Isabella is a real water baby and there is nothing that she likes better than going swimming. It is great seeing her smiling and laughing in the pool but it is also terrifying that she has no sense of fear in the water and thinks nothing of walking out of her depth! or if she is being held by in the deep end she just wants you to let go and let her float. She has her armbands and loves jumping off the side (not bad for 22months old!) and she doesn't even mind her face getting wet. It is a great idea to get them used to water at this age especially if they enjoy it as much as Isabella does and its great exercise for us.
