Rub a dub dub

It is interesting how the girls' bath routine has evolved. We used to just throw all three of them into the tub, I would bathe them and then we would wrangle them into their jammies. As the tub became more crowded, they decided (well, Allie did) that they wanted to have individual bath time, which actually gives them a few minutes of alone time. And then there are some nights when two of them decide that they want a bath together.

We usually give the girls a bath every other night. If they have been to the beach or playing outside in the sandbox, we obviously do baths even if it isn't a scheduled bath night. The routine now is that I bathe Em and then help her into her jammies and comb her hair while Rich bathes Anna. And then I bathe Allie and help her with her jammies. Emily and Allie are in the middle of a very serious "Mommy do it" phase right now. Thankfully, Anna is not.

For some reason, all three decided to take a bath together last night so I had to run and grab my camera for some pictures. Unfortunately, Anna would not turn around for me and I was only able to snap off six or so pictures before Rich reminded me that it was bath time not photo shoot time.

Also, just wondering....did you change the comments to not accept anonymous commenters?

Ohhh, I LOVE bath photos!! The last one is AWESOME!!

Alice - Rich and I both had blond/dirty blond hair when we were young. The girls' hair is darker at the roots during the winter months.

And yes, I changed the comments. I originally had it that way but changed last year b/c there are people who don't have an account (or always forget their password!) but there are been too many people hiding behind anon as of late.

Those are awesome! I love bathtub pictures. I have been giving the girls a bath by myself for quite some time now, and I realized a week or so ago that I hadn't taken any bath pictures in a long, long time. I got a few cute shots last week, and I'm going to try to remember to do it more often. There's nothing like a smiling wet baby. :)

That last picture is awesome!

I love bath pictures. I have one of my 3 girls in the tub together hanging in my bathroom. It makes me smile every time I see it, especially now that they don't all fit anymore.

We still bathe the 2 little ones together and they still like bathing together, but they are starting to get too big. I am not looking forward to 3 individual baths. Actually, it's going to be 2 baths and a shower because my oldest "Doesn't like to sit in her own dirt".
