First Tub Bath!!

So, on March 27th (Happy Birthday Kara) Kaygan finally got her first tub bath... we've been waiting and waiting and WAITING for her umbilical cord stump to fall off... and it finally did a few days ago! There was still a little bit of it hanging on, so we kept treating it with alcohol for a few days before we got it wet!

I was so excited to get to do this. One of my big 'things' in the hospital, was that I'd wanted her first bath to be in our room with us, so we could take pictures etc. Basically, I just wanted to be there for her first bath. Well, with everything that happened, obviously, a bath was the last thing on everyone's minds that night! She did get one from a NICU nurse when she was a few days old, but they did it in the middle of the night when we weren't there.

So, we pulled out the camera and everthing!

Here she is getting ready!

She tolerated the whole thing pretty well until the water started to get a little chilly... it was either that or me rinsing the shampoo out of her hair. Two tiny little trickles ran into her face and it was all over from there! Then, she was loud and proud of it! It took a few minutes to calm her down and get her dressed, but then she had a very VERY sound nap!
