Tub time!

For some reason, I've still been bathing Charlie and Lily in a reclined position in their tub. I guess it was just habit, plus it was nice and easy to wash their hair that way. But tonight I figured it was time for them to graduate to sitting in the bath tub instead. It wasn't as easy to keep the shampoo out of their eyes, but they liked the new perspective, and the ability to splash and play with toys.

"Um, Mommy. I think you're doing my bath wrong..."
"Okay, never mind, I like it this way!"
Lily had no problem with the adjustment! (Can you believe how BIG she looks in that tub?!?)
Aunt Jill visited this evening and read Charlie and Lily stories while the other was getting their bath. Lily thought that "Hippos Go Berserk" was delicious.
Earlier today Charlie and Lily had a visit from their pal Danny. Charlie and Lily enjoyed playing with Danny, and tried to pick up some tips on crawling from him, since Danny motored all over the house. "I think Danny did it like this..."
Even though Charlie and Lily's birthday is still 11 days away, they've already started getting presents. They enjoyed opening these adorable Little People play sets from Joe's friend Lisa. Thanks, Lisa!
Lily liked modeling the wrapping. Big bows are all the rage.

Yes they both look so big and grown up in their bath tubs. And they grow so quickly which is why every second is so precious. I love the one where Charlie's hair is all spiked with the shampoo - I remember doing that with the kids - it's adorable. I can't wait to see you pumpkins...

All My Love, Auntie :) xoxoxox
