Our little swimmer!

Well...what can I say? Swim lessons tonight were a splash!! As I have mentioned before, Parker loves bath time, but I was not convinced that she would also like the pool. In my experience, (from previous years of teaching swimming lessons myself) I know that for some reason, once some of the kids actually get into a swimming pool, they just don't like it. But this was not the case for Parker! Immediately upon entering the water she began moving her legs and splashing! She would kick her feet like riding a bicycle and sometimes even a frog kick. She didn't like floating on her back very much, she would mostly squirm, very similar to the squirming we experience upon 90% of all diaper changes! We did get some pictures, but we have plans of taking the video camera tomorrow to capture these moments on film.

So we brought her home once lessons were over, and I was a little nervous about putting her back in the water for bath time. But she didn't mind! She was talking and splashing as usual, and again, threw a little fit when I got her out. We also mistakenly thought that she would be so tired and even go to bed a little early, but.....instead...she stayed up playing until 9:00!! (normal bedtime is between 8:00 and 8:30) All in all, we had a great day!
