Dylan swims the length

Dylan LOVES being in our pool.  He wants to go in morning, noon and evening.  So when we're  home, that's exactly what we do:)  He hasn't had swimming lessons, but since both Steven and I were swimming teachers ourselves, we had him in from the beginning.  The thing is, it's soooo dificult to teach my own kids b/c it's dificult to differentiate from fun mommy time to structured lesson time.  I'm focusing more on safety with Isaac than getting him to swim.  I wish I could afford to take time off of work to take Isaac to ISR swiming lessons like the ones I get to take pictures of.  Anyway, we still see what Dylan can do every once in a while and he can do it! 

Dylan loves the attention.  Notice his ring that he insists on wearing on his palm side?  And his silly bandz?  He got some in a goodie bag from a birthday party and had them on ever since.  Now I'm hearing in the news what a distraction they can be - now why didn't I think of them?:)

In this video, he is actually laughing and looking at me a little in the end.  He needs to learn how to side breath, and if he weren't my kid and I were getting paid, by now he would know how to blow his air out under the water and would side breath (and his arms would extend more), but I love that he loves the water:)

Ohmygosh, but it looks like he's getting so tuckered out at the end that I want to pull him to safety to make sure he doesn't drown!

And what are bandz? Like rubber bands? And they're a distraction from what?

kids trade the jelly stretchy bracelets b/c they're different colors and shapes. like trading cards or something. dylan just likes to wear them, like rays shorts or something.
