Before getting in the water, he was SO excited.... afterwards, well, you can see the above picture, it took a little while to like swimming.
Finally, 20 minutes later, we can almost get him to give a "staredown" at the camera, in the water. I only had to walk around with him singing "Follow the prophet" to let him know the pool was a safe place. We must work on swimming more. Grandpa Johnson keeps saying I need to "deshelter" him.
The gang. I do take comfort in remembering that Sadee (that's her in purple bug eyes) REFUSED to get in the pool (and even showers for awhile) when she was little and now she LOVES to jump in. Ava same way. In fact, I was the "cool" person they both wanted to show how they could jump in the water.
"Alisa, my bottom touched the bottom of the pool!" (Sadee)
"My whole head goes under the water Alisa" (Ava said this when I caught her before her whole head went under...oops, how was I to know?)
