Sprout and her umbilical cord have officially separated (I think they're citing irreconcilable differences). The hospital had told us it would only take 7 to 10 days (post birth), but little Sproutie's cord held on for an amazing 17 days. Which is only noteworthy because it represents the amount of time necessary to make Mom and Dad concerned that they were doing something wrong.
Stay tuned this weekend for pictures and accounts of Sprout's first bath, which if it goes anything like those sponge baths we've occasionally subjected her too - well, let's just say it won't be pretty.
