Ha, I was going to see if someone would get it for her as an Xmas gift, but when I looked to see what they offered it had free lessons.

Lillian's cheeks are very red. I'm worried. She has no fever or anything, but was very fussy today. I'm not sure if it's possibly the colder weather, or if she may be getting something.

How old is she? Could she be teething?

We didn't do infant lessons but I started them at 2 with Cooper and he started swimming like a little fish by the end of the first lesson. My boss' daughter teaches them all Summer at their pool which is right outside my office window and I have watched some of the youngest children excel the most. She had a 18 month old who also swam like a fish! As they get older, a lot of them have more fear and it can be harder to overcome.

So if they are free, I think it is 100% worth it! They will work on going under water and learning to flip over and float on her back. Those are 2 life skills that will save them from drowning once they master them, even if they can't swim, and in my opinion 100% worth it! I also worked on kicking with mine at that age. They may also work on strokes but not in a structured way. Most likely with toys that they use for them to grab for and bat at.

Nico turned 1 on Sunday. I posted a thread about it if you want to check out the pictures and such. Got a really cool picture of him eating his b-day cake and making a fish face. lol

4 months! I didn't know teething could turn their cheeks red, so I'm pretty sure that's it. They're still pink but not as bad this morning, she's less cranky, and still no fever, congestion, etc.

And I agree, I think starting swimming lessons early is very important. We're a "water family". She's already been in a pool multiple times, we spend time in the pool at least a few times a week in the summer, and are at the beach at least once a week from May-September. I've seen too many drowning/near-drowning incidents with toddlers and young kids, and the statistics show swimming lessons, even for infants, can lessen that risk.

Katie did toddler swim lessons. I wanted to put her in the pre school ones but at that age the parents aren't in the pool with them. She is so anti social with adults she whont go with the instructor so it's kind of pointless.

For those of you not on Facebook:

I really want to that with Lillian! I also want to do one with her in the fallen leaves. I was brainstorming Christmas card photo shoot ideas today
