The greatest, most terrifying 1:25 minutes of my day

My dear little Poopy Pants,
Peanut Butter,
Hannah Banana,
Stink Butt,
Uber Goober,

I love you.
     All of you.
     Your choo choos and bock bocks
     Bed head and yogurt-crusted brow
     Love songs and lullabies
     Shrieks and giggles
The way you twirl you hair when you drink milk
     Smile when you're in trouble
     Run away when I say "come here."
     Hug my face and say "awww"
     Kiss everyone in the room good night
          Even the people you don't know
I'm going to miss when you stop dragging your dollies by the arm
     Their plastic heads black from the pavement
     Stop calling the cat "titty"
     Bananas "nana"
     Oranges "ornch"
     The way your diaper crinkles when you run
     When your ability to jump with both feet in the air
          No longer thrills the way it did
          When all of your toes
          Still fit in my mouth.

Love,
Mama

I think I want to copy and save that b/c it captures how I feel about my wee lass so well too.
