the first bath.

Confession: We didn’t give Cora her first bath until she was 2 weeks + 2 days old. Granted, we gave her two quick sponge baths while her cord was still attached, but apparently we were in no hurry to bathe her once it fell off. Oops. I finally told Mark one night that our kid was stinky and we bathed her the next morning. She never fussed until I started drying her off, and then she passed out for four hours. haha

P.S. In lieu of a typical baby bath, we registered for the Blooming Baby bath and holy smokes, that thing is awesome. Cora just kind of curled up and got comfy in it and we never had to worry about bonking her head or having to hold her upright. We tossed it in the dryer afterward and it hangs in our bathroom between baths. Two thumbs up!

an evening walk.

Two days or so after we got home from the hospital, we decided it was nice enough outside to take Cora on her first walk to the mailbox. It’s a good half mile walk and we were excited to bust out her stroller! She slept through the whole thing, in true Cora fashion. (She seriously sleeps constantly, guys. It’s unreal.)

We also decided it was time to introduce her to our “neighbors”. ;)

cora’s newborn photos.

While I’m still piecing together Cora’s birth story and waiting for some photos, I at least wanted to share a few of her newborn photos in the meantime! Mark and I drove to Duncan last Wednesday to visit Keelie, who so very graciously allowed me to borrow her adorable studio space for the day and helped me out with posing. (Newborns are tough to photograph!) I’d recommend her a million times over if you’re in need of newborn photos…homegirl knows what she’s doing and I learned so much.

P.S. In case it wasn’t obvious, there is going to be an overload of baby stuff around here for a bit. ;) We’re getting through all Cora’s “firsts” and I’m excited to share them all, though I know it may get old for some readers. Hold tight, because I promise I’ll get back to outfit posts and DIYs and whatnot when things around here get a little more settled!
