Fun in the tub!

Max and I started the day off by going to the gym... yeah me!! Then my precious little man took an hour long nap, in his BED! I was able to take a shower in peace, get ready and do the dishes before he woke up. He had a PT appointment this afternoon and once again Michelle said "he looks amazing!" He is SO close to rolling from his back to his tummy, he can already go tummy to back but only does it when he feels like it (sounds like his daddy!) He was able to sit on his own for almost 10 seconds. That is a pretty long time and he was even straight up, because as soon as he isn't straight up he loses his balance completely. He is also really interested in putting things in his mouth and grabbing at toys. I don't realize it day to day but it has been 2 weeks since his last therapy appt and he really is doing a lot of new things!!

Well, I don't have any new pics so I decided to do a "timeline of bathtime"

From his first spongebath ever... 10 days old

First time I saw him without any tubes, for a brief moment anyway... 2 1/2 weeks old

To his first tub bath... 3 1/2 weeks old

Not the first tub bath, but I LOVE his face in this one... to me it says "mom, quit taking pictures of me when I'm in the bathtub!" ...5 weeks old

You can really get a good idea of his size. By the way his "bathtub" is a plastic bin approx 12" x 18"

First bath at home... 11 1/2 weeks old

Just a few weeks ago, he's getting too big for his tub now! ...7 months old!

He's so funny now in the bathtub, he loves to kick his feet around and splash us. I think I get just as much water on me during his bath as he does! He hates to get out, he doesn't like to be cold or get lotion put on. Again, he takes after his dad so much. Clark thinks lotion is "disgusting" - except when his hands were very dry from the multiple daily scrub ins in the NICU! Then, and only then, it was ok!

I missed about 6 weeks there where I didn't take any bathtime pictures. Sorry Max!

Good Night!
