head, shoulders, knees, and toes

there's nothing cuter than a man in an apron.
this morning i laid in bed and felt the baby tapping me.
for the first time.
i kept wondering if it was an arm.
an elbow.
a foot.
a head.
it's still just as magical this time as it was the first time i felt brennan and max move.
amazing little miracles.

to make up for the four hours of tv i let him watch this afternoon.
after the hour he watched this morning.
