We had a lot of firsts yesterday. Charlie went to the beach for the first time. It was a gorgeous day in the high 70’s, so we went to the dog beach at Coronado Island to enjoy it. Charlie, our California girl who was rocking an oversized sun hat, put her feet on the sand for the first time.
Later at the beach, I went to change Charlie’s diaper. When I took off her onesie, I found Charlie’s umbilical cord in the folds of her clothing. I was just about to throw it away, when Shawnee said she wanted to keep it in order to prevent it from being thrown away at the beach. No word yet on where the umbilical cord burial will take place.
