rub-a-dub-dub

A couple of weeks ago my dear friend, Shay, came to visit and meet Mia! She was a life saver that evening.... I swear she knew I was about to lose my mind, and was willing to keep me company despite all the craziness. (Being a mom really is the most amazing thing ever!! I know I keep dropping vague hints that life was miserably crazy, and it was at first. Not because of Mia, she's an angel baby! The problem for me was nursing, but we've got that figured out now! I do have a post coming that explains what I went through.)
When it was bath time, Shay took pictures which I loved because I hadn't done that yet! Mia HATES bath time right now, ha ha. We could only "sponge" bath her until her cord fell off. It's gone now so we can start giving her baths in her tub, and I hope it helps her to like bath time more! I realize no one cares about these pictures like I do, but I'm going to share them anyway :)

My strong, chicken legged, ANGRY  baby :) She is only 1 week 2 days old in these pictures! She has tried standing since day 1, basically. (Is it bad that I laugh and think her anger is cute during bath time??)

All better now that mom is done with bath torture time :)

I love this squishy face! I just can't get in enough kisses :)

P.S. Shay... if you're reading this (and you better be reading this...) come back ASAP! Mia misses you :)

She is such a doll baby. I love her face in that first picture... she doesn't seem to hate Q-tips, and I think that's a good thing. :)

Glad you're able to have visitors. That always make tough things more fun.

I really like these photos. Whoever your phtographer was she was good. I loved that night even with a grumpy little Mia. I will see you soon.

Janna Renee said...

Aww it's so sweet of Shay to come over, and I definitely think that Mia's angry face is super cute ;)

Shay said...

Yes, Shay is reading this. And very sad that she isn't the Shay who got to visit you and cuddle your sweet baby! Brody hated baths until he was big enough to sit up relatively on his own, now they are so fun!

Rory absolutely LOATHED the sponge baths too, but once we got her in her bath chair in the tub she's loved baths ;) And now she has her own mini-tub that she gets to splish and splash in!

Rebecca said...

Aww bless her, I hope she likes proper baby baths as when they like bath time you can have so much fun playing with them. My friends little boy loves having his ears cleaned with q-tips, he goes all soft and cute.

She's so cute! Adelyn HATED bath time for probably the first month, but she absolutely loves it now. Something that we did that might help you - when we bathe her we wrap her in a thin blanket and put her in her tub wrapped in that. We just unwrap her as we wash and then we cover her back up as soon as we we're done washing her legs or whatever part it is that we're workin on. It helps keep her warm which makes for a happy baby and an even happier momma =)
