When Andrew's father heard that we were naming our daughter "Sonia", he replied, "Like the duck in 'Peter and the Wolf'"?
And so, our love of duck baby stuff began. There is no shortage of adorable ducky products & clothes available for children, so we have purchased and received (as gifts) a good number of ducky-related items. So much fun! I am very scatterbrained these days, so I don't have pictures of all of this fun ducky gear, but the other day, I did take a few pictures of Sonia's ducky bath stuff.
Theoretically, I should have waited until Sonia can "sit up unassisted" to use this inflatable ducky bathtub that the lovely Joslyne and Zoey sent to Sonia, but I just couldn't! Yes, it took effort on my part to keep Sonia sitting upright (she kept wanting to straighten her body out and slide down deeper into the water), but we had a very fun bath, and Sonia seemed to enjoy it a lot. Thanks to Joslyne & Zoey for this hilariously awesome tub!! When Sonia took her first bath in it the other day, I was the solo bath-giver, so I wasn't able to take any pictures during the bath. So, just pretend that Sonia is in the buff in this picture:
The ducky bath tub fits nicely within a normal tub, so it's a cushy way to introduce your baby to the big bathtub without the annoyances of trying to keep her from bonking her head on the sides of the tub. The tail is angled, so she was able to lean back against it. The bottom of the tub is non-slip, but that doesn't help when Sonia does her 2x4 impression (which apparently she inherited from her father-- he used to pull that trick when he was little!).
I love that the duck tub has a suction cup attached so you can hang the duck up out of the way!
Andrew bought this plush duck bath toy for Sonia when she was just two weeks old. It quacks!
I bought this duck towel for Sonia right after she was born.
Here's a really old picture of her all wrapped up in the ducky towel.... She looks highly suspicious!
I just realized that I failed to get a picture of the cute little ducky washcloth that we used during the bath, but I think you get the general idea....
