My Little Swimmer!

Henry loves the water. We joined a pool club in New Jersey and have been going swimming almost every day. They don't allow swim arms or swim diapers in the big pool, so during the week we are mostly confined to the kiddie pool. Despite these constraints, Henry has made huge progress with his swimming.

Adam missed his calling as a kiddie swim instructor. Just based on his weekend instruction, Henry now jumps from the side of the pool unassisted and goes under the water. He can tread water to the surface and swim a short distance to the side of the pool. He can also move himself along the edge of the pool, stand on his tip toes and he was attempting to swim underwater in the kiddie pool today.

On Sunday, we went out on the boat. Wearing a life jacket, he jumped off the swim platform and was swimming around. Even his big baby mother doesn't like to do that yet.
