The one with the bath pictures. Alternately titled: Obsessed with Black & Whites.

We love bath time. As in, it's the best time of the day around here. You know this already since I blab my mouth about it's awesomeness all the time. And the sweet husband who eagerly does this nightly job with a hop in his step. 



But, it's getting better as she's getting older. We have a little thing. Where I get her undressed, diaper & all, and Declan's in there running the bath. As soon as I sit her nudey-butt on the ground, she ferociously speed crawls out to the hallway and around the corner to the bathroom. Her little hands slap against the bathroom floor with gusto & excitement. 


When she finally reaches the tub, she stands up and lifts her leg as if she even stands a chance of getting in herself. She's too short. She doesn't stand a chance. But it's cute. It's so dang cute.


Then? She plays. Splashes. Gets scrub-a-dubbed by daddy. Strings together a series of sounds & cute noises that make us love her all the more. And then? It's my turn. I scoop her up with the hooded towel. Get her warm and cozy.


if this look of sheer-glee doesn't show how much she loves her daddy
I don't know what will....
Dry her. Powder. Lotion. Pajama her booty. She proclaims multiples times that it's "nigh-nigh"...gets a bedtime snack & da-da cuddle.... 


and just like that she's off to bed.

Happy Wednesday!

  2. oh these pictures are so so so cute! I really need to take some pictures of bath time. I have so many of Alex and not much of Avin.

    Love her in these black and white pictures. They would be perfect to frame in your bathroom :)

  13. Awww...how sweet! I'm a little bit jealous--I miss the fun bath times. As of late, our night-time routine is just one huge screaming battle :(

  14. Gorgeous photos. Bathtime is SO identical around here. She gets naked around 6:30 and gets to play like that for a while. Then I say "Want to go have your bath?" and she laughs. I love it when she does that. E does her bathtime always if he's home. And then I get her out, do the PJs and put her to bed. It's so much fun now that she's started to sit up in the tub and be able to really play and splash. Although not so fun when every 30 seconds she is trying to stand her booty up.

  25. Love the black and whites! Bath time is the best. Mia has just started not liking the end of bath time, aka when Mom takes her out, but thanks to Daddy for a quick cheer up to forget all about bad Mommy for actually taking her pruney toes and fingers out of the water!
    Nothing better than a fresh babe off to bed!

  27. Isn't bedtime the sweetest. I'm working a weird shift this week, so I've been at work all day. My sweet mother in-law let me sleep in this morning, so my little man was napping when I woke up and had to leave. I was supposed to get off in an hour, but saved my break til the end of the day so I could sneak home and put him to bed. I couldn't resist a chance to see his sweet face and was getting sad because I hadn't seen him all day. I love those last snuggles before he lays his sweet head down.

    I wish I could take pics like this!

    Is Emeline working on some top teeth? Looks like you can see them a bit.

    EmeKay is just sooo adorably cute!!!

  30. How sweet! I just love when they are basically "asking" to go to bed. Not because I am ready for a break, but just because it makes me feel like I am doing something right! That might sound weird! ha

  31. so sweet! Your night time routine sounds a lot like ours

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my word!! She has got to be the cutest thing EVER!

  33. If there's something cuter in this world than baby bathtime pictures, I don't know what it is. Ya'lls routine sounds a lot like ours. Bathtime is Daddy/daughter time and they love it. But he gets her dressed and all too while I do the night time rocking. Such a special time. All three of us love it!

    That picture of her in the towel?? So cute my ovaries just jumped out onto the keyboard.
