I almost feel guilty we don’t live somewhere this boy can swim outside more than three months of the year. We go to an indoor pool but he just doesn’t seem to enjoy it as much. We try to go a few times a week, mainly weekends, but summer season? Every day, hours at a time. This weekend we spent 18 hours over three days at the swim club. And my boy was happy, happier than he’s been in months. It was a rough winter (a story for another day) but his face when he sees the water? Worth every penny we pay each year, and then some.
Seriously, y’all. He’s grown. 6 inches and 45 pounds since SEPTEMBER. As in, went from being the fifth percentile for his height to the fiftieth. As in, this is a picture of him from last year on the same date.
And to think at one time we were working with feeding clinics and he had “failure to thrive.” I blame all the Greek salad he’s been eating.
Well, I thank all the Greek salad he’s been eating.
But these pictures doesn’t do it justice. You must see him in action.
