post-bath exhaustion

today was monumental!  approximately 1 year and 2 months ago, we gave this girl a bath. it was tough. she hated it. she hated us. she even hated the cookie afterwards. today she jumped in the tub all by herself and enjoyed her bath!  what an amazing transformation!!!  obviously, that made for a very hard day!!!

oh!  did i hear a crumb drop?

she was waiting ever-so patiently as we were enjoying dinner on the patio. not a peep, not a bat of an eyelash, not a whimper, no circling around the table, no slobbering, not even a pouty look. then, the minute the doodlebug dropped a potato chip (on the table), this head popped up. she was absolutely expecting that morsel to be given to her!!
