The best gift evah

Two years ago today I saw my daughters heart beat for the first time. It was my first ultrasound and even though I had a technician shoving that damn wand up my crotch, the moment I heard that sounds and saw that little peanut bopping around I was hooked. That is the only occassion in my adult life where I spontaneously started crying. I didn't expect it, couldn't contain it, but it was amazing.

To go from one minute of understanding that I was pregnant to actually seeing's really mind blowing. Today as we opened gifts from the Grandparents and I saw those little toes and fingers moving around and that smile, all I could think is tham I'm so lucky to have this little girl as my one true Valentine.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. I hope you feel the love today and take a moment to take it in.

Sirens in the morning

There is nothing like waking up in the wee hours of the morning to the sound of Tornado sirens. It is like a nice big steaming cup of gas station coffee that gives you the runs.

Today is going to be a long day....

Next she will be running for President

Yesterday at 16 months and six days the muffin went potty. She sat down and peed. I'm sure you are all as excited as I am, but to me this is AMAZING.

I promptly signed her up for her SAT's and the presidential race. Her platform is reformed health care, better playgrounds and unlimited sweet potato puffs for all.
