Mark Twain...

said the following....

"Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul."

AND

"A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval."

I love these and I'll explain why later.  For now chew on this and let me know how it hits you.  I'm off to shower while the kids rot their brains out in front of Sesame Street and the baby naps.  Gotta dash!

She's a keeper!


Want to know why we love this baby?  Let me count the ways....  ok, I'll just give you ten.  It's an appetizer, really.  Here goes:

1.) she's really cute.  I mean, just look at that face!
2.) she gives THE  BEST kisses.  She's the only one of my children thus far to love being kissed and to reciprocate the blessing.  *LOVE*
3.) she jabbers constantly in this really cute, non-feminine, guttural growl type noise.  We have no idea what she's saying, but it cracks us up.  Every time.
5.) She sleeps anywhere.  This is an invaluable tool.
6.) She can go all day without a nap, be held up impossibly past her bedtime, and still charm the pants off of anyone. 
7.) She is almost always smiling.  Seriously, we should have named her Joy.  If she's crying, we tend to actually pay attention because she. never. cries.  Never.
8.) Have I mentioned how really cute she is.  Just look at her.  So kissable!
9.) She mimics things we didn't even know we did.  I think she'll probably be our ham.  The class clown, if you will.
10.) Doesn't back down from a fight.  Can give it to big brother and sister as well as she can take it.  She has even been known to provoke a fight or two.  I love that she stands up for herself.

I love this kid!
