Once upon a time, not so very long ago........

Little Leon was born with a poorly heart. This made his Mummy and Daddy sad and they decided to search for a special friend who would keep Little Leon company and look after him while he was in hospital.............

The Adventure begins..............

Little Leon becomes a little swimmer!

18 sleeps till Gramma comes home!

Little Leon loves to splash about in the bath, so his Mummy looked for a warm swimming pool where he could splish and splash about.  Puddle Ducks seemed a good place to start.  The lessons last for half an hour and Leon has  already learned to submerge, sway, splish and splash, spurt. and be safe in his mummy's arms.  They have lots of floating toys and he loves to lay on Mummy's chest and float round while she is held up by a woggle and kicks her legs!

Because Leons condition means its not good if he gets too cold he has a baby warmer made from wet suit material.  Leon recommends one to anyone who gets a bit chilled in the pool.  You look so cool!

Me looking cool in my trunks and babywarmer!
Mummy has an ulterior motive for taking Leon swimming, when he has had his operation, when his scar has healed and Dr Sam stamps his pass to go out again, swimming is good rehab for making Little Leon stronger and improving his hearts fitness. Not to mention how much fun it is!

Little Leon is taking his new found swimming skills to Centre Parcs so he can show off for his Daddy and Auntie Sarah.  This will be his very first holiday!  Gramma and Granddad are coming too!  Gramma wants a pancake and Granddad is going to take Leon riding in his pram!  Woo What fun!

Hallo Little Leon! You are very brave to go and swim. I don't like swimming. I don't like to get the water on my ears.
