Tufeil's First Swim

31st May 09 (slightly more than 2months)

My sisters and I went swimming with the babies. We used the swimming pool at our uncle's condo in Yishun.

After just 15min, his fingers got all wrinkly! But we remained inside close to 2hours! When he cried, i gave him ebm i prepared earlier but he aint having any of tt. It seemed he just wanted to sleep in the water.

It was a bit sad that i didnt get to swim "properly". Granted i dont even know how to take breaths in between strokes but way better than just wading in the water? Thankfully, my sis were kind enough to hold him for a few min while i stretched those arms and legs.

Cleaning up after was a nightmare. Each of us had issues with our er.... personal items. I felt really guilty for just washing him w water less than 1min with no soap. But it was diff washing him in a bathtub. An unfamiliar one at that.

However, he was quite comfortable, not crying or anything. So i took it as a good sign.

By now (1st July), he has already had a 2nd swim. Tell u more later.
