Baby's first bath

This past weekend, Makenna had the pleasure of experiencing her very first "real" bath. Up until recently, we were still sponge bathing her because her umbilical cord was still attached. Of course it did end up falling off when I changed her, and I'm sure Enz was pretty jazzed about that-the whole cord falling off thing kinda grossed her out! Knowing that it was going to be a little bit of a shock, I decided to get Makenna prepared by giving her a little pep talk.
After phsyching her up, I handed her off to Enz, who took charge of the whole "bath project." Auntie Sarah was there playing the papparazzi role, while I stood by with both towel & video camera in hand. Once Makenna's but touched the water, she started crying. We all knew she wouldn't like it, but we also knew that she needed to get through it. So Enz pressed on regardless of the cries.

It only took a couple of minutes, but once Makenna got used to the water, she immediately calmed down and stopped crying. It was almost as if someone hit the mute button, because she did a complete 180! I still think she went pee-pee in the bath, but there's no real proof. Whatever it was, she really started to enjoy herself!
