Haven's Cuteness

You are so beautiful, my baby. I love your wrinkle your nose and then blow out of it when you are happy to see someone. You love to pull off your socks and play with your toes. Alot of times while you are in your carseat, I'll look back and you have both feet in your hands and you are talking to them. I don't know what you are saying, but they must please you a great deal.

You are starting to play back with your daddy and me. When mommy is tickling you, you bit her cheek with those two sharp little teeth you've got. Yesterday your daddy chased you around on the floor on his hands and knees. You would crawl by him at warp speed making sure he saw you so he could chase you. You were screaming you had so much fun. I had a bit of trouble getting you to bed after that.

You also love to lick the bottom of my shoes. Especially the brown flats. I've tried numerous times to take them away, but you insist on treating them like lolly pops. I guess it's no worse than crawling around on the floor all day and sticking your fingers in your mouth afterwards. You're gonna have a great immune system.

I can't explain how much I love you, little girl. You are ornery and clingy and so cute right now.

You were really tired tonight. When you are tired you don't do so well in your chair while I'm feeding you. At first you are OK, but then you get bored and want out. So, you started screaming. I told you, "no," very sternly. You gave me a look and then started fussing. Then you screamed again when I didn't let you out. Daddy came in from the other room and told you no. You kept screaming and we kept telling you no. After about the fifth time, you beat us to the punch. You let out another scream and then started shaking your head no. I don't know how we're ever going to discipline you...when you are being naughty, you make us laugh. Your uncle David used to make your grandma laugh and he would get out of spankings. It used to make me so mad. But, now I think I understand.

Sweet Sweet Haven

This morning was the first morning that you actually cried when your daddy gave you to mommy. Usually I'm the preference over anyone, but today, you really wanted to play with daddy, and he had to get dressed for work. He gave you to me and you started bawling. I'm not sure I like being 2nd best, but I think you made his morning. Except when he had to leave. He kept delaying so he could hold you. I've never seen a man so in love with his baby girl. I think you are on the way to being a daddy's girl.

Let Me Entertain You

You were such a hambone last night, my Haven. Lately you've been shaking your head "no." Sometimes it is when we say no, but sometimes we're not sure why you're doing it. Well, last night you were supposed to be in bed, but you were a little keyed up so I took you into the bedroom to mellow out on the bed with daddy and me. You sat up on the bed and shook your head no so enthusiastically that you fell over. Daddy and I laughed so hard. We couldn't help it. You noticed that you had amused us and sat up on the bed again, laughed, and fell over. And you kept doing it. It was the first time you purposefully entertained us. And, boy, did you. You made our night. We have the cutest little girl in the whole world. How we love you!
