My Joy these days is heavily centered on the new
squishy babe that has joined our family.
And one of these joyful times is at night,
when I am putting E to bed.
What is it about sleeping babies?
Innocent, peaceful, so relaxed..ahhhh!
Our night time routine has become my favorite time.
While J hold him and tries to keep him awake,
I go upstairs, run a warm bath,
turn my Pandora station to "The Piano Guys"
pull out his night diaper, PJ's, swaddle,
and his body wash and lotion.
Most night I just bathe E in his baby bath
but some nights I slip in the tub with him.
This is my favorite.
He loves for me to just lightly hold him in the water
while he looks around and just floats.
I soap him up, rinse him off, sing to him
and we have a little skin to skin bonding time.
HEY! even I'm more relaxed after that bath!
after bath comes,
a little lotion massage,
into our PJ's,
I swaddle E tight
and then were off to the nursery,
where I turn on the sound machine,
turn on the projector,
feed him a bottle,
burp him and
then lay him in his bassinet and watch his heavy eyelids
Once hes a bit older I hope to add a bedtime story to this list.
These are the moments I don't want to forget
and the times where I wish time would just slow down.
These are not pictures of E sleeping at night. (not about to let
a camera wake a sleeping babe!)
but how sweet is he when he sleeps!?
These are E at only 4 & 5 days old!
He is such a peanut!
