first bath

Sorry, no pictures. Camera battery charger is misplaced...
Ezri was so cute. I aked her to help me get the bath ready for Zain. She reminded me "needs bubbles!" and once the water was running, "need Zain, get Zain!"

So, Zain was very content in the warm bubbles. Very calm, looking around, kind of floating off the little baby holder thing . . . And I was all absorbed in getting him very clean . . . when Ezri popps into the bathroom naked and starts to climb in with him. She took off her pajamas and diaper all by herself., very quietly, kind of sneaky in the hallway... I told her she had to go potty if she wanted into the bath - so she went, and then climbed in.

They were pretty adorable. Ezri helped wash Zain's hair, then dumped a bucket of water on his face.
Later, we all went to the doctor for Zain's 2 week check up. He now weighs 10 lbs, 6 oz! that's a whole pound since just last week! We will have to wait till Monday for the lab results from Tuesday's blood draw, but he sure seems to be doing well.

My update is that in the past 2 weeks, I have dropped over 25 pounds. Keep in mind, a big chunk of that was actual Zain, but I seem to be recovering a lot faster than with Ezri.

I'm sensing that Zain will need some augmentive nick name, like Kade Kong had.

Zain Bain? Zain-Zilla? Zain-Bunyan?

In-Zain! Duh!

Kade already thought up "Zany-Zain"
Christian calls him "IN-zain in the membrane"
Ezri still calls him "Zain Zain Zain Bah"

I call him "Grumpy"

I like Zain-Zilla. that's funny
