As one could notice in previous posts, my baby whale can be a lot of fun when I take a bath. Here is a new set of activities that benefit from the presence of my baby whale. Besides filling it up with water and splashing the water around, you may notice a couple of unusual activities. For example, with a little bit of courage you can water board yourself and with a little bit of special skills you can jiggle the baby whale on your foot.
There have been a couple of posts about taking baths recently, but they are far from providing the whole picture. When a decision is made that I would take a bath, water starts running into my whale. This is the point when I hold one of my toys (a duck) under the water to measure the temperature. I also learned how to scoop and pour water with my baby whale.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote that I was still figuring out how to play with sqeeze toys. Today I solved part of the mystery. I figured that air bubbles get out when you put the toy under water, then water flows out when you raise the toy up. I even helped mommy to get my hair wet before she putS shampoo on it.
When my parents ask me whether I would like to take a bath or not, I run to the bathroom and I point to my whale saying “bath”. Taking baths is pretty exciting because I can play with a completely different set of toys. I have several toys that you can squeeze after you fill them up with water. My mommy washes me while I am trying to figure out how these things work (it’s a little complicated). I am not a big fan of her washing my hair because all that water poured on top of my head interferes with my activities. But the thing that really annoys me (sometimes) is that my parents take me out of the water in the middle of something really important.
I have a big blue whale that my parents fill up with warm water to bathe me. Daddy uses a smaller orange baby-whale as a toy to pour water on me. The small whale has a few holes that allow the water to fall in tiny streams. I was always intrigued by the streams breaking up into water droplets and I use every opportunity I have to study them very closely. The phenomenon will require further investigation until I come up with a law describing this process.
