Little Swimmer

Adalyn had her first swim lesson of the summer last night. (If you remember, she took lessons last summer also.) Last summer the lessons were at the YMCA indoor pool (and they didn't allow cameras) but this year we got her in lessons through the parks & rec department at the local pool. It wasn't quite as organized as the lessons at the YMCA, but it was nice because it was outside (and way cheaper!) Of course there were other moms with their cameras taking pictures but because of my experience last summer I had left my camera at home so all of the pictures are from my phone. Next lesson you can be sure that I'll have my camera with me! :)

Here are some pictures I took before we left the house. She looked so cute in her little suit that I had to get some pictures. I was leaning over to get on her level, so she started leaning over. So I squatted and then she squatted. She is such a little mini-me and repeats everything! (Including using the big potty! If you didn't read my tweet from Tuesday night, Adalyn sat on the potty and went pee pee in it without being prompted or us trying to potty train her...she just likes to do everything we do! You can be sure that mommy and daddy were cheering and clapping and making fools of ourselves! We were so excited and Adalyn was so proud of herself!)




Adalyn was the youngest in the class (it's 18-36 months so it's quite a range) and she was one of the bravest kids! I was so proud of her! No tears!!




I think she had a blast! I cant wait to see how much of a little fish she is at the end of her lessons! Such a happy girl! I figured after all that swimming she'd be exhausted but I could barely put her to bed because she was being so loving and kissing and kept whispering sweet nothings (her new favorite thing to do) to me. She requests a specific bedtime song from me lately and then sings it with me and wants me to sing it over and over. All I wanted to do was just cuddle her and sing with her!

Love that suit - so cute!
The pics are pretty good for your iphone.
Is that the Southland pool - holy slides in the background.
Love a good swim class - K starts one next week and it's outside too. We're very excited.
