Baby girl's first bath


I was able to capture a very tender moment with Taylor soon after Jody and I brought her
home from Dallas. Her first official bath in her little tub. My mom was in town staying
and helping me with the kids, so she helped me take these photos.
 I'm so glad we did.

 I love looking back at them. Baby girl did so good. She didn't cry or whimper...
she grunted a little when we first put her down in the water, which was pretty cute,
 but other than that, she was so calm and seemed to enjoy the feel of the water.


Two things crack me up though about these pictures... 

I look super stressed bathing her...okay--I'll admit it--I was really nervous.
 It took some adjusting those first few days---
getting acclimated again to handling a tiny newborn.
She just seemed so tiny and fragile and
I didn't want this first bath to be an awful experience for her.
 Thankfully it wasn't and she still loves her bath time. 

In the left corner of these pics you can see our stash of Hostess Zingers and Ding Dongs.
Ha...ha..we read in the news that week that Hostess might be closing its doors,
so I stocked up at the store.   Still pretty bummed they had to close their factory and
that I can't have a good 'ole Ding Dong or Zinger every once in while.

She loved afterwards being dried off and then having me put on the baby lotion.
And then having her hair brushed. She then took a good 'ole nap...
and smelled heavenly!

 Oh my goodness....I love her so much!!
My heart melts every time I get to hold her...
kiss her...
cuddle with her...
feed her...
dress her...
and so much more.

I am so, so, so grateful to be her mommy.  PicMonkey Collage


  1. She's a honey! What a special day. I was always nervous too bathing them while they're so small. It's hard!!

    1. Thanks, Kathleen! It really is kind of scary giving them a bath. :-)

  2. Adorable. My favorite? I think it's the third picture where she's looking up at her mommy!
