Splish splash

In true Bean fashion, it's been a bit difficult to transition him out of his infant bathtub. This is not a kid who likes change, and as he's too young to understand a bribe, I just try to be gentle with him. Even though his little head and feet stuck out of the ends of the baby tub for a couple of months now, he was determined not to graduate to the big scary one that mommy never uses anymore but hopes to one day again before she dies. A while back, I purchased an inflatable ducky for him to bathe in (it even quacks!), but he screamed bloody murder when I put him in. I suppose I don't blame him.

But... we had a breakthrough yesterday! He discovered the absolute joy of splashing water all over the place, plus he realized that getting your hair washed was not excruciatingly painful. We had an entire bath without tears. Maybe he felt more comfortable with the dog serving as lifeguard, who knows. As proof of this miracle, I can finally offer you the obligatory cute baby bath pictures.

So many posts from you lately, I LOVE it (and you are putting me to shame ;) )

I LOVE Bean in the bathtub, enjoy this time now b/c once he learns to be mobile you'll spend all your time trying to keep him from climbing out of the tub!!

SOooo cute! I love the smiling shampoo head pics. And that duck is hillarious! He needs to come over and take a bath with Zach...he will show him the ways of enjoying the big tub. But as Mary said, beware, then they want to crawl, stand, and scoot in the tub and that's not fun for Mommy! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Thanks Kristina! I got it at Babies R Us... where they know just how to sucker new parents into buying crap that really isn't necessary (but dang it's cute!).

I'm in love with his expression in the 3rd picture. He seemed a little unsure at that point but obviously he warmed up to it by the end!
