Bathtime for Will

Up until a few days ago, William has been hanging on to his umbilical cord stump very stubbornly.  And I have been waiting very patiently (Ok, maybe not so patiently) for it to fall off.  Why was I so impatient?  Because, Will hates sponge baths on the counter and I don’t blame him.  The counter is cold and hard.  It makes him yell with all the volume his little lungs can muster which is actually quite a lot of volume by the way.

But this all ended on Sunday at approximately 4 AM.  While I was giving William his diaper change in the semi-dark, I noticed something sitting next to him.  So I poked it.  And then I realized that it was the umbilical cord stump and I very nearly burst into dance.  But I restrained myself because 1) William wasn’t wearing a diaper and that is a very dangerous situation and 2) I wanted him to go back to sleep and I wasn’t sure dancing around was the best way to make that happen.

So today when I realized Will needed a bath I wasn’t as pessimistic about the whole situation as I normally am.  In fact, I was kind of excited and hopeful.  I was really hoping that he would like a regular bath much more than a counter-top bath, and he sure did!  He loved it!!  Goodbye dreaded counter baths, we have moved on to lovely bathtub baths 😀
