Last weekend we bathed the babies together for the first time. Arlo was three weeks old and hadn’t had a ‘proper’ bath in the tub and seeing as Athena was about to have a bath and he was happy and full of milk we decided to give it a go! So perhaps this was more than an ‘ordinary’ moment but I know that in the months to come a joint bath will very much be the norm for us so wanted to capture the first time on camera!
Athena is a boisterous bather (she’s a boisterous thing all the time really) so did give him a few splashes, but as Sam was around to keep her busy and a little distracted she was actually pretty good with him! He really loved it and calmed down once he felt the warm water on him, though didn’t stay in for as long as his sister!
Athena didn’t like him having a wash cloth hiding his modesty so kept whipping it off, so all the other photos have lots of baby bits on display, so are being kept for the family album only!
