First Bath

Our first 24 hours at home haven't been too bad. The first 12 or so were the worst. Cate was a little shocked by the transition to home and was fussy all night, leaving Eric and I to trade off holding her/soothing her every hour (although I also had to try to work in a few feedings in there as well). She's worth it though. Early this morning she finally started to calm down and since then has been in a very good 3 hour or so cycle where she eats, "plays" around a little while we change her diaper or just cuddle, and then sleeps again (which left us time to actually take showers and nap a little). While she was in a good mood, we decided to go ahead and attempt a bath with her.

She wasn't all that crazy about the bath itself. The water was warm...I promise. But we have to keep her belly button/cord dry so we couldn't really soak her in water. It's more of a sponge bath than a regular bath.

She did like being wrapped up in her towel when it was all over though. And once we had her dressed again, she fell right asleep.

Hey Riggs family, I just realized something....our "little" Cate was born on Fat Tuesday! She will for sure be a healthy little one and a party girl too born on the biggest party day of Mardi Gras! What a way to celebrate and make an entrance! Hugs all. Aunt B
