a special moment

Peaberry's umbilical cord fell off ... on my watch!

It was 2 AM---I was taking "first shift" with the baby. I squealed with glee when I opened her up for a change, and out fell her cord. Amy was hoping it would happen with me instead of her (since it grosses her out). And we both were hoping it would happen sooner rather than later (it seemed to be taking forever!).

I figured the moment was photo-worthy, since Mom was missing it.

And while I knew Amy was skeeved out by it, I didn't think I should make the official decision to throw the cord out. So I put it in a snack-sized ziplock bag and left it on the counter! Amy quickly pitched it in the morning.

Good thing pictures last forever...
