I love today.

Even though I am behind on the housework and these blogs of mine (oops!), or despite the fact that I just spent my lunch on cleaning up the raw turkey and it's brine I knocked all over the kitchen floor and "enjoyed" myself as I wrote a letter to the Better Business Bureau (remember the whole cell phone blog from before...yep...still not resolved)...I heart today.


This is what I woke up to:

A happy little girl, jumping crazy in her crib.

She couldn't stop laughing, which in turn made me laugh. So I joined in.

The peels of laughter continued and I took pictures of our silliness.

I'm happy that Edana FINALLY has a room to play in.
We were mean parents and had our guest bed in her room before.
Not anymore.

So much room to play in.

She's loves it.
And I love that.

Why else do I love today?

Larry bought me flowers last night, so I put them all over the house today

Any other reason?

I played with playdoh.

Who else can say they played with playdoh for their dayjob?
We pretended to be "Ace of Cakes"
I like Edana's the best, though I must admit, those lime green candles on mine rock. ;)

I love being a mom. I love being her mom.

Did I mention?

Comment Hug! Anyway . . . it's been awhile since I've read anything-I always love your posts. Creepy photo with Edana (the orb), and I keep forgetting how young you guys are. I didn't even get married until I was 23. I miss you guys (one week and counting) and I think it's truly fitting that your one year old can say scawie-mine didn't at that age, but I didn't watch horror flicks either. :)

Edana is a DOLL! I love that first pic of her. They are so cute first thing, huh? I also love the music on your blog, which is a rarity for me. I'll admit I usually click 'pause' instantly on others' blogs, but you've always got something fun and unique to listen to. Thanks for helping me expand my diminished music knowledge, and for having such good taste!! Also loved the message for Larry in legos. You are creative, Jen!!

I love you so much! I love being her aunt so there's little doubt in my mind that you love being her much more fun I'm sure! I can't wait to have days like that...*sigh* so excited!
