Jackson's umbilical cord FINALLY came off and we were able to take a big boy bath. It was so much fun to finally be able to use our cute tub (thanks Sara) and get him REAL clean. He only cried for just a minute and then realized it felt good. Then he really enjoyed himself. We turned on the space heater in the bathroom and I think that helped a lot to keep him warm. Rob was a great photographer and caught some good moments. I felt pretty accomplished as well since I gave him a bath one-eyed. He was slippery but didn't slip away from Momma!!!!!
We also napped together and Rob caught a great picture--eye patch and all. I have to try to lay down as much as possible for my eye to heal. Hard to do with a 3 week old but we're doing our best. When he is napping then I lay down on my face or side and try to get in the time needed. I go back to the doctor tomorrow for my 2nd post-op check up and hoping for good news. I know I'll have to have a follow up surgery in a few months to take the oil they put in my eye, but hopefully that will NOT require a long recovery time. I don't want to miss out on anything with Jackson.
Jackson is all ready for his bath...Naked boy wrapped up in a cloth diaper. He has NO clue what he's in for :)
He is not too sure if he likes it yet.
Ok, he doesn't like it now!
This isn't too bad..kind of enjoying it now.
He was really good for Mommy and let us finish the bath without any big issues. No accidents in the tub either!!!
