My Little Fish
As soon as I can figure out how to get the videos saved to my computer, I will post them. Kingston is swimming like a fish these days. He can hold his breath for a crazy amount of time, likes to be pushed under to the bottom of the pool to pick toys up, does full-on cannon balls off the side, and can jump in and swim to the steps unassisted.
The only problem? He cannot, cannot, CANNOT get his little head above the water to take a breath. He can swim, yes. But he can't breathe while swimming, which is sort of a critical part of it. :) I'm not sure if he is just not strong enough to paddle his arms while getting his head up, whether he is just being lazy about it since I am always there to grab him if he needs to come up, or if the just needs someone (other than Mom) to teach him how to do it. Regardless, he is a great swimmer, especially for being only 3 1/2!
I'll post the video eventually!
