And I'm HAPPY. : )

So, it feels wonderful to wake up and have my happy feelings all back where they belong. And it has been a perfect day so far - my home is clean, my daughter has been happily playing, I chatted with my mom, went on a satisfyingly hilly walk in the sunshine, picked up a few incidental groceries and then scored fresh corn and peaches at the produce stand by our apartments, and after a great lunch and Natalie playing by the dishwasher while I made dinner preparations, she is down for a nap and I am free to relax for a while. And I'm choosing to do so by putting my happiness down in writing so I can remember how it feels when I'm back in bomb-mode (which happens every three days or so...Austin has gotten good at predicting and steering clear).
Natsby and I must have played peekaboo for half an hour earlier - we were both having a BALL! We chased each other around the couch, her giggling hysterically when I popped out suddenly, and trying frantically to crawl onto the cushions when I came around the corner. I LOVE playing with my baby girl - making her laugh with very apparent glee is about the best feeling in the world. I feel like we are best friends - we do everything together. I love telling her what's going on outside on our walks (now we are crossing the street, don't forget to look both ways!) or when I'm making dinner (look, this is a yellow bell pepper, Mommy loves these but Daddy hates them!). I can't WAITTT for her to start talking. Except yes I can, because that sort of freaks me out - she doesn't need to grow up any faster than she already is!
