What better way to welcome in the new year...

than to get naked and take a bath! Looking to get the new year off to a good start, we partook in a guaranteed good time for Gilbert. Of course, it is fun for us as well. His balance in his tub has improved dramatically and he's learned how to stay upright by stabilizing his body by placing his elbows and forearms against the sides of the tub. I knew he was a prodigy!

Turns out the bath was the highlight of the day as the rest of it went downhill from there. The little man had a bad bout of rumble-stumble belly and he let it be known he was unhappy. Helpless to sooth him beyond a comforting song or embrace, this lasted most of the afternoon.

By nighttime he calmed down, but continued to let us know his discourse. His cries were more like audible pouts just to let us know he is pissed.

I have a hard time not laughing when he does this, because the face is funny as he sticks out his bottom lip and gives his "Waaa" - long pause - "Waaa". I equate it to a 'hear me roar and I will not be ignored' cry.
He's not doing it in this picture, but his discontent is easily recognizable!
