After that we went to the library to find some new DVDs for toddler viewing, then picked up My Man for an excursion to Chick-fil-A and Target. At Chick-fil-A we met a family in the play area with a little girl just four days younger than the Boogie. The play area was clean and there were hardly any kids there so it was a pleasant experience for all. The little girls played very nicely together.
This afternoon my BFF in Montana called me! We talked for over an hour. I haven't seen her since I got married. :( Today I did my best to convince her that she and her husband, Mr. Cowboy, need to come to the East Coast to visit. We have lots of mutual friends out this way and apparently Mr. Cowboy has some family not too far from here, too. Chica, if you are reading this, you NEED TO COME TO NEW JERSEY. We would have so much fun. If you come I promise we will take you to NYC and Philly and the shore.
Here's the Boogie talking to her Lela, I believe. Apparently she thinks Lela is outside somewhere. (I was on the phone with my BFF which is why my comments make no sense.)
The Boogie makes me so happy. I love her cute little face and her adorable grin and her cheerfulness. I love all the things she is learning to say. I love hearing her sing to herself all day long. I love how her clean face shines and how good she smells fresh out of a bath. I love when she sees me and says, "Mama!" as she runs across the room into my arms. I love feeling her little arms hug my neck tight. I love how she lays in her crib and says "I luh you" around the binky in her mouth and makes a kissy noise at me. At night when I am easing into sleep I think about the things she did that day and it literally makes me smile and laugh in the darkness. I love her so much it makes my heart ache with happiness sometimes. She is such an amazing little person and I thank God daily for allowing us to have her in our lives.
