My first time swimming!!

So HL got his first swimming lesson a couple weeks ago and he is a little fishie! He loved the nice warm water and kicked and splashed the whole time. He was a happy little boy until we decided to give him his first dunk at the end of our pool trip... he wasn't too fond of that but oh well he'll get used to it.

I used to teach infant/parent swim classes so I know the importance of getting them in the water as soon as possible. Did ya'll know that an infant will inherently paddle their way to the surface of water? (they just lack the strength to lift their head above the surface) Pretty cool!

So I dreadfully put on my bikini at 2 months post partum to give my little man his first lesson in the pool (which was at a lovely 92 degrees!)

And here's a photo documentary of our first time swimming.... yawning already...
























So far so good.... with grandma YaYa












And with Daddy...



































And dunk #1...

And dunk #2

Not so happy anymore :)

But we survived and can't wait to do it again!

how long are you going to give him lessons? I want to start my son in them but want to approximate how many weeks he's going to need.

Well when I used to teach our lessons were always 6 week increments. I will teach him myself until he's about 3 and then I'll put him in general lessons until I'm confident wth his abilities.
