Emmett and the Big Tub

Emmett outgrew his "Newborn-to-Toddler" tub months ago.� It's been practically impossible to keep the kid's bottom half completely submerged in the thing for a while; he kind of looks like a grown man riding a tricycle with his knees uncomfortably poking him in the face.� Now I know Emmett is somewhat of a long baby, but the "to-Toddler" part of that tub is just unrealistic.

But hey, 1) why would you need your toddler confined to a small plastic tub anyway and 2) who cares?� He absolutely loves the big tub, and now he has the perfect opportunity to play with all 5oo of his bath time squirt toys.

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B. (Hey, don't take my word for it.� Emmett will tell you all about it himself...)

Last Friday, James and I gave Em his very first real bath.� We're talking full-on baby (sans head, of course) water submersion.� None of that sponge bath nonsense.� Boy did he love it! � He was quite a content baby if I've ever seen one.� The nurses at the hospital told James and I that babies only need about one to two baths per week, but there's no harm in bathing them more frequently if they're a fan of it.� Considering Emmett is a fan, I think there are many more baths in his future.

Due to the risk of embarrassing future Emmett, I debated about whether to post bathtime pictures.� Sorry Em, but it was really too cute to pass up, so I've included an edited version (I compromised).� After all, what are parents for?� (Future Emmett will just be happy I didn't post the video ....)
