Sullivan’s first bath


Sullivan’s umbilical cord fell off the Saturday after he was born, and his belly button had dried up, so it was time for his first bath. We didn’t have our baby bathtub out of the storage unit yet, so we went up to the boater’s lounge bathroom to wash him up. The sink didn’t have a plug so we put a plastic bag over the drain. That’s what the blue thing is in the sink. Hey, it worked!

  1. Grammie Vicky is glowing as she assists with the 1st bath! Looks like Natalie has adjusted to motherhood just fine! Sullivan is very content in his mommy’s arms!

  2. It’s obvious Natalie is a natural at being a great Mom. I’m sure Nate is also a great Dad.
    What a wonderful family.

  3. Thank you! It’s nice now that the umbilical cord has fallen off and now we have a clean, sweet smelling baby boy.
