We are still on the waiting list for swim lessons (who knew you needed to sign up 4 months in advance?), but we have started taking G to the pool and she loves it! I finally found a raft that was for her age (most are 9 months and older at least). I wasn't sure if she would like it because she can't splash her hands, which is her favorite, but she was pretty happy in the raft for about 20 minutes. She looks like such a big girl!
