Serenity’s First Bath

Monday, July 14th, 2008
We gave Serenity her first bath!  It was Eric’s idea =) He was so excited at the thought of giving her a bath!  She was all messy from our last feeding because she got dripped on =)  She didn’t fuss too much… especially when I let her suck on my finger.  Eric washed and rinsed her very carefully, and Tina took pictures for us =)  Once she was all dry with her cute little nightgown on, she was very calm.  She was awake and looking at the faces around her.  She snuggled with me for a while and then Mom, then went right to sleep in her crib.  So the first bath was a success!

Our baby is here!!!! She is just so perfect!  She is a very mellow snuggly baby at the moment, and so nice to everyone!  She chose just the perfect day to come (the only day no one guessed in the baby poll!)  Grandma was very happy she waited until she got here!  She was born at 10:21 am on July 9th, 2008!  She was 7 pounds 10 ounces and 20 inches long, so just a wonderful size =)

It’s July!!!!

I’m due in just five days!  It’s incredible to believe that July is here!!!!  I think I’ve been waiting until now to even start thinking about her actually coming =)  Yesterday after my doctor appointment I was suddenly so excited and impatient for her to arrive!!!  I wanted my baby NOW!!!   I think today I’m more relaxed again… I took a bath and remembered how much I’m enjoying just being pregnant, so I think I’m ok to wait until she’s ready to come =)  Yesterday I was considering taking long walks and eating spicy foods to encourage her to come.  I might still eat the spicy foods but just because I’m trying to teach her to like them while I have a captive audience =)  Here’s my 39 week picture, and a picture of the bunny I made with the last of my 2000 two inch quilt squares.  I can’t believe I used them up!  The feet and ears are minkee, so they’re fuzzy and soft =)  Eric wants to name the bunny Bair… because I couldn’t decide whether to make the baby a bunny or a teddy bear for a long time.  And he loves to confuse the baby =)
