there were words to go with this post, but damn if i don't just want to soak in the love that shines through her in everything she does. we have this nightly ritual. she used to ask: "how 'bout you sad?" and we'd "pretend" sad and then kiss each others woes away. now? she asks me to be mad, grumpy, and mean- and with each emotion i express- she kisses me. she kisses away my mad, my grumpy, my mean... my sad. she is the light of our lives.
not to mention she is in fact the most adorable child on the planet and these pictures prove that.
