When Declan was 6 months old we did a mommy and me swim class, but only for a couple of lessons. It was expensive and just involved singing the alphabet to the babies while we dragged them through the water. I figured that I could do that without paying someone for the privilege. But at our first class I took this picture which remains one of my favourites:
I just wanted an excuse to post that cute picture. Anyway, after a 2 year hiatus we have resumed swim lessons. He got so comfortable in the water this summer that I didn't want to lose the momentum over the winter months. So a few lessons in and now Declan can swim a couple of strokes on his own. Awesome!
