His first bath! We wanted to wait for as long as possible to give him his first bath because we were obsessed with vernix. Before bathing him, his armpits and neck creases had a very distinct baby smell...kind of feet-y/cheesy, and we loved it! I never wanted to wash it away! But after three weeks, lint and other gunk started building up and we knew it was time to give him a bath. 

I wasn't sure how he felt about baths at first because he loved this first one but hated the next. This first one, he was calm and curious and looked like he was trying to figure out what was going on. His second was the opposite. He absolutely hated it and screamed and cried until we were finished. And for a while it kept flip-flopping like that until I bought a bath sling for him to lie in. After that and to this day, he seems content with bath time. He doesn't look like he enjoys it, his arms and legs are always spread out, trying to find balance...but at least he seems ok with it.
