First (Home) Bath

I was very excited to finally be able to give Tyler his first real bath. I thought that it would help get him into somewhat of a schedule and get his nights and days on the right track. But it took awhile for us to actually get to give him his bath. After his umbilical stump finally fell off, we had to take him to the hospital over night (I'll explain later). Then after we got home from that, I got a bad infection and was pretty sick, so we had to wait until I got better from that. Then we finally got to give him his first bath! I don't know if it was a fluke or not, but that night he actually slept through the night. YAY!

He loved the first part of his bath. He just sat there soakin' in the warm water.

 I thought this pose was cute the way he has his hands on both sides of his face! I wish the flash wasn't so bright though!
  The second you start to wash him though, Look Out!! He HATES it for some reason. He'll cry the whole time until you get him out and hold him. Its sad.

 Then after you get him all lotioned up and dressed, he's a happy camper again!
The day after he got his first bath and slept through the night, he got circumcised and couldn't have another bath until the ring fell off. (Which ended up being a whole week later). After we could give him baths again, the sleeping through the night did not continue. It actually got worse. He would wake up like 3 times during the night and wouldn't want to go back to sleep. Hopefully that changes real soon! :)

Bathtime is just as much fun for the parents as it is for the baby, sometimes even more so! So glad he can have baths now!
