bath photos

i figured i better get some pictures of bryn in the bath before she gets too old.

it was a good thing too, because she is T-E-R-R-I-F-I-E-D of the bath now. you don't want to see what baths look like these days. kicking, screaming, clinging. and i can't figure out what the problem is - she'll play in the tub (we've tried a of couple different ones, and several new toys), but once i take her clothes off, she won't go anywhere near it, water or no water. we also tried the shower, which is slightly better because at least her objective there is to cling to me rather than to get away. but the sheer terror is not lessened, nor is the anguished crying. i've even started giving her baby doll baths, so bryn can help and see that the bath is fun and not life-threatening. but still no progress.

my last hold-out is actually getting in a bath with her, but that just seems like a whole can of worms that i'm not ready to open yet.
