Have you ever seen one of these before? It’s called a Wash Pod and we love it.
This was her first real live bath. Up until now, I was just giving her little sponge baths laid out on a towel on the dining room table. She was just so tiny, I could not imagine overwhelming her with a real bath.
I enjoy all of these firsts. Each time we gather around the new baby for a first, it brings me back to each of the firsts with the other four children. It doesn’t take away the thrill at all, though, that I’ve done these little mundane things five times over. In fact, I am certain that I appreciate them more now than ever!
I feel like I’m in my own little world here with my newborn and the children home from school. Every day is a joy, watching the older siblings getting to know our Little One better. Seeing her respond to them, turning her head when they walk in the room and giving a little coo when they smile at her up close, it gives me so much joy and makes me feel so grateful.
God is good. All the time!
