it is clear that my love for the world outside is being passed on to augustus. whenever we need to breathe easier and find solitude, i take him outside and it's as though we are floating through the earth.
last week, i took gus to one of my favorite nurseries and we played hide and seek in the rose bushes and sat inside a giant hydrangea grove. he splashed in the fountains until i had to change his clothes and we noticed all the bees having lunch in the lavender.
days like this with my baby, it's who i am, it's what i'll remember the most.
