Since his stump fell off that was also a signal that we were able to give Eli his first real bath at home. As soon as Mark walked in the door that evening I had the tub setup on the kitchen counter. I had full intentions of grabbing some photos of Eli's first bath but his first bath was not as easy going as I assumed it would be. In fact Eli hated his first bath. It was the first time Mark or I had ever heard Eli give out a REAL cry, you know the kind where the scream is so long and his face gets so read you have to tell him to breath. He was royally pissed off and we rushed the bath as much as possible to hurry up and get him out and prevent the blood curdling screams. As soon as he was swaddled in a towel he was fine. We waited until Sunday to give him his 2nd bath which became necessary after several spit ups and an incident where a diaper change ended with a shower in his own pee....boys are so much fun! ha To our surprise this bath went over much better....not a single cry! Since he enjoyed his bath so much we were able to snap photos of his first "good" bath.
