Bath Time...

I still have the older kids get into the bath together. They love it (especially since they usually do showers), and I know the days of being able to do so are numbered - they are growing up way too fast.

Thus, when Baby Sister (aka Honey Bear or Baby Bee - we're still working out her nickname) was ready for her first bath, the kids insisted she get in with them or as they said, "We can give her the first bath. No really, Mom. Please, please, please..." Of course, I was too scared to just put her in the bath tub, even if she had her mesh holder to keep her upright. So, I had to get in, too. By the way, Baby's umbilical stump fell off around day 7 or 8 but she had a granuloma at the umbilical site so I had to wait until it was removed and the area healed for her to be able to have that first bath. 

At first, she looked like she was about to cry. Then she realized the water was warm and comfortable. After that she stretched out and had a grand time. I will post more photos of her and her first bath on her blog site - I created a very simple blog for her and her photos. For now, here are a few of my favorite photos from this first bath experience with all the kids in the tub. 

I had to get one of the feet - they are my favorite features on my kids. And I LOVE baby feet. I think I've mentioned my kids newborn foot prints are all framed in the house. I think I have as many framed feet as I do regular photos. I don't put up that many photos in the house. The last photo is of my clean, clean baby in her nightgown given her by her Nana. She smelled so wonderful after her bath and massage with Burt's Bees lotion. Now we have three hooded towels hanging in the bathroom.

they are all so adorable! Love the feet! And what a great idea for storing towels! I will have to try that on my glass shower!
