to my baby girl

10. I love the way you cross your arms and tuck them under the straps when I get you out of your car seat or high chair. You’re so helpful.

9. I love your wild curls when you first get out of bed and they’re all everywhere. I hope they are never tamed (although I’m sure you’ll very much disagree at some point).

8. I love how you wave and say “bye-bye” (although I don't like leaving you). The neat thing is that I think you really might mean it.

7. I love how you play peek-a-boo and get so excited. It’s so neat to see how you grow up and figure things out. Not so fast though.

6. I love it when you say “Da-da.” Even if you don’t mean me, it sounds great.

5. I love the way you pass your passi (or whatever you’re holding) from one hand to the other so your arm can go through your sleeve when I’m dressing you. You’re so smart.

4. I love how you cuddle when you’re so sleepy right before I put you to bed at night. It’s the only time you’ll lay still, but I’ll take it.

3. I love your smile. Especially when you’re really happy and it’s huge. Your mouth gets so wide and your eyes squint all up and your little dimple shows. It’s wonderful.

2. I love your laugh. Your giggle is too cute, but it’s even better when I can get you shrieking. A fantastic sound.

1. The number one thing I love about you is your kiss noise. You are so sweet to give kisses so freely. And my favorite part is the little “Emm-Ma” sound you make. Lifts my spirits every time.
