Raddest Valentime Ever!

Sure hope y'all had a great Valentine's Day. Mine was pretty sweet, although we had to celebrate a day early, not that we mind. I got candy and flowers and very romantic things and we went for sushi.

And I got this rad valentine which is probably my favoriteist ever...

When I woke up this morning, I rolled over and started to get all my morning kisses from Madelyn. Her little puss is so cute and she makes lips likes she is trying to kiss, and so you just have to kiss it back. Well, I do.

Anyway, today she decided kisses are funny and she's really smiling. There have been smiles since she was born and a few of them really didn't seem to be gas or poop related, but they were few and far between. These new smiles she gives with her whole face. Her eyes light up, and she gums up a cute one, and I just melt. And she can give them over and over all day long.

Oh, this I like.

She has been a little bit fussy lately and I was so frustrated when it started but now I am starting to get it - she isn't fussy, she is expressing herself and that is just what things sound like right now. And the good news is this expression is becoming more dynamic because she is learning at ludicrous speed. And now she is learning to express not only discomfort, but happy feelings and familiarity, and content.

Which is way less frustrating, in fact it seems like a little miracle . She seems like a little miracle - this little person who loves to snuggle and stare at me and coo and smile and fall asleep on my chest. She is so little, and it blows my mind that one day she will be as big as me.

I feel like I have been away for a year. She has grown up in 3 days.
