I always thought babies have to be able to hold up their heads before going swimming, so I never tried taking Joshua to the pool. But a friend visiting with us said as long as I can hold up Joshua’s head, he will be fine. So I decided to give it a whirl.
We went to the new Vancouver Aquatic Centre pool, and boy was it fun! The pool itself is state of the art, the water is lukewarm and comfortable, and Joshua had a good time. He was very calm the entire time, and made happy noises a few times.
I think we’re going to be going to the pool a lot more often now. 🙂
