Swim Lessons Begin!

J took Jaxson to his first swim lesson at our gym this morning! Unfortunately his little friend S. wasn’t feeling well so she couldn’t make it BUT he had a great time nonetheless. They had the babies blowing bubbles in the water to get comfortable and started teaching them how to float on their backs, resting his head on J’s shoulder to feel safe. Apparently they will learn to float on their back with just your hand under their back next week, but J felt adventurous and started trying it out with Jax and he loved it! He was laughing and having a good time and he even jumped off the steps to her in the water. She called on the way home to let me know how it went and he was starting to drift off to sleep in his car seat, he was so worn out!

J is not such a big pool fan, she prefers to relax and sunbathe on a floaty instead. 😉 On the other hand, I splash and swim around and play games and am soaking wet at all times from head to toe. I am hoping he becomes quite the little fish and loves the water as much as I do/did as a kid. I’m so happy that he didn’t freak out or cry or scream (usually when he first goes in the water he gets a little spooked and has a death grip on Mamas) and that he was a good boy today. It sounds like he’s going to enjoy learning how to swim, and its good one-on-one time for Jax and Mama J to have together. 🙂

    That’s so cute! I can’t wait to do swim lessons with my little guy. Is this the age they recommend starting?
