Mallory loved playing on this play area, but she really wanted to go to the deep water so she she could show me how awesome she can swim. We spent a lot of time swimming from side to side. She can now get her legs up on top of the water and kick and make splashes. She can also hold herself up to get a breath and go back under and swim again. We are working on kicking and scooping at the same time. She loves to swim, and mommy loves to watch her learn new things!
