Her Very First Bath!

Abby got her very first REAL bath the night before Easter!  Nope, she'd never had anymore than a sponge bath until then.  Crazy, right?! 

I finally found our missing infant bath tub and worked up the nerve to try her out in it.  Because it's so dangerous for water to get into the trach (read:  into the trachea), I've been pretty hesitant to try it. 

At first, she looked at me with this are-you-sure-this-is-a-good-idea look on her face, but once I splashed her legs a little and showed her how she could use her hands and feet to splash, she loved it!

I still wouldn't brave bathtime without two people, but it was definitely a lot of fun.

Here's a video of Abby's first introduction to the water.  There will be many more pictures to come!
