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!

  1. I just wanted to finally comment, i’ve been reading your blog forever, and i think it’s adorable! I’m not sure how you came up with the name cordelia, but i just wanted to mention that the name is in Shakespeare’s King Lear. The personality of her is perfect, made me fall in love with the name immediately. Sorry if i’m rambling, or if you already knew about it.

    Anyways, she’s beautiful, and i hope everything is going well for you and your new family.

  2. Amanda, my congratulations is way overdue, but I’ve been [quietly] following your blog for so many years and just want to say yay (!) on becoming a mom to such a beautiful baby girl. That 5th picture stole my heart!

  3. That last picture of you and baby is precious. Thanks for sharing this little bit of joy with us!
