One Fish, Two Fish, Edwin is a New Fish

He doesn't seem to mind being dunked, at least.

We went swimming in two different pools yesterday. At the first I dunked him three times, and at the second I dunked him just once so Dan could witness it. The key is to blow in a baby's face right before you take them under so they suck in their breath. I learned that little trick years ago when I took a toddler to the Y for swim lessons.

It was nice to be in a pool on at least one of these crazy hot days. Hope you were able to do the same somewhere!

  1. So fun! He looks so big in his swimsuit! Good for Edwin for going under. The blowing in the baby's face trick also works if you have a fainter. Kathryn used to faint whenever she got hurt badly (because she'd forget to breathe), but blowing in her face when we saw it coming got her to suck some air in.
