The 'ability' cord

The first thing on Chantel's agenda was to give Annie a bath. I told her that we couldn't give her a bath until her umbilical cord fell off. Her face literally deflated when I told her it usually takes about 2 weeks.

On day 4 I was changing Annie's diaper and Chantel started freaking out. "MOM! MOM!! look her 'ability' cord is gone!!!" I laughed so hard, it was so cute! Of course we had to drop everything and bathe the baby right that very second. I was surprised that her cord fell off so fast, I swear it usually seems to take forever!

Annie loved it! She was totally chill just hanging out in the nice warm water.

We wrapped her all up in a nice snuggly towel, took her in and lotioned her with some classic pink baby lotion and she smelled so good I just sat there for 10 minutes and breathed her in. (you can tell it's winter when my skin goes from pale to 'Edward Cullen'... lol)

after a while of smelling the little cutie we had our daily photoshoot, she pooped on the white blanket, and Mitch told me is served me right for torturing his baby girl. I had to remind him that he bought me a new lens for my camera so DUH I'm gonna use it! Besides, she is the cutest thing ever~

oh my gosh she really is so adorable! Does she ever cry? My baby HATED all of his first baths. Maybe our house was too cold.

Hahaha!!!!! Maddison's ability cord took 4 full weeks to fall off. It was the size of a quarter!!!! I'm glad Annie's came off sooner!!!!
