Hudson Swims.


Hudson had his 2nd swim lesson last week.

He's very comfortable in the water...he loves to jump in and splash and play in the fountains.

He doesn't so much like the "lesson" part. (he didn't want to kick his legs. he didn't want to hold on to the float and swim. he didn't want to wear a floatie. and he especially didn't want to blow bubbles in the water.)

It's pretty safe to say he'd rather just have fun. 
& thats okay with me.

--Here's a little film I made of his time at the pool--

Oh that video is adorable! I especially love where you're holding him and he wraps his arm around you when you kiss him. SO SWEET! I love watching little kids in the swimming pool. They're always so adorable. =)

Even if you don't learn to swim, looks like you're having a lot of fun. You are a little doll.

Katie said...

Aww he looks like he loves the water! Cutie pie.

The Swimming Coach said...

Yes Sir my little buddy. You are going to love the water just like your mother and I. Your mom nailed it by saying you love the play part but not so much the lesson part. You did do a little better this week than the first week. You did float with the noodle and you did blow just a tiny bit of bubbles. Oh well lets see what you get into this Saturday.

LOVE YOU!!!

What a fun video.. I got a little dizzy in that first part where you were filming yourself walking I think.. Haha! But other than that slight discomfort.. I LOVED IT! I'm inspired! I want to make one!

And oh I loved the video! favorite part, when hudson gave his mama a super sweet side kiss and squeeze around the neck! *sigh* so precious!

and i can understand why he just wants to have fun! He has plenty of lessons in the future to work on the technical stuff :) You are such a sweet momma Ashley...you're awesome at following the wise words "let them be little" (i love that song:)

Have a great weekend!

So so so cute!! He's so lucky to be learning how to swim. He won't have to be a twenty-six-year-old that's afraid of the water like I am! :/

Your video is so good! I am impressed with you editing skills...the little slow motions and just the right time! WOW! so cool! How do you do that? I have an editing program on my mac but I am not sure how to use it and kind of afraid to try! haha

love this post!

AND, I am also (shamelessly) plugging a giveaway on my blog. But it is for a really cool vintage t-shirt (winner gets to choose their design from the website) so I don't feel too guilty about it ;) The Mitten State Vintage T-Shirt Giveaway!

Ashley he is so adorable! I remember my first swim lesson but I was much older. Looks like he really enjoys the water!

Raven said...

that video is ADORABLE. Seriously. Did I miss something, or was he not in any like, arm floaties or anything? How is he swimming in the pool without them? ( and I ask that NOT in a judging way lol!! Only in a surprised way because if Gunner goes in without floaties, he sinks)

My boys love the water too, and it's so awesome to watch.

I also think you should do a post about your awesome video editing skills. Do you do them on a Mac?

and I loved seeing the swimming coach in his swim trunks but where or where was miss swoopie in her bikini??
