I Liked the Way you Looked Today

I liked the way you looked today.

I liked how you went upstairs to dress yourself and then called down excitedly, “Are you ready to see my surprise fashion clothes??”

I liked when you impatiently tugged and nuzzled at my arm during lunch when I was trying to chat with a friend.  It’s hard to stay annoyed when you are giving me upper arm hickies.

I liked how hard you worked on the sight word flash cards.  I’ve never seen such fidgeting and short term memory in my life…but I know you were trying.

I liked how you ate all of your spaghetti squash and six lima beans.

I liked the “joke” that you made up and how you giggled your way through telling it to me.  “What do you call a strawberry with no straw?  A BERRY!”

I liked the way you looked today, Bailey.  And I hope I never forget it.

An amazing compliment from my personal blogging hero! xoxo

Caroline and Kate

Once upon a time, I had the pleasure of meeting a 4-year-old gal named Caroline.

Almost 3 years have passed, and sweet Caroline is now a big sister to the incredible Kate!  These two little ladies kept me thoroughly entertained as we stomped around the Houston Arboretum.  There was drama!  Comedy!  Action!  I was blown away by their intelligence and spunk.

Can’t wait until we cross paths again, my fun friends!

Ashton and Elon

Oh, boys.  ♥
I adore newborn babies.  So when you give me two of them and snuggle them all up together and let me watch them squeak and wriggle and sigh and grin and love on each other…well folks, that’s what I call a good day at the office.
Alyson and Daniel, it has been such a joy to spend time with you as you transitioned from radiant parents-to-be to a full fledged family of four!
You should be so, so proud.

R2D..3?:)These teddy belonged to Alyson and Daniel when they were young children…can you believe they had the EXACT SAME bears??

Talk about meant to be!
