My youngest learned to swim underwater (all on her own) this past summer, at almost-3 yrs old so I am hoping she will follow in her older sister's footsteps and do swim team. Your daughter is doing AMAZING at that age!!! You should def be proud.
All of my kids seem to be fish. I didn't think dd3 was, b/c she didn't learn to swim on her own until almost 4 (which is super late for my other 3, lol) but she went from wanting to only be on the steps one day to swimming all over the pool the next. I chalk it up to her personality though. She was the one who wouldn't take ANY steps at all and one day at 19 months old she got up and walked about 20 steps and that was it.

I'm glad to hear from other swim parents b/c it is hard to know what times are/should be for certain ages.

I was actually surprised (because I live under a rock I guess) that you have swimming pools in Ohio. LMBO. I assume they are indoor pools?
Yes, we love swimming here. I grew up on water (either a pool or on a lake....from Michigan ) so my kids enjoying water was important for me. I just didn't realize how much they would all like it, lol. We literally spend our summer in water. During the short course season (Sept. - Feb.) they are all indoor pools and actually long course season (April - July) for the year round is also. But, our summer club is outdoors. The first week of practice can be a bit nippy and sometimes we will have 1 cold swim meet, but we were pretty lucky last year.

Thanks, yes...she is a determined little girl. I remember at our old house when we had a pool that her older sister threw a toy in the deep end thinking she wouldn't be able to get it when she was 18 months old. Ella must have realized that Lily was still going for it by the look on her face and started to swim to get it, but Lily jumped right in and swam after it and got there first.
