a week full of firsts

Last week Henry had all kinds of "firsts". His belly button/cord fell off so he was able to take his first bath in his baby tub. He did pretty well until the end when I washed his head. Then he decided he was DONE! It will get easier the more he is able to support himself. It's just so hard when he's so wobbly then you add soap into the mix and he's a slippery mess, but we enjoyed it :) I did the washing and Lee did the drying off- we are quite the team!

Last Saturday we went to Henry's first cookout and met all of Lee's mother's side of the family for the first time. Lee's cousin Richie is getting married next month to a sweet girl named Ashley and all of Lee's aunts threw them a shower. Henry was great! He slept the two hours to Auburn and when we got there I fed him then passed him around! He was so alert and laid back and let everyone "ooh and ahh" over him. He also got to meet his great-grandmother for the first time, Memaw, Lee's grandmother which I thought was very special. I never had grandparents growing up as they all passed away either before I was born or when I was very young so I think it's so special that Henry has so many. He has seven grandparents to be exact and two great grandmothers, how lucky is he!?!
