To celebrate Quinn's birthday, we took an overnight trip to Phoenix (nice resorts there are CHEAP in the summertime) and went swimming. To our great shock, Quinn knew how to swim! He walked in the water up to his waist and then leaned forward, let his feet float, arched his back and started paddling. We couldn't believe it. We know he received physical therapy for his brachial plexus injury at the orphanage, and our best guess is that they did some water therapy.
Quinn and Ba-Ba head into the pool:
Hey, this is fun!
Here's how it's done:
Quinn kept trying to push Tom's hand away so he could swim on his own, but Tom wouldn't budge:
Whew, swimming makes us thirsty!
My favorite picture of the day. This is Quinn's cow impression, but here he looks just like a little monkey:
