One of my favorite times of the day is Declan's bathtime. It is the moment that he ceases to be a sticky running toddler and transforms into a cherubic merman. It is so nice to have him step into the bathroom and become excited because he knows what is coming next. He knows that in just a minute he gets to step into the warm water and splash to his heart's desire.

The world slows down a little as he actually stays in one place for an elongated period of time. Since we now FINALLY actually have a bathtub for him we have been experimenting with bubbles. The first time he freaked out a little and kept rubbing them in his eyes. He is now a pro at wading through the bubbles to find the toys and cups buried underneath. I love being able to soak my feet at the end of the day while he splashes and pours water and fills cups from the running spout. He knows that once it's full enough if he flips the switch down so the water levels lowers... then he can get more running water again. He's pretty smart.

I love watching his chubby belly swell as he sits and become concave again as he kneels and works so hard to fill all of his cups. His wet curls stuck to his head kill me as do the droplets in his eyelashes.

Don't worry... I'll definitely get some pictures of bathtime up soon.
