Elliott’s first bath

So, Monday morning we had to go back to the pediatrician because E is still having some eye goop as a result of blocked tear ducts. This was my first trip alone with the baby and my first time driving after giving birth. I was nervous, but the worst thing that happened on the trip was that my darling son hosed himself down while I was changing his diaper on the exam room table while we were waiting for the doctor. I tried my best to clean him off, but he was drenched. Even his hair was dripping. Yuck!

So, Monday evening it was time for Elliott’s first bath. We opted to stick with the sponge bath, even though the bulk of his cord stump fell off late last week, because he still has some scabs in his navel. Dad held E in a towel over the sink, and Mama did the washing. As anticipated, E much preferred his pee shower and screamed most of the time, but we all survived, and he emerged all cute, squeaky clean and puffy haired.

    Elliott you look very cute and clean and you seem to have triumphed your first bath. Daddy looks like he deserves a sticker too! :)
