Here we are giving him his first bath.
My parents stayed in town all of last week and headed back to Oklahoma today. They were able to see a lot of firsts with us and Luke, including our his first bath and his first walk with us. I am breastfeeding and was completely against using a pacifier in the beginning, because I was worried it would affect his latch, but my mom thought it might help "pacify" him at certain times, so we thought we'd try it. We're now using it when we change his diapers and we used it during his first bath--what a lifesaver. I just hate hearing him cry and want to console him and make it all better, and this really seemed to do the trick. It hasn't affected his latch at all.
Just as content as can be during his first bath with his little pacifier from the hospital. They gave him this pacifier with a little sugar water to suck on during his circumcision.
Being cooped up indoors for 4 days, I was extremely anxious to get some fresh air. Unfortunately, it was barely 60 degrees, so we insulated Luke's stroller really well and then we all took him on a short, but nice walk.
