Yesterday was tough.
Will would not go down for a nap. Even if I held him, he fussed after a few minutes of snoozing. He was overtired and we won't get into how tired I was.
Finally, I decided that since he was already grumpy, we might as well give him his first real bath. He hated the sponge baths so much that I was expecting a quick in and out, filled with tears on both of our parts. I didn't even grab the camera, thinking that there was no way this was going to be a photo opp.
Well, he loved it. At first, he cried, but when I added a bit more water, the noise of the faucet startled him and then he was fine! He is too little to smile, but he got really quiet and his eyes were open wide. He kicked at the water with his little feet and seemed happy for a few minutes.
Lest the novelty wear off or he get cold, I took him out before he had a chance to start crying. He then surprised me with about forty-five minutes of angelic, happy baby behavior. I put him in his crib to let him kick and play around. This time, I did have the camera handy.
