What a relief it is he can swim without a floaty! He just up and did it, as kids do. Since we lived in Cayman for the first three years of his life, I always assumed he'd naturally be a little fish. That didn't happen. He was timid in the water and is only now getting comfortable with it. Yesterday, he was excited to show me something in the pool. Instead of putting on his yellow floaty, he got into the pool and proceeded to swim to the other side. All by himself!!! WooHoo!!!! No more worrying about him falling into the pool and drowning and a great accomplishment for him. So proud. And again, no more worrying about him falling into the pool and drowning!!!!!
