by special request (no, really): violet's first bath.

just like oliver's, violet's umbilical stump fell off after just one week. this pleases me because umbilical stumps cause me stress. oliver spent the week after letting us know his great concern about the location of the stump. i was frequented with the question "where's the stump?" and was eventually informed that we should look for it. toddlers. it doesn't matter how many times in a row you answer the same question. it will be asked again. and again. and again. all in a row. it is like you are talking to a brick wall.

so, you're not supposed to submerge babies with stumps. maybe the stumps swell to 10x their size. who knows. they never tell you the why of their ways. but despite the stump being off for a full week, we continued with the whore's baths. because we are lazy baby bathers.

since her two week appointment was on wednesday, we decided tuesday night was the night. we dipped her in the bathroom sink and i got all of 4.25 seconds of video before i had to shut off the camera and assist with a wailing baby. then, she was calm for most of it. oliver had been fairly displeased with his baby baths.

of course i took photos.

this photo has absolutely nothing to do with the first bath, unless you want to call it a before photo. i include it because i think it's funny how i seem to be accidentally assembling a collection of photos of violet throwing down gang signs.

she really liked the lighting.
