Splish Splash!

Harry's umbilical cord fell off last night. He was nine days old. OMG... my son is growing up too fast! But really, I'm glad that thing is G-O-N-E! It was kind of gross. I was changing his diaper and noticed it was just hanging on by a tiny thread. Harry squirms a lot during diaper changes, and by the time we were finished it was all the way off!

Harry's First Bath
On Tuesday Harry had his first bath at home. He was bathed at least twice while in the hospital. Once right after he was born by a nurse.




And then on Saturday night Ant and I were able to bathe him in the NICU with the help of his nurse.


Here he is during Tuesday's bath.


He did really well, all things considered. I think it'll take a while before he actually enjoys being in the bath, but we'll get there. He'll have another bath tomorrow; the nurses at the hospital said we only need to bathe him every three days or so.



We've also started doing tummy time.


Ya... we don't like doing it on the floor yet. He does much better when we put him on our chests.

Okay, time to figure out what to have for dinner!
