Last Friday, James and I gave Em his very first real bath. We're talking full-on baby (sans head, of course) water submersion. None of that sponge bath nonsense. Boy did he love it! He was quite a content baby if I've ever seen one. The nurses at the hospital told James and I that babies only need about one to two baths per week, but there's no harm in bathing them more frequently if they're a fan of it. Considering Emmett is a fan, I think there are many more baths in his future.

Due to the risk of embarrassing future Emmett, I debated about whether to post bathtime pictures. Sorry Em, but it was really too cute to pass up, so I've included an edited version (I compromised). After all, what are parents for? (Future Emmett will just be happy I didn't post the video ....)
