we brush our teeth and wash our hair

today i woke up to some "wahhhh wahhhhh"-ing from the closet. not unlike any other day. so i went in the closet and picked up my pee-drenched precious baby from her beautiful crib that no one ever sees. after cleaning and changing, we rocked and fed in the dark. her big eyes staring up at me, i could tell she was up for the day. no sleeping-in this saturday i tell myself. 
this saturday feels different because i can tell that it really is beginning to be fall. the window in the kitchen has been open all night and the draft is chilly. i relish in it. i dream of going running in it right then. i plan a picnic at the park for later. 
this fall saturday i want to be grateful. how many blessings can one person hold? even right now as i type and look around at my tiny little home, i can name hundreds of things i'm so glad i don't have to live without. 
i'm as happy as i've ever been and i'm going to have a picnic in the park with spencer and gretta.

this dress is handmade by Grandma McKown herself. vintage crocheted doily on the bottom and i'm in love. 


  1. UMM yeah, She is probably the best-dressed baby I've ever seen. Where do you get all her clothes? She is beautiful. I want to see her crib! :0)

  2. So cute. I love the way you wrote this post.

  3. And I'm grateful for you Mollie! That dress is amazing, can Grandma McKown be paid to make more dresses?! Haha!

  4. That dress is awesome! It's beautiful and will make a great hand me down for generations to come! =]
