Bathing Beauty

June 23, 2010 by Victoria Strong
Gwendolyn loves her bath. She gets so excited when we ask her if she's ready. It is definitely one of her favorite times of the day. She can move her arms and legs in the water. She gets to sing songs. She gets to play with her toys. And then when it is all finished, the artist arrives to coif her hair at "Daddy Hair Salon!" What more could a girl want? Oh, yeah, post-bath snuggles smile

(Here is a video with two clips of our bathing beauty filmed a year apart. She's grown quite a bit. Please excuse my really annoying Mommy voice. Note to self: Don't speak like that. Note to SMA parents: the sponge we use to support Gwendolyn's head in both clips is simply an infant bath sponge that can be purchased anywhere that sells newborn items.)

Talk About It

She is so sweet! LOVE that she can move in the water...how cool! Do you guys ever take her swimming? Just curious. Ahhh Gwendolyn....you always brighten my day!
