Bath Time

What's this little gross thing I'm holding? Norah's umbilical stump! Yuck. It finally fell off yesterday, so now she just has a regular little belly button in its place.

So, of what significance is this? Well, she now gets to graduate from sponge baths to regular baths in her tub!
She can't really express it, but I think she likes the suddsiness better. Plus, we got to break out the bath toys!
Today, my mother in law is flying in (she's just staying for 4 days), and we're excited to have her come stay with us since she'll be the first family member to come and see Norah. So, that means I need to go and get started on cleaning my house!

Oh man! Sooo cute! Her little belly... I love it! :)

I have a feeling I'm going to learn oh-so much from your blog. See, I did not know a baby's first "real" bath came after the "stump" fell off. Good to know.

I'm a smarter person now!

Hell, no, I wouldn't be excited to have my mother in law staying with us! BUt maybe she'll give you a break. Gross on posting the pic of the cord, yuck! But yay for graduating into real baths! she's so cute!

I love that you took a picture of her cord! haha So funny! I know someone that SAVED the cord and FRAMED the stupid thing w/a bunch of baby pictures and stuff in a memory box and it still hangs in the girls apartment. So gross.

she does look quite happy in the bath! :)

Betsy said...

Now that the cord is off, you can't return her. Good thing she's so cute.

MCM Mama said...

Dude, the whole point of visiting family is to allow them to cook and clean for you. Didn't you get that memo? ;o)

Norah is cute as usual!

Marci said...

For whatever reason this post has me humming.. "Rubber duckie, you're the one... Rubber duckie lets have some fun!!" Sorry if that sticks in your head today!

Katie A. said...

Wow, I just threw up a little in my mouth (I'm an idiot, I clicked the photo for an upclose site - bad idea to those who don't have babes yet.)
Glad to see you're enjoying bath time - and mother-in-law time! :) You are a better woman than I! Happy Friday! :)

Marlene said...

Bath time looks fun! She seems to like it.

That picture reminds me of something... my cousin's son's umbilical thingy came off and she placed it on the bathroom counter for whatever reason. She forgot about it and they had company later... sure enough, someone non-baby-oriented goes in there and is all "WHAT THE -- IS THIS?" haha

Have a great weekend and enjoy the MIL visit!

MN Mom said...

She is so darling! Have fun with Grandma little Norah!

PS Just want to remind you to wash her quilt inside a pillow case on gentle. So the jeans won't fray so much and pull apart.

Two "firsts" for the baby book ;) Don't their little bellies look so much cuter without the nasty chunk of whatever-that-is?

Brooke just got into bath toys in the past month or so - and is totally obsessed!

Viper said...

I hope these are the only naked pictures we see of your daughter on the Internet.

SOOOOOO cute. seriously.

(are you prepared to deal with tons of "so cute" comments on your blog pretty much indefinitely?)

d.a.r. said...

Okay, ew. Haha! But the pictures of her in the tub are precious!

Lily on the Road said...

ewwww,

Baby Norah is too cute! But I'm with Viper, there are a lot of perv's out there.....don't "expose too much" of her!

Crystal said...

She looks like she's enjoying her first "real" bath. Gotta love the addition of suds and toys!

RunnerGirl said...

Love the bath pictures!

Agate Lake Girl said...

I remember calling Jon at work when Rylee's umbilic stump fell off. He made me save it so he could see it when he got home.

She does look like she's enjoying herself. If only she had a book to read in that bubble bath... :)

Jess said...

Hahah she looks so cute and happy in that little bath tub!

Viv said...

LOL! I am glad Shane caught the stump in our house. Look at those fat lil leg rolls!! SO CUTE!! I am glad you all had a nice visit with the MIL. Now you got a oic of the whole family, and a bonus pedi.

Amanda said...

That belly button stump is gross but oddly fascintating....yay for bath time!
