Silver Lining: little rituals and freshly bathed babes

little rituals and freshly bathed babes

Isn't it funny the little rituals that become so important to us? After I had Claire, I was in the emergency room with some terrible post-delivery complications, so I missed her first bath, and I was inordinately sad about it (although I am so grateful to Sam + Krysti for taking care of her when I couldn't). This time around, I was really looking forward to giving the twins their first sponge bath. Something about the warm water and the yummy smelling soap and the gentle massage just seems like a rite of passage for new parents, and I was determined not to miss it this time.
 ^^ My very determined helper.
There's nothing like a fresh, clean baby all wrapped up and smelling like heaven. (Actually, she smelled like Johnson’s® Head-To-Toe Baby Wash, which is basically the same thing in my book.)

^^Do you see baby Link's little sleep smile back there? You guys, he has two cheek dimples that will make him a major heartbreaker one day.
A big thank you to Johnson’s® for sponsoring today's post! We've used and loved their products in our home since I was growing up. Their new line of Extra Moisturizing Baby Wash and Extra Moisturizing Baby Cream just launched, both of which are extra mild and infused with Vitamin E and baby oil for baby's tender skin. And of course you can't go wrong with the classic Head-To-Toe Baby Lotion. Learn more by visiting Johnson’s® Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
If you follow me on snapchat, you know I take wayyyyy too many pictures of my twins cuddled up sleeping together. But really, can you blame me? If they're snuggled together they can sleep for hours, and I can't get enough.

Anyone else attached to baby's first bath?
What are other rites of passage for new parents?
Besides being super sleep deprived and covered in spit up, of course. ;)

I’m sharing #JOHNSONS in my life as part of a JOHNSON’S® sponsored series for Socialstars™
