Duck Tub

Avery is always asking me to let Addison take a bath with her. Yes, we are still using that infant sink tub. AJ (as she is called by her daddy) is almost sitting up all by herself, unless she moves slightly and then she does a nose dive. Anxious for them to be able to take a bath together and cut down on time, I finally gave in to Avery and placed Addison in the "duck tub" in the bathtub with her. I forget how slippery little babies can be. I placed her in the corner and the second her back got wet she began slipping completely down into the water. So, I'm holding her up with one hand and trying to bath her with the other, while my 4 year old is squished in a 2x2 area of bathtub with her back and head in the water and her legs hanging out over the side. Avery thought that this was so much fun and quickly realized that she had a bathtime playmate to entertain. She began throwing the rubber duck into the air to make Addison laugh. She couldn't take her eyes off of the flying duck! Of course, Addison loved the new experience and enjoyed watching the Avery show. Needless to say, we are back to the infant tub until little AJ aces the sitting test.

How cute! My girls love bathing together too and it is actually easier, I think! They think it is a swim fest, especially when there are bubbles!

How funny!! I wondered how the duck tubs worked out. Ella didn't bathe in the real tub for a long time because she still fit her baby tub.
