Bath Time

Annelise's umbilical cord stump fell off on Saturday, so Drew and I decided to give her her first bath last night.  It was successfully traumatic for all those involved.  She screamed the entire time.  I'd actually like to know if there is a newborn who didn't scream the whole time during their first bath.

You would have thought we were torturing her by how loud her screams were!
Look at that poor sad little pathetic face!

She also pooped all over the towel.

I'm really hoping that she'll start to enjoy her baths more.  Drew and I were thinking that maybe we should have the water warmer next time.  I bought a digital thermometer that displays the temperature of the water throughout her bath, and when I put her in the tub, it read 99*, which according to their recommendations is too warm.  However, our BIL, Eric, said that Wesley liked to take a bath in water that was around 102*.  So, maybe we'll experiment with it being a little warmer.

My newborn loves the bathtub. She gets really calm when I put her in the water.
