He quickly learnt how to swim under water for a short distance but would always stand up when he needed a breath. Thinking the life guards might frown upon us if we took him into the deep pool at our local leisure centre we made the most of the pool at Marwell hotel. The boy couldn't touch the bottom so decided to see if he could take a breath and carry on again.
He did! It's not the most elegant of swims but hopefully it could save his life if the need every arises and I am a very proud mummy.
After a few lengths he got tired and decided to roll around as well as making it to the other side - here he is in action.
