your breath smells when you wake up in the middle of the night.
you scrunch up your nose when you’re excited or frustrated. And the huffy thing you do.
you giggle & smile so big when I come in to rescue you from your crib in the mornings.
you rub my necklace between your fingers while you’re falling asleep. My Mama (BB) gave me that necklace.
you smell lathered in Johnson’s Baby Lotion. And in the bed time lotion too.
your li’l head fits perfectly into the bend of my left arm.
your right leg has one more “roll” than your left leg. I could eat your li’l fat legs up.
that you got my legs. And BB’s legs. They’re much cuter on you than they are on us.
you’ve had bright blue eyes since the moment I saw you. You are always alert and focused. They are almost the same color as BB’s eyes were. Daddy & I both have green eyes, so you must’ve gotten them from her.
you always want me. I hope you always trust me and want me the way you do now.
you are starting to get around. Watching you develop is amazing. Every day is something different. You’re slowly letting go of things and trying to stand and walk on your own.
that you are (almost) always happy. You have such a cheerful personality.
that you are MINE. From your nose to your toes you are mine. You may have Daddy’s forehead, but the rest of you is undeniably me. From your love for avocados to the dimples in your legs. You are stubborn, and strong, and always smiling – just like me.
you get to Daddy as fast as you can with a huge grin when he comes home from work.
you eat. You are an excellent eater, and I hope you remain that way.
you always keep your toes curled. But, sometimes I worry they will always be curled under.
you let me play dress up with you. I want you to have your own style & choices, but I’m going to miss the bows, and pink frilly things.
