Parker completed his first series of swim lessons this week! Like I assumed, he loved it. As soon as we’d get in the water he would start splashing. No tears or fits once. When holding him on his belly to chase after toys he would kick like a champ. He didn’t mind water in his face or ears at all. The only thing we didn’t participate in was the underwater dunking. Neither of us were ready. The instructor said when you blow in their face it should cause them to close their eyes and hold their breath long enough for a quick dunk, but every time I blew in his face the opposite would happen and his mouth and eyes would get big and open. So we’ll wait on that. He was also too little to understand the concept of blowing bubbles in the water, but he liked it when I did! Since it is practically September I think we’re going to wait until spring to start up again since he won’t be swimming anytime soon and since he seems (at least for now) to not have a fear of water. We’ll just keep practicing during bath time and hopefully next spring we’ll be ready for dunking. Just keep swimming….just keep swimming….
