Liam’s swimming videos

Well I finally remembered my camera and I’m glad it was on a day like today! The lesson after Liam’s canceled so we got to stay a bit longer, and I’m so thankful because he was having a blast!! This was his best lesson yet! I wish I could’ve recorded every moment. He started off with his usual “please don’t take me away from my mommy” mad cry, but then eased up and enjoyed himself after a few minutes of tears (and after I left his sight). We are so thankful to have the opportunity to work with coach Beth! She coaches for the Special Olympics and really has a heart for teaching kids with special needs!! We started lessons with her in September when Liam was 9 months old and he has definitely had his share of crying lessons but I think he has turned a new leaf… thanks to Beth’s hard work and daddy’s help!

I posted some pictures on Facebook but thought I’d show you some videos too. I took so many, so here are a few of the highlights I was able to capture today. You’ll notice he knows when she’s going to put him under water to he knows to take a deep breath… so cute!!

    Liam is turning into an awesome little fishboy. He’s really progressing and I love how proud he is of himself. Always love to see pics and videos of his growth. He’s going to be an awesome big brother to Princess Theissen. Love your precious family.
