It was very exciting when the umbilical stump fell off because that meant that Maddie could have a real bath in her real little tub in the sink. Of course I kept the little stump, although not quite sure what I am going to do with it quite yet other than keep it in the little Ziploc baggie. She lost her stump at two weeks exactly. Before when we had to do the sponge baths she hated all the parts except when we would do her hair, she would love it. Now that we are taking "big girl baths" she loves the whole thing. Just sitting soaking in the water, and of course the hair, I mean look at that face!
