First bath

We had a big day today... Reid and I got to give Olivia her first bath! She had been wiped down, but never had a thorough "scrubbing." I was really excited that her nurses included us and let us do most of the work! In true form Olivia wasn't very happy about the bath, but loved getting her hair washed. Sweet little girl likes greasy hair about as much as her mom! :)



The other big treat of the day was Reid getting to pick her up while the nurses changed out her bedding. I could have just cried the moment was so special. This daddy loves his little girl SO much!


 Does that smile not melt your heart?



One word: Smitten.


Notice the pouty lip.

Below is a little comparison of how much her hair has grown in the last month. The first picture was taken today and the second was taken when she was about a week old. I can't even imagine how much hair she will have in another month!

tears over here. This is so sweet! I love Reid's face when he's holding her-- pretty sure Olivia has him wrapped around her little fingers :)
