Bath time

 Technically, Asher's first bath was in the hospital, right after he was born:
 He quite enjoyed having Daddy scrub his hair.

 Asher's first bath at home, though, was on Friday night.
His cord is still on, so we couldn't do a real bath--just a clothie/water rinse off. I braced myself for a lot of crying--that's what Reed's first bath consisted of.

 But, although he looked a little disconcerted, Asher remained content throughout the experience.

Even when his plug happened to fall out.

And afterward, he just chilled awake for a while.

And, on a completely unrelated note, Asher and I went in for a little lactation consulting today and the nurse did a weight check on Asher. This little piglet now weighs 7 lbs., 9 oz, is 19 1/2 inches (doctor's office must have been off?), and has a head circumference of 14 1/2 inches. That means he's gained 10 ounces since his two-day check-up. Seeing Asher gain 10 ounces in 6 days--especially after the Reed weight-gain saga--warms my heart :)
