It's been awhile since we gave Johnny his first bath, but I figured I'd write about the experience nonetheless. After his umbilical cord fell off (about a week after birth), John and I were allowed to give him his first real bath, instead of a sponge bath. So we did!

We filled up the kitchen sink with 3 inches of warm water, donned our robes, and gave him a scrub-down. He wasn't very excited to be stripped of his pajamas and diaper in the kitchen (it was a little cold), but once he hit the water, he was a happy camper.


After this delightful bath, we took him out and wrapped him in his little hooded towel, which wasn't his favorite since it was a little cold. John toweled him off as much as he could so we could put a diaper on him when we got upstairs.

But then he peed all over John. And I laughed. A lot.
