Swimming update

One of our favorite new family activities is to take Madeleine swimming. As she’s gotten more comfortable with the water, she has really turned into a water baby!

Things she has conquered:

  • Doing bobs (dunking under the water)
  • Holding onto a floating noodle and kicking
  • Floating on her tummy (with us holding her up) and kicking her legs while flapping her arms. We call this her “swimming”. haha
  • Climbing out of the pool, sitting on the edge and sliding off the edge into the water without my help.
  • Having us place her standing on the edge of the pool and while holding our hands she “jumps” in.
We have tried:
  • Blowing bubbles
  • Back floating
We tend to go to the pool every Sunday as a little family ritual. I’m glad she’s taking to the water and loving it so much! Her love for the pool even inspired me to suck it up and go buy a swim suit because she is so cute in the water.
Below are photos of one such day at the pool with her daddy. 🙂

Ready to jump!

Mid-jump!!

Swimming!

All smiles 😀

I was trying to get a good picture of her smiling. And then she made this face. HAHA!

Again with trying to get a cute picture of the two of them, and then she did it again. HA!

Back floating. She is not a fan of it.

Coming up from a bob

Isn’t she cute?? I sure think so. 🙂
