Well today was a great day for water confidence development.
I have been taking Bird in the shower with me/her sister every now and then and she has been getting gradually better. She is happy to put her hands and feet in every time now, and doesn’t get too bothered if some water sprays in her general direction. She happily washes herself.
Today though, was something else. I suggested as usual that she put her hands in the water, which she did, giggling madly because it tickled. Then I gave her the wash-plume and some body wash, she washed herself, then went to the shower spray and stood happily letting it spray her tummy and chest! This is huge progress! She then turned around and let it spray her shoulders and back! And what’s more, she was smiling and laughing the whole time. I was astounded and so pleased!
It’s been only four weeks, and I am so amazed by how far she has come in such a short space of time now that I am not stressing about it all the time.
