Little Fishy

Hali is officially a swimmer. This girl loves the water and learned how to swim all by herself this summer. She has always swum with a life jacket and one day I decided to take it off of her just to see what she could do. I told her to swim to me and she did it without a problem. No swim lessons or anything she just figured it out and is really good at it. Once she gets her goggles on she becomes fearless in the water. We even had to buy her some princess dive toys because the second time we let her swim without her jacket she just started diving into the water from the steps. She was beyond excited when I told her about toys that stay on the bottom of the pool for her to dive down to pick up. The girl can hold her breathe for such a long time. She will jump off the side and swim to the steps without coming up for air. Hali also loves to swim like Ariel and do front flips underwater. Sometimes I get nervous because she is so brave in the water. I have always wanted my kids to be good swimmers because I am kind of paranoid when it comes to kids and water. We are just so proud of her and can't believe how fast she is growing up.
