A Pictorial Journey through bathtime

On most days, you might hear screaming and thrashing coming from my house. No one is being hurt, it is just Addison's bath time. Because of this and the fact that we are supposed to keep her relatively calm because of her pulmonary hypertension, her baths are probably fewer than we would like. However, when we went in to her nursery for her 6am feeding this morning, it was discovered that sometime during the night, she had thrown up over to her left side, splattering the bumper pad and creating a tiny lake of throw-up that her head and neck proceeded to rest in the remainder of the night. All of this to say- the first order of business this morning was a bath. I have arranged pictures depicting this particular bath time hoping to get inside Addison's head and figure out why she hates bath time so much. So here goes.


OK, I am glad to be taken out of the wet clothes, but I am not quite sure what is coming next. Hopefully whatever it is, it involves food.



Still waiting on that food, mom.....


Wait a second, something is not right here....
I HAVE BEEN TRICKED!!!!! I will now proceed to voice my displeasure in a very vocal manner.

Wait...when do I get to use that awesome big tub?...not only was I tricked into taking a bath, I am also being gypped by having to use this little tub instead....

All, right, the torture seems to be over, but I am still pretty suspicious

Things are looking up...out of my wet clothes, freshly bathed and in this cute new outfit....

Excellent...this is all I wanted all along...

A little sitting up practice....working so hard....

After all of this torture, and you still expect me to take a morning nap? Funny, mom...

  1. Addison is such a cutie. We're enjoying your blog!
    Katie hated a bath, too. What I discovered after many torturous events was that she likes her bath at that snugly-warm temperature that they warn you and scare you to death about using with a baby. Michael likes a lukewarm bath, and Katie likes hers a bit steamy.

  2. When does Addison get to wear her Carhart and S&D line of clothing?

  3. I think Carharat only runs down to 6 months...so a few more months there. What sort of infant wear does S&D have to offer?

  4. Isn't it good we don't remember being babies. Throwing up on yourself, going to the bathroom on yourself....

  5. When I bathe the babies at work, I use a pretty steamy temperature because it always cool down so fast! Maybe that will help.
