It may be gloomy but...


Today is a gloomy day and it just makes me feel so... gloomy. Just as I was thinking that I wish I could just cuddle up with a blanket Emerson woke up from her 3 hour afternoon nap with a smile on her beautiful face. As I lifted her out of her crib she wrapped her sweet little arms around my neck and squeezed so tight. At that moment I realized that it really doesn't matter what the weather is like outside, inside the sun is always shining. I get to wake up to 3 of the most perfect people. They love me no matter what is happening outside. So...
My little tinkerbell, Emerson, I love the little face you pull when you are being told to finish your dinner or to be nice to your big sister. You wrinkle up your sweet little nose and smile a mischevious smile. I love the way you love to hug and kiss. I love to watch you look at a book. I can see your little mind working on overdrive. I love that when I look at you your eyes sparkle. I think you are so beautiful.
Aniston, my princess. I love that when you think that I am not watching, you pretend to be the mom. I hear you say the same things to your babies that I say to you. I love the way you play so sweet with your little sister. I love that you dress her up, help her fill her purse, and help her load her babies in her stroller. You amaze me everyday at how smart you are getting. I love it that you can read to me now. I love that at your t-ball game you chased after a ball and beat all the boys. You picked up the ball and then looked at the boys like "you snooze, you loose". I love that you love to fish with your dad, because he loves it that you do!
And last to my sweet husband. First of all I love you for taking such good care of us. I love that you love your girls and I love that you love to hug and kiss them. I love that you never roll your eyes in disgust when I say "I was thinking that I want to make this or I want to do this...". I love that you do all the things that I hate to (like yard work). I love that we have remodeled the house together and survived it. I love that no matter what happens everyday that I know that you love me for all my flaws (like my lack of keeping up on the laundry and for my stack of magazines on my nightstand) . I love that you have made it possible for me to stay home and raise our girls. I am thankful everyday for you!
I think that we are the perfect fit!


This pic really has no relevance to this post, except that I thought that it was funny. When your mom is constantly hiding behind a camera, what else is there to do. She will either cooperate and pose and pull goofy smiley faces or she does this. Which is better??

I love it when I get hugs and kisses. It makes all the messes and tantrums way more than worth it.

You are sooo inspirational. The words you speak is the reason why I love to read your blog every day. Your a great mom, wife and person. I don't have to be around you everyday to know this about you! Just like our WONDERFUL Grandma Verna.

What a very sweet post. I agree, the hugs and kisses are the best, and especially after a good nap!
