OK I'm going to brag on Brad again. This time, about how CLEVER he is! Mollie has an ingrown toenail, which we are supposed to treat with warm water soaks and neosporin. We were trying to figure out a way to have her soak her foot without her being submerged in water, so we didn't have to attempt to hold her still in our laps or stand right beside her in the tub for 10-15 minutes, 2-3 times a day. When I got home from work Thursday, I found Mollie jumping in the jumperoo with her feet in . . . her baby bathtub, filled with warm water! How awesome is that? Brad then further improved on his own idea by using a bucket with just enough water to cover her feet - that way she can jump and kick all she wants, but she can't tip over the container and we don't have to use nearly as much water. Genius! Even our pediatrician was impressed with the idea! :)

By the way, Mollie's toe is doing AWESOME! It's almost completely healed, and the doctor says that the great majority of babies who have really curved nailbeds like Mollie's flatten out and they don't have recurring problems. Yay!
