Two out of three

I just wanted to put up a few videos of things we’ve been doing with Felix.

Those of you who have been swimming with Felix know that he has hated getting his face wet since he was born.  (see evidence from bathtime below)


We’ve been working with him on swimming and he’s been learning fast.  He started out really scared of going in the water, floating in a tube, etc., and going underwater was about the worst thing in the world.  But we worked at it every day for a few weeks and we have tons of fun swimming together now.  He loves going fishing (grabbing little fish from the bottom of the pool).

He’s also been loving learning to ride his bike.  I modified a normal bike to make it into a balance bike.  We’re definitely believers in balance bikes over training wheels.  Within a week of being on a balance bike he was already coasting.  Here’s a few weeks into it.

I just put the pedals back onto the bike. He has never ridden anything with pedals (he was completely uninterested in the tricycle we bought him) so he’s still getting the hang of pedaling forward and keeping his feet on the pedals. Anyway, this was from his first day riding with pedals.

Hope everybody reading is having a good summer.

BTW, the title of the post comes from Matt (or Alissa) asking, when they heard that we were working on swimming and biking, if we were training him for a triathlon.  No, we’re not.  But we’re having fun together.
