Bath Time

Lately I've been giving the kiddo's their baths at the same time but tonight I planned to give Callie hers and then bathe Cain afterwards.  Cain was standing at the side of the tub as I ran Callie's water and he kept trying to climb in so I told him if he could undress himself then I'd go ahead and bathe him too.  To my surprise, he started undressing all by himself.  I know this doesn't seem like a big deal to most people but having Cain has made me not take anything for granted.  I absolutely love when he does something new.  And since Cain still doesn't talk much I never know what he can understand so it was fun to realize he understood me when I told him to undress and he actually did it!  

This picture is an unusual sight in our house.  Cain rarely touches his sister.  At this moment he was actually helping me wash her hair but normally he is trying to move away from her.  He is very good at ignoring Callie which makes me sad.  

Speaking of baths...we had a very interesting bath night week before last.  I bathed both Callie and Cain at the same time and when it was time to get Callie out I started draining the water and left Cain in the tub as the water drained out.  As I was putting a diaper on Callie I noticed a streak run past me.  Cain had climbed out of the tub and was running out the bathroom door.  As soon as he hit the hardwood floor he slipped down.  Of course my wild man didn't let him slip stop him.  He jumped right up and kept running.  I quickly got Callie's diaper on her and ran to follow Cain.  When I got to him he was standing in the middle of the living room peeing on our hardwood.  When he saw me he kept running again and slipped down in his mess.  Needless to say, there is never a dull moment around here and it was time for Cain's 2nd bath of the night!

He's my little wild man!

And she's my sweet little princess!

Hilarious story! I love that you have the baby tub in a bath tub of water. That is exactly how we did it. Made it so much easier!!
