Emma's First Bath

Emma is five days old and doing well. My breast milk never fully came in, so we are formula feeding her. The same thing happened with Samuel, so this was not an unexpected surprise. We had a hard time today getting her to eat because she did a lot of sleeping. So we decided to give her a sponge bath (her umbilical cord, or "the Slug" as David likes to call it, hasn't fallen off yet). She was not very happy with us while it was happening, but the end results were worth it. She was smelling and looking good afterwards! It was amazing to be bathing her, but remembering so much of Samuel's first bath. I know that the two of them will be very different, but its neat to see the traits that make them family. Here are some pictures of her first bath!
