Maxine's First Tub Bath

Maxine Louise is our brand new baby girl, born July 25, 2008 at 12:14pm. I couldn't have imagined an easier birthing experience, to say the least. In the photo above she is 11 days old. And below are pictures of her first real tub bath since her umbilical cord stump fell off. These pictures were taken this morning. She does not enjoy baths yet. She started crying shortly after that first shot and was very relieved to be wrapped up in her towel afterward.

Today I got her to turn her head toward my voice when I said, "Maxine". When she looked at me I smiled and started talking to her and she smiled back! I think it was a real smile meant for me. I always wonder if she knows who I am, if she finds comfort in my presence. I think she's starting to :)

What sweet moments: The bath and the smile at you. She is so perfect. I think she may be a calm and quiet one :) We'll see soon!
