Sam went for his first swim at the hotel pool while we were in Traverse City.
We got his swim shorts at the Mom 2 Mom sale for 50 cents. They are pretty classy - Adidas brand. I bought his swim shirt on clearance at Target for $1.48.
This pool was perfect for Sam's first swim. It was heated and felt closer to bath tub temperature than swimming pool temperature. Sam liked the water and eventually got the hang of kicking and splashing. Mostly he just watched the water.
Overall, swimming was a success! We went to the pool twice, and Sam seemed to like it.
Oh yeah, he also wore a Little Swimmers Swim diaper. The smallest size they have are for 16 lb babies. It was pretty big on Sam, but didn't fall off.
