I swim!

I swim

Sophia started declaring her actions to us over Memorial Day weekend –while visiting some friends she saw the big kids using a zip line. Not one to be outdone she bravely stood under it and told everyone “I do it”. That became her battle cry, her challenge to herself and to us to keep up.

Recently we’ve added other verbs– I go fast!, I sit down!, I listen! (which I really like), and now I swim! She’s always liked the pool, she loved her floats and she’d splash around with us, but in the last few days she and her arms (aka water wings) have taken it to a whole new level. She moves around on her own, she kicks and she jumps right in (under close supervision of course!) Not quite swimming yet but she’s off to a pretty good start.

I do it!

I do it!

    That is awesome Diana, and I love Sophia’s attitude… Is “I go fast” from your driving trips?
