My Mama finally got to see Fearless Henry in action today. We took him swimming and there was a baby pool (in which the water went up to Henry's neck or so) and she got to experience him sprinting through the water, going under on purpose (luckily he holds his breath), and general shrieking and mischief. He also does NOT want any help with swimming. Do not hold me, do not help me. Only if he's under water is grabbing him acceptable. And then he comes up laughing. He wants into the deep pool but doesn't want to be held...which is essentially impossible since, you know, he can't swim.
Next time, he's going to have on his life jacket, like it or not! Also, the day he turns two, I will have him enrolled in swim lessons! At this rate, he'll be jumping off the high dive in no time so he needs to have some swimming skills!
