Baby Dip

Now that we yanked Penny off the acid reflux medicine and Duacal supplement and drugged her up with Tylenol for her fever and Benadryl for the bubbles she's been blowing out her nose we can go back to the Esq status quo which seems to involve Mommy, Esq. and Husband (and Nanny) parenting the equivalent of a 6 month old and a 9 month old which sucks.

Instead let's talk about something fun and filled with chlorine - swim lessons! Baby Dip started 2 weeks ago and I'm happy to report my kids haven't inherited a fear ("respect") that Husband has of water*. I knew they liked the bathtub and was hopeful they would be okay in a larger pool. They loved it!

Waiting For Class to Begin
Ned thinks it is easy to swim - see someone else drags you!
Penny thinks about going after the duck
Ned gives his friend Georgie a kiss
Daddy will catch you!
Do you think there is an "n" missing? Neither does Husband.
Waterfall fun
Time to dry off

Special Thanks to Georgie's Mom Julie who took all these photos.

*True Story: I once told Husband I wasn't sure I could marry him because he didn't swim. He never learned but I did make him go snorkeling during our honeymoon in Hawaii.

Yeah, I'm not sure how Aaron grew up not knowing how to swim. I knew someone in college who didn't either but he was from Alaska so that was a legitimate excuse. The kids look like they really enjoy the water and I'm planning to do the same for Cameron when she's old enough.

Glad they're enjoying it! Looks like a blast.

OMG, I can't even handle the cuteness!

awesome pics! Alex can be a swim advisor if you need one. If you guys come down this summer we should all go to our pool together. I especially enjoy the letter arrangement. Alex prefers to swim after letter Zs himself.

Oh too cute! Looks like a lot of fun.

Penny will catch up, I have faith :)

ADORABLE!!! Looks like Mommy Esq and Husband had a good time, too. By the way, sometimes with the right expression, Ned looks like you, too, Mommy Esq. :-)

I'm glad to hear your little ones are enjoying swim lessons. My husband and I have been debating whether or not to start our 8 month old girls now or to wait till they're 3. Looking forward to further up-dates.

They're adorable! I love the water pictures! And no, I kept Fiona rear-facing 'til we came here (2 years, 8 months) and now she's forward facing. But imagine if she had arrived here rear-facing! I'd have been laughed out of town.
