clean again

We were spoiled this past week; marnie arrived last wednesday and we brought her back to the airport last night. It was a wonderful time of bonding for Owen and Nonny; our freezer has more goodies in it; conversations shared, our lives re-united; rooms were given attention and home created. It was an excellent time together and saying goodbye was hard.

This evening Owen has his first full emersion bath. I'd been sponge-bathing this whole time as I was afraid of the potential situation: a crying, very upset and squirming WET and SLIPPERY baby. Anyway, the idea was not at all appealing to me. But I guess I was feeling brave tonight. It went well! Owen is such a sweet, quiet boy, he only got mildly upset once, and then he was fine. I don't think he enjoyed it, but he was a patient boy through it. He and I snuggled for a while after and he got all dry and warm again and now he's a squeaky clean sleepy beauty on my lap. He's such a wonderful little boy; i am so blessed. This truth finds me multiple times a day and as a result, I'm all smiles and giggles.

This is now how I spend my days.

Owen: wide-eyed and alive after his first emersion bath at home.

I know how hard it is to say goodbye when family visits from far away. It makes me weepy just thinking about it!

On another note, it's wonderful to see pics with Owen's beautiful eyes open!
