one of my favorite things now is to give little c a bath in his little tub. he hated his baths before when i was having to sponge him down, but now he really loves sitting in the warm water. today, after he managed to pee all over himself during a diaper change (thankfully those occasions are fewer now), i filled his little tub and plunked him in it while washing him down. he is so calm and relaxed after and smells so baby-sweet that i love to scoop him up in a big towel and snuggle him close. these moments won't last forever, so i'm cherishing it while he'll allow me to. before long, i'm sure even a momma's kisses will be embarrassing.
