Impromptu Bath

Ellie got really, really dirty today crawling around on the deck. The tops of her feet and every piece of exposed skin got dirty - sand, slurpee juice, cheezie dust, and just general grime. I took her to the bathroom to get a facecloth to wash her face and hands and ended up stripping her down and sitting her in the sink full of water for a bath. She's a bit big for this type of bath, but it's all I felt like getting involved in in the middle of the afternoon. She loved it and the bathroom got a splash cleaning in the process!

I love the reflection of her head in the mirror - it shows such vulnerability and sweet babyness. Look how dirty that water is. Hard to believe a baby can get so dirty in a few hours of play.

What precious photos! I like the reflection too! (sweet little almost bald head!) She sure does look clean and sparkling.
