First baths

We've technically had 2 first baths...first was the sponge bath and then was the real tub bath.  I'll cover them both in this post.

We tackled the first sponge bath 2 or 3 days after we came home...yes, you heard that right.  Chuck let our baby go 3 days without a bath (and that is assuming that she got bathed in the nursery...which is questionable).  I guess we were both putting it off because A) we had no clue what the heck we were doing and B) we didn't know how it would go. and truth be told, the first bath was a bit of a scream fest until we got to the hair part...turns out she is a bit of princess when it comes to the shampoo...she LOVES getting her hair watched
Miserable...and our half ass attempt at keeping her warm while we bathed
shampooing bliss
After the cord stump finally fell off, we broke out the super duper deluxe baby bath that was gifted to us.  we were really looking forward to the tub bath, but again it didn't turn out just the way we hoped.  SHE HATED IT.  I'm proud to say that we have made improvements, although we are still not 100% loving bath time...hopefully we will get there.

hating the bath
but regardless of the bathing experiences...she looks so dang cute in her hooded towels that I am committed to keep trying...just so I can see her in the towels (oh, and because personal hygiene is desirable trait..)
