Bubble Baby Boy.

27 Jan

Isn’t it some type of childhood prerequisite that at some point (when kids are still young enough that it’s not creepy to take naked pictures of them) your parents push your wet, soapy hair up into a faux-hawk and then take a picture of you?

I thought so.

Henry was particularly entertaining during his bath time the other night, and I just had to capture his goofy personality-and my stellar attempt at giving him his very first faux-hawk.

If nothing else-I hope these pictures give you a small glimpse into how happy Henry is during bath time.  He is a splish-splashin’, rubber ducky lovin’, water baby.  And it makes me all kinds of excited for warmer weather and trips to the pool to hurry up and get here!

I think it’s safe to say we’ve come a LONG WAY from his very first encounter with the big-boy-bathtub…remember?

Ok-be honest-did you actually click on the link above and watch the video from when we gave Henry his first real bath? He was ten days old.  I have to tell you-when I was re-watching the video the other night, it literally rocked my world.  Was he that small? Really?

And Daddy Perks walked over as he heard the cries of his firstborn coming from the computer-and we both teared up. Partially because the sight of Henry screaming so uncontrollably is still a little bit heartbreaking, (even 17 months later) but mostly because our baby is not so baby-ish anymore.

Let’s all promise to have this much fun the next time we bathe, deal?

    I think bath pictures are some of the best pictures that we can get of our kiddos during the toddler years b/c they can’t go anywhere (captive audience) and there are so many creative hair options:). Henry is getting sooo big and everyone keeps telling me how big your first will look when your second arrives. But that’s okay. He has to get big enough to be the BIG brother, right?

    I especially love where Henry’s hand is situated in the last picture! That’s pretty much where Tucker’s is for the majority of his bath lol! Great pics!
    (Oh, and does that thing that you use to rinse his hair really work for keeping water outta the eyes?)

    Oh Tiff! I debated whether or not to put that picture in the post because of that strategically placed hand 🙂 But-yes…boys will be boys 🙂 And chances are-this won’t be the last time you and I are commiserating about our boys putting their hands where they shouldn’t be! And as for the keep-the-water-out-of-his-eyes-hair-rinsing-thingy…not sure because we always just dump the water right on Henry’s head 🙂 We’re cruel like that!

    The keep the water out of your eyes thing is OUR FAVORITE BATHTIME ITEM. It’s my go to purchase for everyone at a babyshower. Jack is obsessed with his “fellow” during bathtime too. Boys will be boys right?
