We introduced Mia to swimming right when she turned 6 months. We’re lucky to have a great neighborhood pool close to the house, plus a membership to the indoor one at Tech. Being from Florida, swim skills are extremely important to me and I want to make sure she is comfortable around water and is able to swim at an early age.
We started swimming classes at Agnes Scott College a couple of weeks ago and she is doing great! She seems to enjoy being in the water. She definitely likes to kick and wade and chase after toys in the water, but she certainly takes swimming very seriously as you can tell by the look on her face.
This past week we did a little more back-floating, which she tends not to like so much. And we took our first underwater plunge – thankfully no crying!
