...'Til He's Blue in the Face


Jack just LOVES the water. He could splash and splash until he's blue in the face, and that's excatly what he did.

I don't know if it was the higher elevation or just way too much fun, but one day we went swimming during the family reunion and after about 30 minutes of serious kicking and splashing my sister commented that Jack was looking rather blue. I looked down and his lips and arms were a nice shade of purple. He was not ready to be done and wanted to dive right back in the pool, but we took him inside and gave him a warm bath and a nap so he could recover. Eventually he pinked back up, but it was definitely a reality check. He's been doing so well that sometimes I forget my baby is anything but whole and perfect. Instead we were reminded that his body just has different limits then other kids and even though he shows the desire and potential to be the next Michael Phelps, that is just not in the cards.
