First Bath

Bella FINALLY was able to take her first bath! It took longer than I recall for her umbilical cord to fall off. I couldn't wait to give her a bath. 18 days old with no bath was starting to really yuck me out! But then again I am guilty of over-bathing my kids. They bathe every day. Sometimes twice. Amber had some major dry skin-which was inflicted by me. Anyway, Bella really enjoyed her first bath. I remember Alex and Amber cried and screamed. Bella just chilled out. Even when Alex squeezed the wash cloth over her face! She's a great baby-and now she's so fresh and so clean.

Cute! Christian set a record for the cord, 5 weeks!! Even the Dr. said "umm that's not normal" :)

She sure looks like she is looking to throw her fist as someone in the first picture!!! Maybe she was just quietly plotting. :)

She is so so sweet!!!

So stinkin' cute....

If Bella gets dry skin you can always just send her over to our house where children get maaaaaaaybe one bath a week (Maybe!).
Course, we have just added our first girl so maybe we'll bathe more often now.
