Sophia’s First Bath

Posted on 15th December 2011 in NICU, Week 6

(This is about December 15th, but I’m writing this on December 18th)

Today was a big day for the twins.  Cameron got his second bath.  I got to give my first bath.  AND…Sophia got her first bath.

Here’s Cameron pondering the world after his morning coffee…

Tanya is by far the most interesting thing in the world for both kids.  If I ever want the kids to look a certain direction for a photo, I just ask Tanya to stand there…

After his morning feeding, Cameron sat up (with help) in his favorite burping position.  It looked freakishly odd to me, but he really loves laying his neck & chin on a hand while he’s sitting up…

Because of some “technical difficulties,” I don’t have any pictures of Cameron’s bath.  He really loves baths…even when I give them.

When it was time for her bath, Sophia was wide awake.  She thought she might be in for some feeding, so she was on the lookout for Tanya…

You can tell by all the “extras” on her face that she was really ready for a good cleaning…

Sophia knew something was up…

We took our time getting her in the bath because I kept taking photos.  She got bored.  YAWN!

Before her bath, Sophia took her first karate lesson.  Wax on…wax off…

During her naked trip to the bathtub, Sophia was convinced the world was ending.  Much like Cameron, as soon as she hit the water, the world was a happy place again…

Warm water is awesome…

“I see angels…”

So let’s tally this up.  Tanya gives Sophia food.  Tanya gives Sophia baths.  Tanya cuddles with Sophia.  Sophia loves Tanya.

Sophia was literally glowing.  This is a completely unretouched photo.  She really looked like this…

…and this is what she looks like drunk…

I WANT MORE BATH TIME!!!

This is her “feed me” face…

She settled down pretty quickly.  Hopefully she remembered how awesome bath time was…

Sophia looked amazing after her bath.  Once she was all cleaned up, I snapped this photo with my iPhone & shared it with the world…

Here she is a little more up close & personal.  Cute!

After her bath, Sophia had her first real latched on breast feeding.  The same thing happened with Cameron too.  There’s something to these baths, I tell ya.
