We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

Bath Time

Alder came and found me after his nap. He just crawled across the house and announce the end of his nap. When I came over and gave him a hug and put more soy milk in his bottle he happily went off for a while. He is such an independent soul.

Since we are seeing Grandma and Grandpa and other assorted family tomorrow it seemed a good time to bathe him. Water is his place, he was born in the water, loves to be in the water, especially when we join him. Of course the sinks too small so he had to content himself with a soap bottle and the sprayer hose.

Afterwards, he found his favorite spatula. Life is good when you have your favorite kitchen utensil in hand.

I should learn from him to be so easily joyous. To experience each thing completely before going on to the next. I have so much to learn from my son.

We used to bath J occasionally in the kitchen sink, much easier on the back. You have so much to look forward to, it keeps getting better.
