На курсах по плаванию Беатриче старше всех: с нами 3-х и 4-х месячные детки. Но удовольствия от воды она, как кажется, получает больше всех. Курс состоит из пяти занятий по часу, вода теплая, больше 30 градусов. На последнем занятии будем нырять с головой. #infantswimming #swimmingbabies #плаваниедлямалышей #учимсяплавать #10месяцев #10months
