Liam’s First Bath

This morning was a welcome escape from the emotion – using a different side of the emotional scale by meeting up with Ezra and going to a place called Monkey Bizness. We have written about the place before, but for those that might be new to the blog, its a play place for children that has several locations in the area. We went to a different place than we have been before, with this one being geared towards slightly older kids (lots of inflatable bounce objects, slides, obstacle course, etc). We laughed and played and sweated and laughed more for a while.

In the afternoon we were able to give Liam his first bath. I suppose that he had something immediately after birth, but I don’t consider that a bath…it’s more of a let’s-make-him-less-slippery sort of thing. Due to all of the lines that he still has (even though they are half of what they were two days ago), he isn’t able to get into a tub of any sort, so it’s a hand-towel bath for now. Because he hasn’t been able to have a bath yet, he was starting to get some dry skin all over, and this wash seemed to double as an exfoliating event. He seemed so much more soft after it was done and it was really great for Ahna and I to be able to do that with him.

    • Ahna, Oren, Ezra and Liam! You are on my mind so often during the day at church and I pray for your whole family during this joyous and sad time. There are so many people at Our Savior’s who truly care about you and your parents. Just know that a lot of prayers are coming from Wisconsin to Colorado. God bless Liam!
