After spending the day at the Columbus Zoo for Kevin's Birthday with the G Family, we spent the night in a hotel with a swimming pool. Of course, swimming in the hotel pool, was the highlight of the weekend for all the cousins. But while all the kids were swimming something AMAZING happend...KEVIN WAS "SWIMMING"!!! Or probably more accurately, staying afloat by egg beatering his legs and moving his right arm and sometimes his left arm in the deep end with no support. It has been over a year since Kevin was in a full size swimming pool where he couldn't just walk around in the pool. So I asked our favorite brain experts how did this happen without any instruction, and he said "A TON OF ORGANIZATION AND MATURITY...and all the crawling, creeping, reflexes, AND (my favorite part), WANTING TO BE LIKE THE OTHERS." This is exactly what this Mama needed as her baby boy celebrated his 8th Birthday!!! Kevin had a grin ear to ear the entire time he was in that pool. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LITTLE FISH!!!
