a baby in a bath

going to be playing catch up for a little...

are you kidding me?  I die!  Freshly bathed and all wrapped up in his bunny towel from Eujean, Micheal and Sarah!

Everett seems to have mixed emotions about his bath.
Some days he really likes it, one time he even fell asleep in the bath, 
and other days he screams bloody murder until we get him out of there!

I know that in the states they say to only sponge bath until their cord falls off
but in Canada they do things different, and they get their first full-on bath the very day they are born
and as many as you want to give after that!

So that first night, my mom came up to the hospital and gave Everett his first bath.
It was really cute, and she knew all the tricks to teach me.
Like how to hold thier feet when getting them out so they could never slip out of your hands
and to have a warm towel in the dryer waiting for them when they get out.

Even though sometimes he does his screamo while bathing 
I love bathing him, 
mostly because I love smelling him after.
It is like my drug.
Really though, is there anything better than the smell of freshly bathed baby sleeping on your chest?
Intoxicating.

His first bath:


And some since then:

Oh my goodness he is absolutely precious! We bathed Holland right after bringing her home and before her cord fell off. My mom did it with all of her kids so even though they do tell you not to in the states we totally did. Giving babies baths is the best! Holland actually preferred showers though so that's what we would usually do with her! Haha. Anyway, he is just perfect! Congratulations again!!
