He has had very little fear of the water since he was first in the pool, over two years now. Flotation devices were quickly discarded as his ability to tread water on his own was determined.
He's still hesitant to jump in on his own, but he does love being thrown in.
Swimming underwater is his new fun, he's even trying to sit on the bottom (of the shallow end) for a few moments. He's still not interested in being on his back in the water though.
It's a passion, confidence and strength he has developed on his own. He shouts with joy when he's in the water. I'm proud of him.
