First Bath

What great excitement met the news that Baby's cord had fallen off at last!  It was time for a bath.  We filled the tub with warm water, turned down the lights and lit a candle.  We bathed her quickly with castille soap and a soft washcloth.  Still, she didn't like it.  (Mommy would have loved such a bath.)


We dried her with a warm towel and then gave her a massage with almond and lavender oils.  Finally, we dressed her in warm pjs and a new cap and wrapped her up "burrito style." Hopefully, someone will sleep well tonight.
