Loves today

Every day I think, at least a thousand times, how much I love something. For example, I'll think, I love how Cali does that weird little laugh when I finally figure out what she wants. And then I think I should write it down so I don't forget. I never do. But today, I thought I would share the things I have noticed that I love.

I love how Carson can make me laugh, no matter how upset I am.

I love how Cali calls everything either a horse, a puppy, or a kitty. And the monkey, which I would have thought would be in the puppy category, is a horse.

I love Carson's face when he's playing pretend. He gets soooo in to character.

I love Sisi's laugh. Her real laugh, not the courtesy laugh you get when she doesn't really think you're funny but doesn' t want to make you feel bad. You can't help but smile when you hear it.

I love that chocolate makes Cali as happy as it does me.

I love Sisi's hair. Dang, it's gorgeous! Why don't I have hair like that?

I love to watch Cali sleep. She's so pretty. She reminds me of an angel.

I love the way she puckers up her lips to say no. And how she says no when she's doing something she knows she isn't supposed to.

I love my house when it's clean.

I love how serious Cali is when she's telling me stories in her own little language.

I love listening to Blair swear in the morning, usually while he's still asleep. He's so cute when he's grumpy.

Like I said, every day I notice a thousand things that I love and should write down. These are just some of them I've noticed today, but they make me happy.

I love that you took the time to write this down. Years from now you will cherish every word and the memories they bring. Far to often we forget to stop and enjoy life and capture the memories. But you know all that. I love to hear how your family is doing and the funny things that the kids do. I love kids- they are pure entertainment. Of course we don't have any yet so it is a lot easier for me to laugh. For example, I find it hilarious when I an downstairs and I hear Zach (my sisters almost 3 year old) yell at his day and tell him whats up. I'm sure his dad doesn't think it is as funny as I do. :)

PS I love the pictures you chose for your blog header and Cali's love of chocolate. Cali is a smart girl- chocolate can make almost everything a little bit better. :)
