Week old news flash - with the aid of a newly purchased (but slightly used - from the thrift store of course) floaty swimsuit, Lucy can now dog paddle. We've been taking the girls to the swimming pool at the YMCA most Sundays. Lucy loves it but mainly hangs out on the entry ramp jumping up and down and splashing. Josie spends her time jumping into the pool from the side, getting shoved back and forth through the water between Mitch and I.
Last Sunday Lucy had a major breakthrough when she started, all on her own, dog paddling!! By the end of our hour long swim session she dog paddled all the way across the pool by herself (with only a few rest breaks clinging to the side of the pool).
You go girl.
