Afterbath















I held his hands and he walked to the tub. He lifted his leg and tried to step into it. He loves the bath. The moment he sits down, he grabs for a toy and splashes with his free hand. I let him play while I bathe him. I ask (and sign), "Are you finished?" and he shakes his head "NO". When he's had enough he will hold out his arms for me to pick him up. Somehow, he feels smaller without clothes and I wrap his slippery, wet body in a towel and hug him tight for warmth.

Satch has a family of rubber ducks to play with in his bath. One of them, by Munchkin, has a temperature sensitive bottom that turns white when the water is too hot. Satchel really likes the floating fish thermometer (pictured). I still triple check by testing the water on my arm. Satchel also gets a kick out of the bath critters that his Great-Great aunt and uncle gave him.
