Growing Out On A Limb

At the pool. He swims!

Last Sunday was a pretty chill day, hanging out around home.

Daddy took the boys on a nature walk for the morning.  They love every second of being outside and wandering around the woods.  It’s good for the imagination too apparently… here they are “fishing”.

This was actually a big day for us in the pool.  Oliver made big strides in the pool last year but was never willing to try getting in the water with any sort of floating aid.  I knew if he tried he would realize that he could actually swim a bit but he’s not all that open to new things and he’s kind of hard to convince when his mind gets stuck on something.

On Sunday he was wandering around the wading pool by laying down and walking his hands along the bottom.  I told him if he had a life jacket on it would help him swim and was super shocked when he agreed to it with no coercing.

And he did it!  It was the sweetest looking dog paddle I’ve ever seen and he was beaming – so proud of himself!  And once again he showed me how much he is growing up and opening up to be accepting of new things.


Apparently Emery needed a break from all that swimming fun!

Just another gorgeous summer day!
