Alice is such a funny little girl.  I was washing some dishes the other day when she decided she wanted to splash in the water.  I emptied the dirty water and put some clean water in for her then picked her up to sit at the side of the sink - thinking she was going to put her hands in and splash around. Oh no ;o)  she started putting her feet in! A bit of quick thinking and her trousers and sleeves were pulled up to be on the safe side. 

 It all started off quite gently but it didn't take long before the splashing became a lot more energetic.
 These photos don't do it any justice as they were all taken soon after she went in to splash. After a short time I had to put down my camera and be ready to steady or catch if required because Alice was standing up and having a great time.

 Slowly the clothes were stripped off as they became wet, first the trousers and top, then the vest and finally the nappy! She had us in stitches as she splashed and soaked us - the sponge became her shower and was held above her head and the water squeezed over her hair.
 Even Megan found Alice's antics amusing :)

 In the end I'd had to take her out because she was cold, her feet and hands were like prunes and she was covered in goosebumps. Fortunately after being towelled dry we could put her in her pyjamas and get her warmed up again.

I wish I'd had a video camera to hand, it would have made a great little film for when she's older.
