A future Olympian

Chris has been wanting to take Miles to our community pool for a while now, but I kept putting it off because they don’t make swim diapers small enough for newborns. And also, it’s really hot here. But I bought some diapers one size bigger than he wears now, we put him in the only swim suit we have (6-12 months), and we went over there after dinner.

He seemed indifferent to the water, which I guess is better than him screaming.

I did manage to convince Chris that dunking him wouldn’t be a good idea yet. Maybe in a few months.  

We’re not sure if he can float yet. If he takes after my family, his forehead will be the only thing floating after about 10 seconds. But as you know, Chris was a swimmer, so hopefully he gets more skills from that side of the family.

love it!!! and i totally agree, they look so much alike!

i don't float either. at least not on my back. i can tread water like nobody's business, but the back float totally escapes me.
