Today we took you for your first swim at Daddy's gym in Northwood. It was Asha and Aunty Roslyn's last day with us, so it took two trips to get us all there in one car. Mummy was very grateful for the extra help!
Mummy and Daddy weren't too sure about which flotation devices would help, so we tried everything in the course of the swim!
Lewis, you were very unhappy through most of the experience, and only started to relax towards the end. You were gripping onto us very tightly and the face below was the one we saw through most of the time in the water!
Henry, you loved the whole experience and felt no fear. Daddy called you "fish boy"!
Luckily, Aunty Roslyn remembered to take her camera and she got these few photos for us, before being told by the lifeguard that she wasn't allowed to take photos.
Henry, you got so confident that you even started to splash Daddy!
We weren't able to take any more photos, but then we got some noodles and wrapped them around you, and Lewis, you started to feel a bit safer and enjoyed the swim more. Getting you showered and dressed was quite awkward and fairly time consuming, but the process was helped by having a playpen in the family change room.
We hope to take you swimming again soon, but that was a great and memorable experience.
