One of our pleasures is swimming every week we go to a swimming class specifically for babies. There aim is to teach babies to respect water and they take advantage of the mammalian diving reflex. Nate loves the water, I suppose being a water birth helps this. Its great seeing how swimming socialises the babies as well, they have to wait their turn and watch the others while waiting. We started swimming at 9 weeks and I think it was probably the best time to start for us.

First Post

Six months ago, we welcomed Nathaniel into our lives
We looked around a few parenting websites and we found that there are various 'types' of parents. I'm not sure we fit a type of parent, but if we did I suppose it would be baby led. However, I don't intend this to be a parenting blog. I intend this to be about our journey, Nate's journey and my journey. Nate enjoys reading, or should that be chewing books and music. I enjoy reading, listening to music, cooking and traveling.
