    Ohmygod TOO CUTE! I can’t think of anything else to write here that doesn’t involve the word “cute”, lots of exclamation points, or non-words like, “awwww!” and “Eeeee!”, so I’ll leave it there.

    Great video, you’ve got to love his playful curiosity. He just can’t figure out what to do with that tub can he?
