dear mind- please take a picture

my goodness.

sometimes i can't believe how stinking cute my baby A is..... she really isn't a "baby" anymore if you get stuck on that kind of thing, and that is exactly why she is so. darn. cute.

it is all about the simplest of things: watching her point to everything with her inquiring little sigh and shake her head no if she doesn't want a cup of milk- it's watching her stack books and marvel over how the pages actually turn- it's giggling at her new found need to hold TWO of everything so that if she finishes her cracker (or drops it down the heating vent like today) she is frantic to fill her empty hand with another. she is blissful anywhere. she is bliss to watch.

this age is when the personality really starts to shine through (and believe me, she has some ground to cover to keep up with her silly silly big brother) and i see a sassy glimpse of the terrible toddlerness that is to come. i know it will come- in fact i forget what it is like to just plain enjoy my kids all the time because i am endlessly correcting, corralling and soothing the perpetual insanity of my three year old. like i said, i know it is coming- i just hope that when we get there- in the throes of tantrums and attitudes that i can close my eyes and remember what her sweet days were like.

something tells me i will remember

We went to a BBQ this past week, and there were so many sweet (immobile!) babies laying around on blankets, etc. They weren't begging to go to the playground or running around or climbing up rocks. It made me feel like I totally didn't appreciate that time enough =P

Just catching up on the blog hop blogs and I wanted to say hi! I was already following you, actually! We also have a Facebook fan page at http://www.facebook.com/aiasdotca that you should check out! We always like and follow back, just leave us a note <3 (Forgive me if you've already added me).
