One of the challenges of keeping Emily on her sleep schedule is getting through late evenings, when she is usually at her crankiest. Consequently, we employ any and all tricks available to keep her awake and entertained until that magical bedtime, when she hopefully sleeps through the night (knock on wood). One of these tricks is a bath, which it turns out she needs from time to time anyway. Ever since we adjusted her bath water temperatures from the frigid paranoid-about-burns level to pleasantly warm, Emily has tolerated and even enjoyed her baths at times. She at least seems interested in the funny feeling of the water, and will probably enjoy baths even more when she learns how to play with the water.
