Love Like Crazy

They called them crazy when they started out
Said seventeen's too young to know what loves about

I have a new found love of mornings. Especially now that summer is here, and I don't freeze when I walk out the door. But honestly, my new found love of mornings comes from my little girl. Who could not love mornings when you wake up to a gorgeous smiling angel? Even on the mornings [most since we gotta take DH to work] where I have to go in and wake her up. She greets me with the sleepiest smile, and then stretches that cute little body and gives me more big ol' smiles. I love it.

Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I Love You
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common since
Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
And love like crazy

Every morning when we get home from dropping DH off at work, I plop little miss in her high chair at the table. I then go around and open the doors & windows and open the blinds near the kitchen table. And we say "Good morning Mr.Sunshine!" And when the kitties come out to see us, we say good morning to them, too. I get her breakfast made and get my coffee going. If she's patient enough, I get my breakfast made and coffee poured. And then we eat. We sit at the kitchen table and eat together. I wake my computer up while I feed her and she watches a little big of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse while I eat if she's being impatient.

I love it.

Always treat your woman like a lady
Never get to old to call her baby
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy

Every morning she's stripped down to her diaper - She's a bit of a messy eater, and I am okay with that. She spends the remainder of the morning in her diaper - Not getting dressed until after her nap, if she gets dressed at all. 

Yesterday I let her play in her birthday suit for about 20 minutes. I laid a towel down and let her have at it. Oh my - She had a blast. And when I put her on her tummy? Massive smiles. Lots of them. She is not a fan of tummy time (thanks reflux monster) but she was digging it this day. Maybe it was because she was naked? I'll tell you what - This kid doesn't like clothes. She's fine when I take clothes off her - But when I go to put them on? Oh boy is she mad. 

Let's be honest here, though - I don't like clothes, either. And if I were a baby, I am sure I'd dig chilling in my diaper all day. 

I got some adorable photos of her playing naked - I wish I could share them, but that just isn't the smartest of ideas this day & age. 

I really want to get her a kiddie pool. We live upstairs. We have a private garage. We're attached to people. However, the lady to the right of us in the 2 story 3 bedroom place is super nice - She's been here since we moved in. We talk occasionally. They have a small patch of grass between their driveway/garage and ours. I am sure if I were to ask - She'd let us put the pool there and would even let us use her hose to fill it up, since we don't have a faucet thing. But getting the 'guts' - Getting past the shyness - to ask is a task in itself. Who knows if I'll get around to it before the summer is up.
