There was a pretty good (3-4 weeks) transition period as she cried off and on and didn't want to be left by herself, but now she's doing great! I still have to convince her that momma will sit and watch her and she still peeks back to look for me every once in awhile, giving a huge grin & a sweet wave. However, she is learning SO MUCH and has become so much more comfortable in the water.
I haven't taken many photos at swim lessons because honestly the lighting is terrible! However, we have recently discovered "splash time" at our local aquatic center & Elyse is IN LOVE!!!
We took Hubby back on Sunday afternoon/evening to show off her skills with the slide & we had a blast. There is a slide area that is perfect toddlers and Elyse can even touch at the bottom of the slide, so we were never concerned about her going off by herself. Plus, swim lessons have taught her so much and she's not at all afraid about the water being in her face or going under for a bit!
|Snack first of course!|
|Daddy & Elyse got in trouble for "jumping" in the pool in another area...apparently there was too great of a fall risk...Ooops!|
|Cheese for Momma! Oh how I love this girl!|
We grabbed pizza afterwards and I think we've found our new Sunday night tradition! Swimming pool & pizza...it can't get much better than that!
