We've been lucky to be able to go to the pool almost every morning this summer and Matthew is loving it! He loves to swim and he recently has began to learn how to swim without his floaties. He will kick off from the stairs and swim to Leilani who is about 5 ft away. He doesn't have the strength or technique to keep his head above the water but he holds his breath till he gets there and kicks his little heart out. its also been nice because after we get back and eat a snack, I dont have to fight him to take a nap. He will usually knocks right out.
