Bath Time

So last night Lilly had her first bath. It was... an adventure! All this week I've been trying to find time to give her a bath, but we just hadn't yet. I was so excited to do it because I was so sure that she would love the warm water. We even got this special infant bath support thing that soaks up the warm water so that the baby doesn't get cold. Steve and I got everything ready... It took us 10 minutes to decide which towel we should use and if we were going to just put her in her pj's right away or if we were going to put her in her robe... we got all the baby wash and lotion ready, Steve drew the tub, I got her undressed and ready to get in....
We were SO excited... I carried her into the bathroom and I was almost shaking with excitement cause I KNEW she would love it. I carefully lowered her into the tub and the moment her naked bum touched the wet blue bath support, she screamed at the top of her lungs!!! She WAILED the entire time she was in that bath tub!!

No matter what we did she did NOT like this bath thing! I don't know if she was just scared, or cold, or if she really didn't like it... but she screamed the entire time! We hurried and washed her up and got her out of there as soon as we could. Suddenly we didn't care what towel she was in... and the thought of putting her in her robe was way out of the picture! We rolled her up in her cute white towel (which she pooped in right away!) and she calmed down a little. Then she just stared at me and Steve like... "What the heck did you guys do to me!"
She had this look on her face for like, 10 minutes straight! We felt so bad!! But after all was said and done and dry, and no longer in a poopy towel, she was just as sweet and soft and snuggly as ever!

She is absolutely adorable. One thing I tried with Mark, the first couple of times in the tub, I was in there with him, and I tried nursing him. I don't know if you are or not, but its worth a shot. If you do try to do this, make sure Steve is nearby to take her from you when she is done. Getting out of the tub with a slippery baby is hard.

My daughter hates baths! Only lately does she not cry the whole time (she's 5 months old!). And the pooping in the towel thing cracked me up because my baby always pees when we take her out of the tub, so she gets a diaper before she's dried off. Lilly is adorable! Is she still sleeping well? I hope that's not just a newborn thing that will wear off because sleep is the most important thing!
