Baby Brother was in fact, quite dirty, and tonight he finally got a real bath! Nicolas spits up a lot, and although I try to keep up with it by cleaning him up and changing his shirt, he is still a bit of a hot mess at the end of the day. We have managed to survive almost 3 weeks... but a bath was certainly finally due!
This child does not like to be cold. He also likes to holler a lot - and quite loudly. Here are some pictures of the bath, I will not post the videos because they consist of non-stop, ear-piercing newborn screams.
I look (because I am) tired. Nicolas looks (because he is) cranky:
He is all dressed and is still screaming...
After all that stress, he had a good feeding and then passed out... here we have a clean baby! Or in Benjamin's language "Baby Brother all clean"
Although they are brothers and they have the same genes, we are starting to find out that Benjamin and Nicolas have quite different personalities. I know we do not need to compare them but one can't help to do so specially in situations like The First Bath....... Benjamin loved his first bath and every bath that followed to this date. Nicolas, not so much. This ought to be fun!
