Love Personified

"Mom, I care about you."
Those were the words I heard from my sleepy-eyed A-Nator as she slowly walked down the stairs this morning.

This girl personifies love.
I think she was born with the 'I love you' sign on her hand.

When I grow up I want to be like her...
She genuinely cares about the world around her.
She has a natural bend toward nurturing others.
We sometimes call her 'little mama'.
She's always thinking ahead about the needs of others...
I have to remind her that it's not her job.
Have fun being a kid.
When her sister is sick, she will put on her nurse costume from last year and immediately get into character.
She even gave Gracie a bell.  Oi.

 She cares about the earth and gets on her soapbox when she sees litter on the ground.
At least you were warned. ;)
She has many ideas... I'm sure she'll share them with you when she's president.

She truly loves family and spending time with us.
Here are a few shots from a quick Mommy/Daughter date while Gracie was in her Jazz class.

One of those moments you wish you could freeze in time.
