The next Michael Phelps!

P is officially a "swimmer"!


There is a swim school in our area called Emler and frankly even before we got pregnant, I was dying to go! I couldn't wait until we had our own little ones because lets be honest, there is nothing cuter than baby bathing suits or babies swimming.

I looked online and found that Emler offered a class called Bathtub Babies that is for 2 to 5 month-olds and is used as an introduction to water and swimming. Awesome! This was just what I was looking for...but how much? I dug around some more and realized that...holy crap...it was FREE!!! I did have to pay a $25 registration fee but the classes were free from now until the end of the session which is in January. They meet every Saturday at 1:15. I couldn't sign up fast enough!

Grammy came with to be the official photographer and videographer and let me just say that we had a blast! I'm sure P loved it because he didn't cry and frankly he knew he was the smartest and cutest baby there.

This is more of an introductory class so we don't submerge the babies yet but we did lots of different things and every activity had a fun song that went with it!

We floated on our back!


And on a raft!


We rode Mr. Duck!

"Round and round and round we go...round we go...round we go. Round and round and round we go...riding on Mr Duck...quack quack!"

And we bounced!


Oh and P got to wear these ROCKIN' swim pants...I mean how cute are these?! (They have to wear 2 pair...just in case.)


It was an awesome experience and so much fun! I am so excited to have the time to spend with P and I cant wait until next week!

Happy Swimming!

Oh and this picture is just funny because the little girl behind us kept trying to pull her mom's swim top off. Apparently someone was hungry! Oh and P looks pretty much traumatized in this picture...I swear he had fun!
