Naval Exposure

Lucy's belly button stump fell off yesterday. On one hand, I'm glad. No more brown scabby raisinette getting in the way of the diaper all the time. But on the other hand, I'm a little sad. The last of the cells that once held us together are now dead. It's one of the first (of millions) of tiny steps she'll forever be taking away from me. Which is a good thing, really. Just good in a way that makes me want to weep a little!

Wonderful...and poignant. Great shot too.
Oh by the way, I've tagged you for a meme.

What an adorable girl! And a sweet sentiment too. Hopefully she doesn't grow up too fast!

y is adorable. I bawled when Levi's belly button stump fell off for the very same reason.
