Baby’s First Swim Class

Baby before swim class… happy, excited, doesn’t really know what’s about to happen to her…

Baby after swim class… exhausted, no desire to smile, swimsuit straps falling down, ready for a nap…

She really did have fun!!! Promise!

There was a tiny bit of crying in the beginning… but she warmed up to it pretty quickly.

Turns out my babes is quite the kicker!

There were fourteen babies in the class.

Each baby got their own little duckie to hold onto during class.

They practiced kicking, blowing bubbles, and reaching for toys all while singing nursery rhymes.

That’s pretty much it. The class is only thirty minutes long… but I guess that’s plenty cause M took close to a three hour nap that afternoon… and slept thirteen hours that night! We’ve got 5 more weeks of this… I can seriously get use to these long stretches of sleep 🙂

Have a great night everyone! See you in the morning 🙂

    She is so adorable! I am showing her pics to my husband and trying to bribe him with cute babies. He loves her chubby little cheeks! 🙂

    What? Did you say something Estela? I couldn’t pay attention because I was stuck looking at this ADORABLE baby girl in an adorable polka dot swimsuit. Ah! That smile!

    Oh…and I want to know about the tankini. Were you appropriately dressed?

      The tankini was perfect!! There were no mom’s in a bikini… Lots of mom’s in one pieces, and few (including me) in a tankini 🙂

    So cute! I think swim lessons are one of the best things for babies (maybe because I used to teach them and run swim programming?!?). So many adults grow up scared to swim, it’s so important to get babies comfortable in water ASAP! She’s so sweet!

    I do not have words to tell you how cute those pictures are!!

    Oh, she is so cute. Isn’t it amazing how worn out they get from the water?
    Your class is impressive. We only have 2 babies in our class and we haven’t learned that much in 2 classes.

    SO CUTE!! I love her little swimsuit too.

    I remember putting Maya into any activity that increased the amount of time she slept. We’d go to the park for hours!!

    She is so precious! I love the before and after pictures, kind of how I feel like after a tough workout! Great swimsuit too ! 🙂

    PRICELESS.

    You picked the perfect suit. I love it, I love it, I love it!

    Ahhhhh, I’m dying!! Too cute, too cute!!

  26. Nicole, RD said on April 15, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    SHE IS SO CUTE!!!!!!!! What a beautiful daughter! 🙂 And I like that suit! You picked a cute one!

    I think I could handle motherhood with naps and night’s of sleep like that. That’s way better than our dog does, but I can barely keep up with her 😉

    She is such a cutie! Can’t wait to take my kiddies swimming.
