I love this kid!

Have I said yet how much I LOVE my little girl? I love her more than I love anything else in the world. And for the simplest of reasons....

- I love the way she tenderly reaches out with just one finger to rub at the fuzzy patches in her touch-and-feel books

- I love how she is such a great traveler ... we take car trips (3 hours each way) to see our parents fairly frequently and Kate just gazes out the window, plays with her bunny, or dozes on and off. She's such a good sport.

- I love how she sings opera at the top of her lungs when she's in her jumpy seat.

- I love when I am rinsing her hair in the tub and the water runs down her face and she just looks at me and blinks like, "Mama....I think you got me wet!"

- I love how she cranes her neck to look for people or things ... like when she's sitting on the bed and daddy crawls around on the floor to pop up and say "peek-a-boo".

- I love when I go in to get her from a nap and she has rolled onto her belly and she gets so excited to see me that she starts kicking her legs and flapping her arms like she's swimming.

- I love how carefully she studies new objects - pinching them and turning them slowly to see it from all angles.

- I love how she can learn new things by watching me ... like how to clap or wave.

- I love how hard she laughs when I fly her around the house to chase the dogs.

- I love when she lights up and grins as soon as daddy walks in the door.

- I love how she frantically waves her arms to splash in the bathtub.

There are thousands of more reasons why I love her so much... each day I find something new to appreciate about her. :)
