Bathtub Chronicles

Same boy. Same tub. So many changes.

D has always enjoyed his bath, and somewhere along the line we turned some of his baths into photoshoots.

One day about a year ago he announced that he was taking a shower, and to my partner's credit, she took him at his word and helped him get the water temperature right before he took the big leap of faith and stood under it. It mostly seemed like he wanted to prove that he could do it. As soon as he figured out that showers were mostly about efficiency, he went right back to baths.

I don't know how many more tub pictures I'll get; eventually I'm sure his modesty will kick in and that will be that. In the meantime, though, I have these bathtub chronicles (the last one was taken just a few days ago):

(Thanks to the women of Sunday Scribblings
for their continuing inspiration.)

A chronicle in photos, I love it! How nice to see the ways your boy has grown, and yet in every photo it is the same sweet smile :)

Hee hee! These are too cute! And bubbles on the head always make for a great pic!

So cute. Yes, I remember with each kid when the modesty kicked in and that was that. Enjoy him while he's young . . . he'll be so big before you know it.

I was drawn in by the "Bathtub Chronicles" title thinking of bathtub reading and instead I broke out in a grin looking at what you shared. Adorable!
What a delightful chronicle post!
This is my first timew with Sun. Scribblings and I'm thoroughly all the people I'm reading.
He's lucky to be so loved by you both. :)
P.S. I kid you not: the word verificatoin has "mom" in it! That is cool. "CVMom."

Half of this young man's DNA comes from you, is that right? (I'm betting yes. Forgive me if you mentioned it somewhere and I missed it.)
