So Brent tells me that, according to Gran, if you plant a baby's umbilical cord stump under a rose bush, he'll have rosy cheeks. Now, we don't have any rose bushes, so Brent, the one with the green thumb in this relationship, decided to plant it under our Japanese maple tree. (Hmmmm, what on earth would that do to him?) It's one of those things we've been meaning to do since it fell off when he was 3 weeks old, but it took until October to actually get it done. Lucky for us the weather has been so mild.
We're hoping that Joseph thrives like this tree, which we planted to celebrate our 1st anniversary in this house. And in the summer, hopefully we'll plant a special tree just for him.
