Really, stop reading now if you are anybody but grandparents of True McCaig Erbeck...you will undoubtedly get very bored, very quickly.
Aaron took True to swimming lessons last night as I had to work late (oh and I can't fit into a bathing suit any longer). True sometimes likes lessons, sometimes hates lessons. Last night was a good session. We had a conversation about it when he got home (keep in mind this is the exciting part...my son is having conversations, not just eliciting demands). It went something like this:
(me)- hey True, how were swim lessons?
(him)- fun Mama!
(me)- what did you do at swim lessons?
(him)- I kick-kick-kick-kicked
(me)- wow, what else?
(him)- I jumped! (along with a demonstration of him jumping into the pool)
(me)- you did! cool...what else? did you blow bubbles?
(him)- yes. (blows air to demonstrate, ends up spitting all over himself, laughs)
(me)- did you sing any songs?
(him)- yes! we sung hokey Mama! (process to sing parts of hokey pokey, while turning himself about, falls down, laughs). I'm not hurt Mama. I was careful. You ok Mama?
oh how my heart swelled with this conversation and I found myself crying like a little girl (or a hormonal pregnant woman). It just seems that True has learned so much, so quickly in the last few months. His brain is a sponge and he's not letting anything get past him.
