Daddy's Song Writing

So today I found something that Jared had written in an old notebook.  I asked him what it was and he said he wrote it one night during Caitlyn's colic days.  We used to sing to her to try and get her to stop crying.  I thought this was so sweet....

Because she always takes care of me
When I'm sick, hungry and tired, she loves me
My mommy loves me with all of her big heart
She lets me play in the bath tub with my ducky
She makes me laugh when she blows in my face and
holds me in the air

He never finished it.  Then he drew hearts all over the bottom of the page.  Sleep deprivation will do funny things to a person!  The thing is that usually he was the one that would get her to calm down and to sleep.  She would fall asleep on his legs for periods of time longer than any other place during those days and nights.  I am so happy we are past that and we now have the happiest little girl!

Celebrating 32!

Today I turn 32.  Just another number!  I actually like to celebrate my birthday all week.  I think I need more than just one day! But today I took the day off work.  Aunt Beth and I took Caitlyn to the zoo.  I had sushi rolls from HyVee for lunch.  I got sunburned while at the zoo.  We came home and Caitlyn took a nap.  I would have too...but I'm a horrible nap taker.  I filled Caitlyn's pool so that she could go swimming in her little yellow polka dot bikini!  Then Jared took me to dinner at Red Lobster.  Yum! 

I am so thankful for another year.  My life is good.  I have great family and friends.  I have a wonderful husband who loves me for me (even when I'm driving him crazy).  I have my beautiful, loving, sweet, tantrum throwing, hug and kiss giving baby (toddler) girl.  And we're embarking on another journey to try and grow our family.  What more could a girl ask for?
