My Girl

"Talkin' 'bout my giiirl..."

What can I say? I am so in love with my girl. She's pretty, sweet, funny, playful, patient, enduring, lovable, happy, content, and just down right cute! My little Caiden Keats. How blessed I am to have you. I have to admit, I was a little nervous about having a girl. I didn't know how I would do. But you bless me every day. I love you so much that I can't even really put it in to words. So often I tell my friends that I love having a girl and when they ask me why, I just can't explain it. I think you're great. You fill my heart with overwhelming joy. And even if you're supposed to bond more with your Dad than with me, I don't care. I think we get along just great. And I have a feeling that you're going to grow up to love us both just fine.

Some of the things that make you, you include:

1. An uncanny abilitly to swerve around your brother's intimidating, bulldozing path.
2. You love to eat shoes.
3. You crawl around eating up scraps of food or whatever else is left lying on the floor, but submissivly spit it out when I come over to get it out of your mouth.
4. You have a wonderful open mouth full face smile that is incredibly infectious.
5. You love to be happy and almost always are.
6. You have an amazing amount of patience with Elliott as he knocks you about, rolls around with you, picks you up and tries to carry you, takes things away from you all the time all day long, gets all up in your face, constantly invades your personal space, and is generally loud and obnoxious. It takes quite a lot to get you to cry from these things. In fact, I am often shocked to see you actually smiling as Elliott grabs you and rolls you over on top of him and squeezes you tight.
7. You are almost always the first one to greet Daddy when he comes home from work.
8. You love to go outside.
9. You love your brother. You think he's the absolute best thing since sliced bread warm milk.
10. You give kisses even when we don't ask for them.
