When we took off his diaper and laid him in the tub, he immediatly started screaming and his entire body went stiff. But then I poured the first cup of warm water over his chest and he shut right up. He was in heaven after that. Sawyer LOVES baths. He just lays there all relaxed and calm. As long as you keep that water coming, he's good to go. We discovered after his first bath that his hair dries into a little curly mohawk on the top of his head. This dang kid just keeps getting cuter!!
