Hubby improvised a bath for Ayla this evening and it worked a treat!

This house has no bath ( yet, just wait ’til the renos are finished!) so since outgrowing her baby bath Ayla has had to have showers.

Occasionally I’ve blocked the shower drain with a face washer or my foot to try and give Ayla some water to splash in, but this evening Hubby used a nonslip bath mat and voila! Instant bath.

Ayla sat in the “bath” for ages. I put bubbles in and gave her some extra toys and Ayla played and splashed for well over half an hour.

Ayla also learned that bath bubbles make noise, so she started rubbing them into her ears and then giggling at the sound of the popping and crackling.

It was cute, fun and a definite redo; Ayla loved it and mummy and daddy get some time to sit and chat and watch our beautiful little munchkin learn and play.

Bathroom sink

Wednesday 18 September 2013: One Hundred and Seventy Days Old

We’ve discovered that Ayla fits quite comfortably in our bathroom sink.

It’s a handy discovery because we have virtually no water pressure in the shower, no bathtub in the house and the baby bath is now too small and too awkward.

So until now bath time for Ayla has been less than ideal, more so for us than her.

Lately we’ve even taken to showering in our outdoor/poolside shower. It only has a cold setting but now that the weather’s warmer it’s actually a good option.

Except that we have two high-set houses across the street from us which both have balconies in clear view of our “bush squirt”.

So this is why the bathroom sink is a welcome variation… Not to mention that its handy for keeping Ayla secure while I’m putting on my face and doing my hair!
