There's a first time for everything...

As you might imagine, there are lots of firsts happening at our house these days, for both the babies & the parents. Jake & Mallory had their first baths at home on Wednesday of last week, & neither of them liked it very much. Here's Jake demonstrating his lung capacity:
Mallory cried too but resigned herself to her fate after a few minutes.
Here's Jake's first bath experience, with instruction by Mimi:

Immediately after this bath, Jake blessed me with a first as a mommy: getting peed on. I was drying him off & preparing to dress him when he shot a stream straight up to my face. Luckily, I closed my mouth a split second before this little present hit me in the chin. What fun!

These two are from last night's baths. The Hibbetts & Ezzells gave them these adorable hooded towels. Jake is a little unsure about being a cow.Mallory is a cute little chickie!The babies have both started smiling more in the last few days, especially in their sleep. Please don't leave any comments telling me that it's just from gas. I don't care if that is the case - it's still super cute!These two pics are off topic, but I'll go ahead & include them in this post. Rae & Hattie both stopped by yesterday...and then Michelle came to visit today.Jake & Mallory have also learned what the Chamblee family's favorite evening pastime is: watching TV. They don't seem quite as into it as the rest of us. Pops' lap makes a great lounge chair for Jake.Mallory prefers Daddy's chest.Here's another first for me. I've learned to hold two babies at once. Double the sweetness!The twins' first time to have their nails filed was very necessary. Those things are sharp! Neither of them seemed to mind too much, so I was thankful for that.Jake was ashamed of the shape his nails were in.We look forward to many more firsts!

Love, love, love your blog!!! Your babies are completely adorable! Wasn't it nice to have an experienced "baby bather" there for your first bath? Thanks for finding the time to share your precious children with all of us.
