Swimming lessons are not fated to go normally for us... Today, about 10 minutes before the class started, Madds went to sleep. So I sat on the stairs, on the tiny pool tiles, and held her as she napped. For about 25 minutes. Then we got showered and got in the pool. Once she was in the water I think she had fun. She kicked and splashed and looked around. Still not too many smiles but she seemed comfortable. I held her on her back, to float. And she immediately lifted her feet to her mouth and started sucking. That's my girl!
