Lately, when Noah is done with his bath he likes to dry himself off with his towel and then let me help him get dressed. I remember a time not too long ago that I would scoop him up out of the tub in the same towel and get to dry him off and help him get dressed. So is the life of a Momma whose youngest is growing from my baby into a boy. Sigh.
So, tonight he is drying himself off and he drops his towel to survey his body to see which parts were still wet and in need of more drying off. He reaches down and gives himself* a good squeeze and declares his boy parts still wet. He then proceeds to shimmy and shake himself and his boy parts, checking one more time and declaring himself dry.
Sigh. He is growing up and now not in need of his Momma to dry him after his bath and not afraid to grab himself in front of her.
