We have been trying & trying to get Cole to take his floatie off & try swimming. I knew he had good form with it on, but he was just too scared. Well, yesterday we were playing on the slip-n-slide and we all ran to jump in the pool & he jumped before he realized he didn't have it on. It worked! He started swimming & swam all day. He even started swimming with his face in the water (although I didn't get that on video) by the end of the day. I'm SOOOO happy!
