This morning she silently crawled out of our bed and into the living room to find me. As she is rounding the corner I hear these sweet little words slip from her (as her daddy calls them) sugar lips, " hi sunshine!" I wanted to sit down and cry for joy. Instead I scooped her up and kissed her all over and returned her sentiments. I have, ever since she was born, greeted her first of all in the morning with either a, " Good morning, sunshine! " or " Good morning, beautiful!" To have your children reciprocate/communicate the overwhelming love we can't help but have for them, back to us, has got to be one of the top ten best feelings, the whole entire world over.

( In case you are wondering, I did in fact bribe her with chocolate chips to get her to sit still, unfortunately it didn't help my pictures to turn out all that clearly. I have the worst luck with that. )

The other thought I had is actually straight from the line of a familiar Christmas carol ...the dawn, of redeeming grace. " I love that. And can't get it off my mine. That is what Christmastime is all about for me.

Your own adorable little elf for Christmas. In the striped jammies, she is vaguely reminiscent of a Cindy Lou Who. ;)

And the Cindy Lou would be from me (I would want to know this and not feeling like people were lurking).
