The babies had their first "big kid" baths last night. Truthfully, they were baby baths in the big bathtub - without me in there with them. They kicked and played - so much fun. It worked out just fine. I was only brave enough to do one at a time of course - they can't sit up on their own just yet so they need full individual attention. But, we're just about ready for the swimming pool I'd say!
Mary Louise actually out grew the bathroom sink quite a few weeks ago - but I kept bathing her in it for the convenience - and I was a little nervous about trying the big tub. I don't have a baby bathtub, though after months of not wanting one, I may bite the bullet and get the over-sized - ridiculous to store hunk of plastic as these little ones will be little for quite some time. I'm just not sure what else to do.
Anyhow, things went well. We had our usual massage time afterward and the babies seemed to enjoy the whole experience.

After a couple of good nights with some nice 4 hour sleep blocks, both of our little guys decided it was time for a train wreck. We have therefore been up since the ripe old time of 3am bouncing, babbling, cooing - at least they smile pretty often - it's not all screaming. But they may be having another big growth spurt as they both suddenly couldn't put the bottle down!
Anyhow, growing is good if that's what they're doing. But, if this post doesn't make any sense at all, there's my big excuse.
Have a good weekend!
