2nd Swim Class – he went underwater!

Nathan went underwater today for the first time – and did okay!

I was really scared to even try to take him underwater, as he usually freaks out if his face touches the water. But we had a lovely, kind instructor today and she encouraged us to at least try. We let her do it the first time and, lo and behold, he was okay! He wasn’t thrilled, but at least he wasn’t terribly upset. We reasured him and then he was smiling again within seconds!

This is a big deal for me, I never thought he’d ever be able to go under water, so to think that he may learn to do this is incredible. We are just so excited and proud of him! After that first time, we went under a few more times and he was okay!

Here are some of today’s pics:
