1 fish, 2 fish, red fish, Quin fish

It’s official – we have a water baby! Quin started her baby swimming lessons last week and she is a little swimming superstar already at 7.5 months. Ok, so maybe she’s just learning to hold her breathe and kick her legs, but still, she’s very cute at it!

Living in hot, sunny, coastal Australia it is imperative all our kids learn to swim from a young age. Pretty soon she’ll be able to fall into the water and find her way to the edge of the pool. But for now it’s just mega-cute to watch her splash water and point at other babies. She’s the youngest in the class and the loudest. She’s a funny, awesome kid.

The swim school uses the techniques developed by Lawrie Lawrence and involves a lot of games and singing.
