Morning Walk

In this season, a long walk in the morning sun means a long mid-day nap. As Edie grows, she's teaching and reshaping me into this slower-living being I don't recognize,  and I love it. I'm prone to missing life because my mind is always onto the next thing, but letting her lead (by letting her stop every two steps to examine whatever she finds interesting) on something like a daily walk has really pushed me to notice my surroundings.  

But my eyes are always drawn back to her. She is so fun and her imagination is just exploding in the last few months. Every walk includes calling Dada on rocks, leaves, and sticks and practicing her new skill of jumping with both feet. "I kangaroo! Hop, hop, hop. Mama, hop, too!"
