Emily had her swim lessons again last night and I just wanted to update that she went under for the first time! yay! She did awesome. Daddy was there watching her for the first time (he can only stay for about 15 minutes before he has to leave for work) and the swim instructor asks us each week if we are ready - but she totally leaves it up to the parent. So I decided to do it especially so Daddy could see it! So what they have you do is she holds Emme and you stand in front of them. Then you blow in her face and she puts her under and then lets go -- she actually puts her pretty far down and then you take a step back and she actually swam to me!! It was so scary, but fun too. I could see her under the water and she had her eyes wide open and she was just kicking away to get to me. It was so cute. As soon as she came up she grabbed me and just looked at me like "what the hell was that?" ha ha It was funny. She didn't even cough or anything - what a good girl!!!!!
