Bennett's finally in the tub!
Of course this is not Bennett's first bath but it is the first time I've put him in the baby tub. I have been doing sponge baths because frankly I was lazy and didn't want to go down to the basement and get the tub and then he had his surgery and he's not supposed to be submerged while his incision is healing. Well, I wouldn't be submerging him at this age any way so I thought it was time for him to get a feel for a "real" bath. He seemed to like it much better than being washed down with a wash cloth while lying on a towel on the counter-go figure! (If you look closely you can see his incision-not bad, huh?)
It got me thinking about how I have pictures of all my kids wrapped up in their towels after a bath- nothing cuter if you asked me! Here they all are at about the same age, warm and snuggly after their bath...
Ainsley-check out that hair!
and Bennett-trying to get that thumb in and I believe in the same towel as Ainsley was in.
This is something Harper loves to do just about every night- pretend to "sleep" in Ainsley's big bed. She likes to get in bed with Ainsley and we say our prayers and I turn the lights out, shut the door and then I give them about a minute to "sleep". Then I come in and she happily jumps into my arms to be taken back to her crib, well, Bennett's crib but I plan to have her out of that and Bennett in the crib in another month or so- stay tuned for that!
