Jace hasn’t quite decided if he likes bath time or not…. He definitely does NOT like the first jump into the water. He definitely DOES like to have his hair washed. As for everything else, he’s still unsure. He goes from happy to angry and back to happy surprisingly quickly. The two pictures below were taken 3 seconds apart.
And yes, we give our son a bath in a mixing bowl. Don’t judge. We have a cool bather thing to use when he gets a little bigger, though! And while we’re in a non-judgmental mindset, check out this next picture….
Completely adorable, right? The giraffe is a “WubbaNub” – a stuffed animal with a pacifier attached. It helps Jace keep the pacifier in his mouth because the stuffed animal is less likely to fly across the crib when he sneezes.
But if you zoom out on this super cute picture, you’ll see this: Yes, Jace is half-dressed, laying on his changing pad, on the floor in the middle of the room. He was crying. And crying. And I changed him and he got so happy and calm! I started to re-snap his outfit and he looked like he was going to start crying again, so I stopped. I didn’t want to leave him on the changing table because it’s about 3 feet off the ground, but I definitely didn’t want to disturb him. So I picked up the whole changing pad and moved him to the ground. And it worked like a charm for a solid 45 minutes. Totally worth it! He’s in a clean diaper, with socks on, and I made sure Cuervo didn’t step on him, so it really was semi-responsible parenting, I think.
