First Bath

Last week we gave Lucas his first bath. We asked Kayla if she wanted to help and of course she did...she's become the big helper around here. Lucas was not happy at all. Kayla must be used to his crying now because she stayed right there with us giving him a bath as he screamed and cried all through it. She doesn't run and hide in her room anymore :)

He's working up to letting out a cry


Helping to dry Lucas off


Still not a happy camper


Big sister to the rescue!


Content now!


She wanted to make sure he was warm and snuggly with his blanket too


and a kiss from big sister to make it all better!

Those pictures are so cute! I remember giving Logan his first couple of baths - he absolutely hated them. And now we can't get him out :)

Those first baths can be so tough, lucky he has big sis there to make him feel better. What sweet photos!!

Michelle, I cannot belive how big Kayla looks now that Lucas is here, can you? She's such a big girl and what a good helper too! Lucas is such a handsome boy. You and Joe do make beautiful kids!

I hope you are getting your rest and feeling well! Hugs to all of you!

Those pics made my day! She's so great. You're a lucky mama!

Sara said...

Oh my gosh I love those pics!!!! Just adorable

Barb said...

What is it with boys and baths! LOL

Could he be any cuter? I think not. He's absolutely adorable and it's pretty obvious Kayla agrees with me.

Avery has exactly the same binkie and I introduced her to it yesterday. Mom was in the shower, baby was hungry, so Nana stuck the binkie in her mouth and she went right back to sleep. LOL

These photos are precious, Michelle.

Cute pictures! Kayla sure looks like she's having fun being a big sister.

JulieM said...

Just came across your blog. Your kids are darling. It is so fun to see big sisters as little mommies to their little brothers. I had two litte mommies when our little guy was born. There are times now I think he wishes his mommies would disappear. He doesn't get away with too much!

Michelle, they look so precious together and one can tell how much Kayla just loves him!! I don't think too many babies enjoy their baths at first...then there comes a time they don't want to get out of the tub! lol xox
