Ten things to love about today

Photos taken this afternoon in honor of one of Lucy's favorite bedtime stories, Ten, Nine, Eight by Molly Bang

Ten chubby fingers, nice and brown

Nine tomatoes, rolling all around

Eight blue mugs in straight array

Seven giraffes, waiting to play

Six unmatched socks in a row

Five chocolate cookies, made with peanut butter dough

Four strong hands, two big, two small

Three new candles that smell like fall

Two squirming feet in a tiny heap

One perfect baby, fast asleep

i want this post published as a book so that clara can look at such beautiful pictures every night before bed! lucy lark lives in a sweet world. and the second mismatched sock from the left is one that jeremiah had as a baby exactly! is there any way one of his florida socks could have ended up in your boston laundry? ha!
