First bath

The first bath is such a milestone.
The parents are nervous.
The newborn is blissfully unaware.
Cameras are poised to capture the moment ...
And so it was when Ruby had her first bath.

The dear little thing took it all in her stride. She's pretty placid and we took it slowly.

She didn't bark or yelp or howl at all ... (unlike other experiences I've had bathing newborns)

She squirmed a bit and slipped a bit ... and wondered what on earth was happening...

We rinsed her off with lovely warm water.
The out of the bath and into a towel.
She shook and shook and shook and shook and
raced around the house and around and around and around ....
Then she had a big long sleep.
Not bad really!
