Dunk in the tub with Dad

After just a couple of sponge baths I was exited to try taking Kelton into the regular tub for Dad-and-boy bathtime. He was only about 2 1/2 weeks old but we decided to go for it. We didn't know what to expect but it went fine. He had kind of a surprised look on his face when I dunked him in up to his chest, but seemed to enjoy it for the most part, except when I left parts out of the water too long and they got cold. He floats real well so it's not too hard to avoid a full dunking. Just as with the sponge bath, his favorite part is getting shampoo massaged into his hair and rinsed with a paper cup.

In we go...

Some actual washing does have to get done...

We've done this 3 times now -- once to show off for Nana and Papa.

What's not shown is Mom's role in helping get baby in and out and dressed again. In between doing that, she got some great video of this but it's not ready yet.

Boy that head smells good!
