Hot Potatoes

on May 2, 2014

I started taking Elvis swimming in August when he was maybe about 11 weeks old and along with his enjoyment of being in the water increasing, so have his skills. He started holding on to the edge over a month ago now, hanging on there as I count to ten.

Well, at our last swimming lesson I noticed something that amazed me no end. At the end of our lessons we have playtime and I was using it to get him to practice holding on. There he was sinking down a bit, spitting out the water as his mouth dunked too low and then pulling himself back up. He almost pulled himself all the way out. That wasn’t even the amazing thing though.

He started walking along his hands along the side to get to some other toys. At the beginning of lessons we sing “One potato, Two Potato” as the baby (or parent holding) moves their hands along the wall, walking their hands. It’s a safety trick to use the edge to get to the steps. And my baby did it.

He is going to love swimming in Spain!
