Carrots for Michaelmas: Musings of a Catholic Wife, Mother, and Occasional Redhead

Lucy’s First Bath

We’re pretty worn out from lots of night feedings and I think I might be struggling with a plugged duct that I hope doesn’t become mastitis. So, we are really taking it easy today and I feel like a loser mom letting Benjamin watch way too many movies about backhoes and excavators as we’re all piled in my bed snuggling while I try to nurse Lucy as much as I can. We are reading books and taking a few breaks to play outside…so the day isn’t a complete failure 🙂

But I thought I’d share a picture of our sweet little girl getting her first real bath at home on Saturday.

I haven’t washed her hair since her baptism on Sunday because her head still smells so amazing from the holy oil and I love to drink in the scent while I’m snuggling her.

I think we’ll all be ready for naptime soon…at least I hope so 🙂

Beautiful photo of my dear grand-daughter!
I am praying for you, as you rest, that the clogged duct would flow, unimpeded.
