Last week he finished his first course of swim lessons. He finished off his first round of lessons by pushing off, with his face in the water. While he improved leaps and bounds, his progress report said he lacked confidence. This weekend we helped him gain it.
After some coaxing and a lot of "come on, it's fun!" from six adults, Cooper warmed up enough to jump off the ladder!
Next, he asked me to film him jump off the side. And this is the hysterical conclusion to that request.
Then dude got it. He jumped off the side.
Repeat this about 20 times and you have the rest of our afternoon in the pool. He even jumped off the diving board once!
He's now not just a fish, he's a jumper fish!
