Swimming Lessons

Avery took swimming lessons for the first time this summer. I wanted her to take lessons early in the summer so she could work on what she learned during the rest of the summer. I didn't realize when I signed her up for the lessons it would be my first 2 weeks back at work. It wasn't too bad as Alan took her to all but one lesson.

The past summers Avery liked to play in the water, but didn't like water to be splashed in her face and for that matter really didn't like going under the water. The lessons she took were group lessons, so she didn't get the one-on-one attention, but after 6 lessons she feels way more comfortable in the water. We just have to continue going to the pool a few times a week so she can continue improving and enjoying the water. I would like to find some private lessons for her, but so far haven't had any luck.

and I did it
There was a ring sitting on the step that she needed to get.
She stood like this for a while, just holding her breath and thinking about it.

She came up the the ring, but I don't have a picture of the ring.

Karter is 3 Months Old

Karter was 3 months old on June 15th. He is growing like a weed and changing everyday. He is still really easy going and for the most part a happy baby. He has been sleeping through the night for 4 weeks now which is a blessing and eats every 3 hours during the day. He smiles when you talk to him and will giggle if you tickle him in the right spot.

Back to Work

I am a little late in posting, but it was time for mommy to go back to work. I went back to work the 6th of June, so Karter has being going to "school" for 2 1/2 weeks. He is going to the same place Avery goes and has gone since a baby.
