Philosophy of bathtime

Jonathan is so serious sometimes. This morning I gave him a bath because he played outside a lot yesterday and this (early!) morning, and he was seriously dirty. :) He submitted without too much protest to being washed, and then settled down happily to explore the running water. He put one hand in the stream, held it there, stared at it, and just contemplated what was happening. For something like 30 seconds. And he did this multiple times. He's also started trying to "catch" the water in his cupped hands and drink it. It doesn't work, but he keeps trying. It's like he knows that it ought to work, somehow. I wish I knew what was going on in our little philosopher’s head!
