Baby Bath Bucket (Paddy's First Bath)

We gave Paddy his first bath last weekend.  It was a new experience for everyone involved...

... Because we used something called the Tummy Tub.  I got this baby bather after some friends who had their babies in the Netherlands insisted that this is THE tub to use.  Unlike the regular baby bathers, your tot is completely submerged in the bath water, so their tummies and chests don't get cold.  We actually got it when we were in Houston last Thanksgiving, so this bather is everywhere.  

So here he is in the Tummy Tub.  He looks petrified, right?  He really wasn't, though.  Contrary to this mug, he actually liked it!  No tears involved!  When we bathed him today it actually got him to stop crying.  He just kind of floats around in the bucket while you secure his head.  

Big sis helped out too.  As you can see we are really losing the war here.  Claudia still insists on parading around with no clothes on.  She's been out of school for a couple of weeks and goes back tomorrow.  I think the chilly temps will convince her that clothes are the way to go.   

So there  you have it.

Splish, splash!  Paddy's first bath!
