Watch-Out Michael Phelps!

We may have a future olympic swimmer on our hands folks! :o) We are on our 3rd day of swim lessons and Kelty is doing great! Al was able to come with us to class today and take a few photos and videos of Kelty's progress. Our class is first thing in the morning which gets us off to a nice start in the morning ... I think Kelty enjoys getting out of the house right after breakfast.

Walking to the aquatic center with Daddy
Swimming on the torpedo and blowing bubbles. This little torpedo swimmer is awesome! There is a small net under Kelty's thighs that help support his body but gives him the sensation of floating freely in the water.

He's a really good kicker and comfortable in the water ... it actually makes a little nervous how comfortable he is. He is really boyant like Al (I'm a sinker).
The smile Kelty gave me in this video literally melted my heart ... it really made my day!
Throughout the class he likes to swim his way over to the floating toys and hoard them ... like he's deprived of toys!

The first day we practiced dipping them under the would smile and sign "more" after surfacing. Wish we would have captured it on video!


  1. I love the picture of Al walking with Kelty into the aquatic center. I'll watch the videos again..when I have volume.ha!

    By the way, I'm a floater..

  2. I' SO happy that Kelty is liking the swimming classes =) He's a natural!
    Oh, and I love the voice recording at the top of you's good to hear your voice =)

  3. Grandma "nuts" would love to swim with the littlest member of the family. Needless to say I would love to also. Kelty is so cute and so happy in the water,maybe a little scuba buddy for Rachel. Missing you more and more each day. Still trying to figure out the problem we seem to have with messenger. Grrrrrrrrrrrr
