Bath time triumph

Our first attempt at giving all 3 girls a bath in the tub recently was nothing less than a total disaster.  Just picture 3 naked babies screaming and scrambling to crawl out of a tub at once, and you have the idea.

After some coaxing and several tries at bath time, we've turned a major corner.  Last night, everyone had a screeching, squealing, splashing good time.   Maya had a meltdown when we took her out to get dried off.

Some video evidence of the fun:

I should have posted earlier, but our little peanuts had their 15 month check-up recently.  I was really hoping somebody would crack 20 pounds, but sadly not.

Hannah- 19 pounds, 7 ounces; 30 inches
Fiona- 17 pounds, 8 ounces; 29.5 inches
Maya- 17 pounds, 8 ounces; 29 inches

Thankfully, they all got the nasty stomach bug that swept through our house right after the check-up, otherwise they would have weighed even less.  The nurse's advice: pork up the girls with regular chocolate frappes.  As if I needed an additional excuse to have ice cream in the house!
