What I love about one


Every age is so exciting and fresh, but I love one because...

...everything furry is a dog and says woof woof. Please don't try to pet the squirrels!

...your feet are stinky but in a yummy way that makes me want to smell them

...you think I'm funny

...you learn something new everyday that you want to share with me

...when I come into your room to get you every morning you are happy to see me. You do not try to hide under the blanket, nor do you yell for me to get out. Maybe you can talk to 4 and 7 about that.

...you always choose me over Daddy. Sorry, Daddy, but no one else picks Mommy first, so I'm soakin' this up as long as I can.

...you like my flabby belly enough to hug it, kiss, and try to eat it. Although, I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of the last one.

...four teeth never looked so cute. I'm not sure when the rest are gonna make an appearance, but now that your gums are as calloused as the hands of a 40 year old pro body builder, no need to rush.

...even in the throws of 17 straight days of diarrhea and diaper rash bad enough to nearly earn Mommy a visit from social services, you stayed happy, and smiley, and fun to be around. Let me get diarrhea for 17 days and I (if I'm even alive) would not make for very enjoyable company.

...open mouth kissing was in desperate need of a revival around here. But, we may have to work on developing your closed mouth technique b/c I think you are starting to make visitors uncomfortable with that.

...diaper booty is adorable. I'm sorry I keep singing Baby got Back when you come in the room, but I think your junk in the trunk look is so cute.

...even though you're the youngest you are independent, confident, and a little bossy at times (don't worry #2 will help you with that part).

...I love you.

I love how you captured this.

My one-year-old is just like your #3. Her older sister wasn't, so I've enjoyed and appreciated it so much more than I would have had she been born first.

Thanks for making me smile. I needed it!

Giving away two copies of the movie Extract starring Jason Bateman and Ben Affleck. Contest ends 4/2/10.
