Okay so we took Sparrow to the lake for the first time this weekend.. She had never been in water before so I was worried if she would know how to swim... I figured that Id just carry her in first and set her in shallow water to see what she would do... Well as soon as I stepped foot in the water she started doing the doggie paddle in my arms! It was so funny! Her instincts were telling her to swim and she had never even TOUCHED the water before! .. So I just threw her in and she swam like a champ! I was VERY proud of her.. She kept swimming OUT of the lake though.. We will have to teach her to stay in the water
Here are some pics from the lake!
Look mom I can swim!!!!!
I think I want to get out of the lake now mom...
How come Im all wet mom?
and of course Breed likes to play catch with daddy in the lake!
Sounds like fun! Did she sleep well...that's the best part. Can't wait to see pictures. If you and another person are in the water and play catch with one of her toys, she'll probably stay interested enough to stay in with you.

That's sweet! The first swims, when successful, are just the greatest joy aren't they? I'll bet you were just beaming.

First time swimming is so much fun. Photobucket is down for maintenance. :
Looking forward to seeing the pics.
I got some pics up! YAYYYY!!!! I was just beaming.. Its like when one of your children learns how to swim.. I was sooo excited! ;D
Sparrow's first swim. How exciting! Great pics.
fab pictures, we took poppy to the lake where we live last month and it really is like having your child go in, its fantastic the way they know how to swim! poppy was the same i loved it. just watch for smelly ears, pops got a stinky ear where she had put her head under, i got drops and it soon went, but i do have to say i think i've started a water mad relationship for poppy she's mad on the hose! chasing it around the garden like mad......its very funny, stop and start it and watch them jump.
Way To Go Sparrow!
