This week was Mat Week which means that the instructor rolled out several different kinds of mats and the babes learned how to play on the mat that was floating on water and then also how to "fall off" the side and then grab back on. Granted it's going to take a lot of repetition to create this "natural" instinct in them, but it's good to start now. Ace had a lot of fun on the floating mat once he realized he wouldn't sink. The instructor put out a ton of toys and they crawled around and played on them. Our little
The only thing he still doesn't favor is the back float, and this week he was having NONE of it. Glad that since we're adding new things every week that the back floating isn't a long portion of the program, but maybe we can work on that sometime in the future in a free swim day.
In other news! Ace is back to eating solid foods again with enthusiasm for a few days now. Guess he decided it was ok to do so again. Yesterday he ate an entire jar of bananas and about half a jar of Spinach/Carrot combo (which yes was hidden in the bananas) and then this morning he's enjoyed half of a "breakfast" jar consisting of apples, pears and oatmeal and just now for lunch enjoyed about a 1/4th of a jar of sweet potatoes. So yes he's enjoy the sweeter tastes at the moment, but at this point I'm just so excited he's consuming anything besides breast milk I'll take what I can get!!
So that's the life on a Tuesday for our baby bear and his proud mama!
