life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful.
i remember this day so well. it was actually not very peaceful although this was a sweet moment. charlie was in hawaii and ellie was in the stage where if she didn't get her first morning nap in then she screamed the rest of the day and didn't sleep until bedtime. babies are strange. BUT i remember that it was warm and march and we actually played a bit on the deck outside, avery threw the ball to dunlin for a long time, and avery and i ate chocolate chip cookies that my mom had mailed to us. ellie spent a good amount of time in the moby wrap and i listened to free by zac brown band about a hundred times.
