Molly Anne's First Swim Class

I'm really sorry but I couldn't just choose one or two of these pictures to post so I'm posting them all!

Molly Anne had her first Little Otter swim class on Thursday morning and she LOVEDDDDD the water!  

She was the youngest in the class but this child did not stop smiling until we got out!  It cracked me up!

I asked the instructor if I'd be a terrible mother if I dunked her for the first time so she could instantly get used to water?!!  (I must admit this was my Dad's idea!!!)  She said well usually we wait until the second class for that.  She said but it looks like she is loving it so let's try it.  (and we play in the bath a lot and I've poured water over her head almost every night so she's used to it!)

Yall.  She came up from being under water with the hugest grin and her tongue out.  It was ADORABLE.  One of the other moms even said out loud how cute she was.  

So yes, Molly Anne loves the water and is already excited about next time!  I am so glad because she HAS to love the water to be in this family!  We grew up going on the boat every weekend.

We'll be going to my brother's house soon to play in the real water, we already have a couple beach trips planned this summer and I know Molly Anne will be in heaven!  I can't wait!

Until then, she'll just be super cute at the indoor pool!

I can't handle it!  ;)

Seriously, these may be the cutest pictures ever!!!!! I totally agree - dunk the kiddo, put water on their face in the bath - don't create the fear :) You're such a great Mama!!!!

I love this -- and it's reminding me of more intense swim classes. A few people I know have taken their kids through, like, Pool Emergency classes where they teach them to swim/float fully clothed to prevent drowning/increase safety at pools. They look terrifying but each and every parent I've talked to who has had a kid go through it LOVED the lessons and outcomes!

She seriously is the cutest thing ever. So glad it went well! Rob will have to take our kids to swim lessons. I am not a fan of the water!

Oh goodness...love her little cover-up! Exposing kids to water and swimming from babyhood is so important! Love that Molly Anne let you dunk her during the first lesson!

Absolutely adorable! My family did the same thing to me when I was little and I'm a fish. Love the water! Can't wait to see all Molly Anne's other water adventures

That's so awesome that she took to the water! What a cutie in her little bathing suit and cover up! You're going to have so much fun in the water with her this summer.
