Splish, splash, Summer's takin' a bath!!

Now that Summer's Broviac (IV) is gone (you can see the stitches and steri-strips on her right side), she is water proof! It's amazing what little things we take for granted....like being able to take a "real" bath. Up to this point, Summer has gotten a sponge bath just about every day in her bed. She hasn't really liked it much since she has to be hanging out, cold, and wet.
Yesterday I gave her a small dip in the baby bathtub we have been using with the hammock in it. This tub, is, of course, made for a much smaller baby...but, since Summer doesn't sit up on her own, this was a good option to keep her from being immersed. I took the hammock out and set her in it....it was much too small, but we made it work.
Today I climbed up in the attic and brought down the bigger baby bathtub we have had for years. Our other kids have all been so big at a young age that we had to search for this tub. One of our sons was 20 pounds by the time he was 6 months old! Thankfully, Summer, at just over 20 pounds, fits just perfect in it :) She stayed in the tub until nice and pruney, kicking, splashing, and giggling. I think it's safe to say, she likes the water :) Morgan even climbed in beside her....it usually takes a force of nature to get her in the tub! I'm sure Summer would agree with me if she could....I love having one more bit of "normal" added to her life :)
Oops....water got in her eye...

...all better now!

Yay!, but what is this stuff?

Summer wasn't so sure she should put her feet and hands in it...

2nd try....she loves this deeper tub :)
