Wednesday, December 7


When it's bath time, we pull off all of Gwen's clothes and she runs around for a few minutes pretending to be cold even though it's nice and toasty upstairs in our house.

In this picture, she's saying "Brrrrr!" and clenching her teeth and faking a darn good shiver! She does this every time we mention the word "cold" or when she sees her bath towel or her coat. She's done this almost since the day we got her and it's pretty cute but it makes me wonder what bath time was like at her orphanage. Judging from how much she loves baths, I'd have to assume it was a happy time!

She's splashing like crazy and I had to stand on the other side of the bathroom to avoid the shower of water that was flying everywhere!

We soap her up and wash her hair and then we play with bath toys for about 15 minutes. She has a bunch of toys in the tub and she can identify all of them: The blue ball, the frog, the flower, the duck, the ladybug, the cup, and the fish.

Bed time is pretty easy.

Daddy comes home from work right around the time Gwen gets out of her bath so they play together for an hour or so. Then we make a bottle and Mommy takes her upstairs. After the bottle, she crawls into her crib and grabs her lovey and about 10 minutes later, she's fast asleep.

Then she wakes up at about 4:30 am and Mommy better be there - pronto - or she is one unhappy little munchkin! It's the only time she ever cries so I'm happy to be able to be there for her when she needs me. Her big brother didn't sleep through the night until he was 12 so it's not really a big deal that Gwen wakes me up and wants to snuggle. Usually we can both get back to sleep in just a few minutes. Gwenny always looks good but Momma needs her beauty sleep! :)

My kids did the 'BRRR' shiver dance before and after bath time too. It's adorable, isn't it?

Gwen sure looks like she's growing up too fast for words. She's a cutie for sure.
