Rub a dub dub...

I LOVE this boy in the TUB!


Harrison has always enjoyed Bath time. I don't think it's possible for him to enjoy his bath time more than I enjoy his bath time. It is definitely a highlight of the day : ) I remember giving Harrison his first bath in the NICCU. The nurse was so sweet, she got us all ready and put us in a little private room usually used for nursing and then left us so Ryan and I could have our own experience bathing our son for the first time. I was so grateful for her compassion and understanding. We didn't ask her to leave but she knew how special it would be for us to give Harrison his first bath. She warned us however that a lot of babies don't tolerate bath time too well. I thought to myself, if this little boy is anything like his mommy, he's going to love this! I wasn't worried and had no need to be. Harrison cooed with pleasure at the first touch of that warm sudsy washcloth. He has graduated from softly cooing to squealing with delight and splashing water all the way out of the bathroom (it's a small bathroom...but still!) He also loves discovering his toes beneath the bubbles, putting his rubber ducky's head in his mouth and chewing on his washcloth while I am trying to wash him with it causing a hilarious tug-o-war in which he usually wins!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from bathtime this week...

Sharlie-
Remember me from the group at Stacy's home? I was blog surfing tonight and came upon your sweet beautiful family. The baby has grown so much since I saw him at 3 months old. I think of you often so it was so good to "see" you tonight.

Love,

Stefany

So sweet! I love bath pictures! There is nothing sweeter then a clean, fresh baby. We finally moved Faith to the big tub a couple of months ago and she didn't like it at first but now she LOVES it! Harrison is growing up so fast, big boy!

He's so adorable... I love the bathtime pictures, it makes me sad cause it seems like yesterday when my daughter was that little and bathtime was always a new adventure. Now she loves singing in the shower! LOL... Harrison seems like an amazing little boy!
