Week 17 | Splish Splash

Ari - Week 17

Ari has always seemed to love bath time, intrigued by the sensations and smells, and especially enjoying the loving massage Ania gives her as she puts on lotion afterward. She finds water pretty interesting too, and this week, she kicked it up a notch and started splashing! That prompted us to move the tub from the bathroom counter top between our sinks to inside the bathtub, so now she can splash with abandon. Either way, she always ends up clean and happy!

Ari really enjoys reading with Mommy! She genuinely seems interested, and pays attention very well.

She had a fun playdate with Cordelia, our neighbors' daughter, who is about 2 months older. Cordi gave Ari a warm welcome and showed her some love:
