I am happy to report, the girls are no longer afraid to take baths. This is HUGE news in our house, since for months they would throw major fits and sob through the quick washings. They are now asking, well, mostly Claire, to take baths every single day. We have been taking double the amount of baths, since they beg for them and they usually end up spending a good chunk of the morning in the water playing.
For even bigger news, Claire the last two times she has been in the tub, has told me she needed to poop. We quickly get her out of the tub, she does her thing, then hops back in the tub. So much better then having floaters in the bath.
Lillian is still a little timid in the tub, but warming up. It is so wonderful being able to let them play and have fun for 20 minutes or so in the water. Of course, my bathroom is soaked after, but all worth it.
