Snuggles On Demand

This little girl melts my heart more and more every day.  For awhile now she's been raising her arms up when we reach to pick her up.  But today she started something new, which takes the cake for the sweetest thing ever.  For now at least.  We were sitting on the bed, and she was playing with her piano.  This is her FAVORITE toy, and it happens to have the worlds most obnoxious microphone on it.  She said, "mom mom" and when I looked over at her, she raised her arms up.  As soon I picked her up she snuggled all over me and gave me kisses.  Sweetest. Baby. Ever. 

This is huge for me.  Of course she has her way of communicating that she's hungry, or wants milk, or is bored, wet. etc.  But this is a big one in my eyes.  I'm so incredobly proud of her.  Every day truly brings something new. 

I have a bunch of photos to share, but I'll admit, the cold weather has me slacking a little bit.  By the time we get back to the hotel, the last thing I feel like doing is messing with the camera or memory cards.  So here's a few cell phone pics.  She polished off an entire pancake at Cracker Barrel this morning.  We're talking about a pancake the size of the plate!  And she threw Cheerios every where today, and was quite pleased with herself. 

Mmmm....crackers, how come I don't eat these more often?

Oopsies mom!  Sorry...hehehehe.


  1. Precious! And Ellie has that bottom outfit (in 3-6 AND 6-9) and it's her favorite. Because it's my favorite to dress her in, because I like to snuggle her!
