A great day

First swim of the year
Loves the new floaty
We all like swiming
I think I got the hang of this dad

I could care less about fish, I just want to eat the poll

First time he held the toy on his own and made it play too!
We had a great time just hanging out with family and friends one day! All of this happened that day! We got some new floating toys for the boys. This was the first time using them and after a little bit, they loved them! It is always a challenge to find something to work for Noelie that won't break the piggy bank. The one he is in will work for a while because it can go into 4 different stages of learning to swim!
Then we went fishing! Noelie actually seemed to like it and be interested in it but the other one could really have cared less. All of this is an effort to make life as "normal" as possible. I think that is a common thing with families that have special needs kids. We get creative and make adaptations to just about everything so our kids will be able to do as much as possible. We are ambitious like that.
After all of the excitement of the day, Noelie still decided to show off with his toy. Until now, I would have to hold this toy while he hit it to make it play. Now he can hold it and make it play all on his own! I still have to hand it to him but he seems to be very proud of his new found independence. We are too!
