We often talk about how Collin is 0-60. Emotions are that way, and development of skills seems to be that way too. He can't do it, and then all of a sudden he can.
Swimming this week has been 0-60! Naturally cautious, Collin has always loved to play at the pool but hasn't ever loved getting his face wet and certainly hasn't ever gone underwater "by purpose." Until this week.
Wednesday he experimented with plugging his nose and putting his face into the water.
(Lauren's super busy trying to keep up!)
Thursday he decided to try plugging his nose and putting his whole body under water.
Today, Friday, he said, "If I wasn't plugging my nose, I could use my arms to swim."
And so, just like that, he swims!
