The day after we came home from the hospital, we decided to give Avonlea her first real bath. Since my mom, Mumsy, gave Oliver his first bath, Brian and I asked her to do the same with Avonlea. We invited the boys in to help, which they loved.
...although I think the boys were more interested in playing in the water than giving a bath to their new baby sister.
Aunt Brooklyn looks on while Mumsy gets the bathwater ready.
The boys watch her get bathed.
Avonlea is a very easy going baby. She hardly made a peep.
After Mumsy washed her body, she wrapped her in a towel and washed her hair.
One of the most special parts of this bath was the brush that was used. This little brush is my newborn brush given to my mom when I came home from the hospital. I hope this little brush can be used on the next generation.
Avonlea shows her curls.
Aunt Brooklyn (my sister and Avonlea's namesake) helps get her dressed.
Avonlea doesn't want her hair brushed.
And, oh the cries when it comes to placing her bow.
But once Avonlea is dressed and snuggled tightly in Mumsy's arms, she is quite happy.
Pretty girl, all clean and smelling baby-fresh.
Thanks Mumsy and Aunt Brook for giving Avonlea her first bath!!
