Scrub-a-Dub

The life with kids is always full of firsts.  This past week we enjoyed one of those- Lydia’s first bath.   In my opinion, nothing smells sweeter than a newborn lathered in baby lotion from head to toe.  To get to this point, however, it takes lots of preparation and assistance from others.  Giving a 3 week old a bath is no easy task…

Mickey was a trooper and helped “skin the rabbit” DSC_0293while Mackaylan and I prepared the water and checked the temperature.  DSC_0294Lydia DID NOT like this process and let her daddy know it by leaving a warm, yellow spot on his shirt before he could get her into the water and shedding lots of tears!!DSC_0296Once she was in the tub, she continued to cry pretty much the entire time.  Mackaylan does not like it when her “Sissy” is upset so she opted not to assist with the bathing process this time.  DSC_0297After I finished bathing her, Mickey scooped her up and wrap her in this adorable hooded towel.  Being warm and safe in her daddy’s arms calmed her down immediately!DSC_0301And as quick as it started it was over.  Lydia Avanelle was clean, smelling oh so sweet, and nice and cozy in her footed PJs!  DSC_0303It’s hard to believe that in the blink of an eye she will be 6 years old and those tears that she once shed will turn into giggles, smiles, and lots of splashing…..DSC_0305
