We started class two Sundays ago, and Colin is definitely a fan. We enrolled at the Goldfish Swim School for a 30 minute group lesson once a week. David goes in with him (or I guess I should say that "a parent" - who is 99% of the time going to be David), and they practice kicking, getting in and out of the water, floating (which he HATES) and dunking. Colin would be kicking butt if he would willingly shut his mouth instead of trying to drink the pool water (which is undoubtedly filled with pee - gross).
They give out report cards quarterly, and on his second week, it just happened to be report card week. So we got to see that Colin has progressed all of 2 check marks out of a zillion in his approximately 60 minutes of swim lessons. Um...duh.
In other news, I just officially reached 16 weeks. It has seemed like this pregnancy is tip-toeing at a snails pace, and yet suddenly, I am a month away from the half-way point, growing by the day. I am starting to feel little flutters, and all of this growing is leading to some lovely sciatic nerve pain.
I seem to have forgotten about how pregnancy can be a literal pain in the ass. I scheduled a prenatal massage for tomorrow morning which I am hoping and praying will relieve the pressure and pinching that drives me crazy every time I stand up or walk around. Thankfully, my morning sickness has subsided for now, only to be replaced by strange sneezing at the butt-crack of dawn. Seriously baby, you are kind of driving me nuts. I posted the detailed nitty gritty comparing my first trimester this time versus with Colin over on the Hellobee blog, if you're curious to hear more about my lovely pregnancy symptoms.
That's all for now folks. You will be happy to hear that you won't see any more silly bump pictures of me for 4 more weeks. Between now and then, I have my 16 week appointment (next Wednesday), two weddings, lots of other visitors and fun lined up, plus a not-so-exciting birthday of mine that I'll be "celebrating" (thirty...yay?). So hopefully I'll update with some other random nonsense between now and 20 weeks.
