Just got back from an old friend's bachelor party -- bowling and karaoke-ing and drinking, very lovely all around -- and wanted to note:

This afternoon -- Thursday afternoon, August 23, the kid swam on his own for the first time, at a pool, swimming back and forth between his mom and me, only a few feet, over and over, at first not really swimming but almost, and getting closer, and wanting to do it, and then doing it, pulling and kicking himself along through the water, and pulling his head out to breathe, and reaching one parent and then turning around and doing it again.

Witnessing the breakthrough was really something. The kid was so happy.
