Bath Time!

Here are some pictures of Michelle's first real bath. We didn't remember to take any until after we were done, of course, but we still got a few. The first two are when she was just out of the tub (and before she peed everywhere!).

After her bath, I put her Eucerin on to help keep her skin moisturized (essential for AA babies). I also put it in her hair, but I put in waaaay too much. I then spiked it before combing it. I was planning on combing it straight just like her birthmother did in the hospital (we think it's going to end up being straight), but it didn't work so well. Instead, she looked like a little grease ball, and I was unsuccessful in my attempt to wipe it off with a towel.

She still looked that way when we spent the day with her birthmother the following day. (Her birthmother laughed at me!) I'm learning; somehow I forgot everything we did with Steven!

I am cracking up at the hair problems! Isn't it great that we can try and figure this stuff out in the privacy of our own home??? I love Michelle's hair and I can't wait until Sadie has more, but then I wonder how I am ever going to manage it all!?!? Am I ever going to get a pick through it? Will I figure out the right product??? I am hoping lotion will work wonders for the first year!

Thanks for sharing! She's perfect!
