How I Love You

Darling, Haven. You are taking a nap right now, and I was thinking about how much I adore you. I never knew you could love someone so much. I love your daddy. When I think about him, he makes me smile. And, I feel the same about you but different. There is no one in the whole world like you, little girl. I am so blessed that God gave you to me. So blessed.

Here are some of the things that I love about you: the way you crinkle up your nose when you are being naughty. You look so wicked I just love it. The way you decide you don't want to eat something and throw it on the floor. If it gets stuck in your hand you keep shaking it until it comes off. The way you will pull up on my legs to get me to hold you and then you will do circles around me, bumping your head on the kitchen cabinet knobs, until you are so ticked off that I have to pick you up. The way you lay belly down on the floor and sweep your hands back and forth like you are swimming. The way you look at Trudy Lou and Sophie and smile. They always make you smile. Except for yesterday when you were feeding one of them squash and they bit your finger. That did not make you smile. My absolute favorite thing is how you dance. Your grandpa said it best--you look like the beat has taken you over and you can't quite stop it. I could go on and on. You are only 10 months old...your personality is just developing. I can already tell that you are going to be ornery. That's good--my favorite quality in a person.
