Happiness is...

* watching you play, stacking blocks, knocking them down, making chaos (your favorite). * hearing you run around the house. Your little steps are music to my ears.

* helping you frantically get undressed the moment you hear me say 'shower' or 'bath'. We now have to spell out those words to avoid disappointing you when it's not time.

* taking a walk and receiving flirtly smiles from you along the way. You totally know just how cute you are.

* finding you rolling around with soft stuffed animals behind the couch. You love cuddling.

* curling up with you and your blankie and humming Brahm's Lullaby in my arms.

...or watching you do it all on your own.

Happiness is... being with you.
