Suds and Bubbles

My mom has always been the one who gives all the babies or all of her grandbabies their baths everyday when they are new and first come home. It is such a scary thing giving those little dependant babies their baths. Taylor’s umbilical cord finally fell off so I attempted to give her very first submerged bath all by myself! And…she loved it! She just sits quietly like it is so soothing to her! I find it peaceful as well giving her the bath. My favorite part is the fresh baby smell at the end of bath time. There is no better smell on earth than a clean baby!

Taylor is getting up every three hours at night, which is only really waking up twice a night. I am still so tired because going from getting 8-11 hours of sleep at night to this is quite a change. I need to get her to sleep longer if I want her to be in her own crib and own room like I did with Nathan so quickly. But---she is only 2 weeks old---patience.
