Cameron’s First Bath

Posted on 8th December 2011 in NICU, Week 5

(I wrote this on Dec 15th, but it’s about the events of December 8th.)

 

The kids are now starting their 5th week in the NICU.  Today, Cameron got chosen for the bath baby of the day.  He’s doing great at maintaining his temperature, so he finally earned the privilege of getting the stink cleaned off of him.  Normally when we take clothes off him, he knows it’s to change his diaper.

NOOO!  STAY AWAY! I LIKE MY POOPIE DIAPER!!

Wearing his birthday suit (without a diaper) was a rare treat.

MOM THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER!  I LOVE YOU!

The trip to the tub wasn’t well liked…

Instantly upon touching the water, Cameron silenced his wail.  It’s almost as if he’d spent many months in a lovely 98.6° bath…

Clean feet!

OOOOO!!!  THIS IS AWESOMMMMEEE!!!!

Having warm water run over your head as a preemie is apparently some sort of nirvana experience…

If you can’t tell, Cameron absolutely loved his bath.  Tanya loved it too…

Smug…

After his bath, Cameron figured out the whole latching on thing & fed for long enough to call it a win.  This is not a picture of him breast feeding…

Sophia didn’t get near the attention today that Cameron did.  She’s doing better each day though…AND she looks great in pink…

What are you lookin’ at!?
