bath time

The other day I decided it was high time for the babies to have a proper bath.  Harry had developed a habit of peeing in his own face and spitting up in Violet's, and I really did not feel that a damp washcloth was equal to the situation. 

Here's what I learned:

In order to successfully bathe two babies at once, at least one of the following elements must be present:
  • a second adult
  • sufficient head control on the part of the babies
  • ninja reflexes
Otherwise it's a bit harrowing.

The babies enjoyed it thoroughly.  I would have taken a picture if I hadn't been too busy clinging onto their slippery little selves for dear life.  Instead, we have a picture (taken by my mother, who arrived at my house at just the right moment) of them wrapped up in a towel after their bath.


That's Violet on the left, wearing her trademark expression of disdain, and Harry, looking like a tired alien.

So funny! She really does look as though she is staring at him in the most inconvenienced way.
