You taught yourself how to do a somersault last week. And after each one, you yell, "tee-hi!" and I'm not sure why. But I love it. You're such a little stud muffin.
Dear patent leather oxfords,
I'm so glad we found each other at Savers today. You make my feet oh-so happy.
I am more than okay that you manage to sneak into everything I bake during the lovely months of October and November. The Pumpkin Snickerdoodle recipe my friend Adriana shared with me was scrumdiddlyumptious.
You are leaving for Chile tomorrow. TOMORROW you'll be in Chile. ¡Buena suerte! We love you so much, and you're in our prayers daily. Oh, and Brooks loved the "yewwow happy" sticker you put on the back of your letter you sent us a couple weeks ago. :)
Dear Mumford and Sons,
I'm always in the mood for your incredible music. Sometimes it gives me goosebumps it's so good.
Dear tiny tooth,
You made your grand entrance in my sweet daughter's mouth last week. And you have been causing her pain, fevers, and loss of sleep...you're lucky you're so darn cute.
This parenting gig is tricky. I love that you're my partner in it...and even though we differ in our parenting style sometimes, I appreciate that you trust my mother's instinct. I love you forever.
Brooks and I thank you for making the 757 miles that stand between us and my parents (aka the awesome, incredible, always-willing-to-go-find-the-cats-so-that-Brooks-can-say-"meow"-and-pet-the-screen-to-get-his-kitty-fix Grandma and Grandpa Stum) not seem like such a great distance.
