The first bath.

The first bath, almost three days post surgery. He was excited and did some initial splashing, then he panicked and clung to me.

From a standing position, he grew more confidant.

Drinking from a little cup was a highlight.
We have never really let him practice with drinking from a cup due to fear of his hickman getting wet.

Big sister getting in helped him a lot too.

Now bath times are a favorite and we have to pull him out kicking and screaming.

What a crazy thing to have bath times feel like a luxury and a blessing. We've come a long way on this journey.

PS. The bruises are from him being a crazy toddler and running into everything plus they were showing up more due to him being extra pale (because his hemoglobin was low). 

PPS. Bandages are now off!


  1. Hi Hannah! When my little boy was Watts age he LOVED these little bath boats ( They are wonderful for bath play, plus you can easily throw them in the dishwasher or bleach them so they do not get yucky after being in the tub! We are still using them 4 years later. My family and I have been praying for Watts since he was diagnosed and will continue to keep praying for your sweet little boy!

    (I am friends with Sharon Kivette and Jordan Holbrrok and went to MOPS with Francie Dorich)


    1. Thanks Laura! I'll have to look up those boats!
