And the award for most ridiculous parents goes to…

Y’all, I love being a mom.  It’s outrageous.  We are having a freaking blast.

And I’m sorry the blog hasn’t been updated in a while!  Washing bottles is a full time business.

To tide us all over until I have a speck of free time and can get some real blogging work done, let’s enjoy the pictures we took of Raylan today.  Here’s a hint:  EYEBROWS.

Happy 6 weeks, my little buddy!!

First Bath!

Due to the alarming amount of cheese Raylan was trying to grow in his neck fat, as soon as that umbilical cord stump (nub? piece? bit? cling on?—>lol, cling on) fell off, it was time for a REAL bath!  He had mixed feelings about it…

Pre-bath...I think he knows what's coming...

All clean!

All clean!

Cheese be gone!

Cheese be gone!

 

Things I noted:

-the second you have scrubbed all the nooks and crannies, he will pee all over himself, so keep an extra rag over his manly bits to mitigate this risk

-we have a heater in the bathroom, so we kicked that on – that, combined with the warm water, made for a happy-ish baby after the initial deluge

-NEWBORNS ARE SLIPPERY BOOGERS WHEN WET, PROCEED WITH CAUTION

-follow up with a baby massage with lotion, a meal, and some snuggles to get a couple hours of sleep out of your almost 2 week old

All in all, it was a success!
