the first bath

One of my favorite things about the newborn days is how babies glow after a bath. There's no other word for it; they just glow. I think babies may be the inspiration for the expression "fresh-scrubbed." Since Natalie's cord fell off, she was ready for her first dip in the tub. Sarah was eager to help scrub her little sister. Here a few pictures of the occasion.

She's all done! (Please excuse the exhausted mommy in this photo).

All I can think is how nervous I'd be giving a newborn a bath! lol!

You look very happy. :-)

You look great, Karen. Way better than I did after my second was born. And, speaking of glowing, I think I see a little bit of light coming from you as well!

Thanks for sharing the pics!
