gratitude journal: In honor of 2 years with the Quail..

1.being such a little concerned sweetheart about everyone in your world- if someone is sad or upset you are the first to scootch over and offer up a bear hug and plenty of sympathetic oooohhhhhs…

2. Being the feistiest lil sprite around town- no doubt you will not be bullied- you’ll swat back

3. teaching so many people about loving people as who they are

4. helping me see what others, and myself in the past see as obligation as a sweet gift- I used to think of your breathing treatments as one more thing to check off each day- now I can’t wait to snuggle you and your sis while you both cuddle up each night

5. learning to trust you and what you are telling us- you are the antonym for passive

6. your trust in us- as you seek us out when you are upset

7. you are such a smartie-smart girl- you continually amaze me as you progress from itty-bitty sweetheart baby to full-on, take the world no holds barred toddler

8. the pride I feel in the tiniest things you do

9. your ability to be soooooooo naughty- you repeatedly swipe your therapists things and hide them and then proceed to empty our cabinets into the tub and potty

10. the way you LOVE to dance with me & Daddy- you snuggle in for a slow song, bounce along to a peppy one and reach up to the sky when a song you know comes on or we suggest dancing

11. the way you holler to let us know you are up in the morning and keep at it until we are too

12. the way you race to the door at school when you hear your peeps approaching

13. the way your whole face lights up when we make you laugh- via tickles, silly games, or your jokes and teasing of us

14. your ability to communicate with your whole body- you launch on to your sister and dad as Captain Pounceypants, swipe a poor food offering off of your plate with more gusto than Marlon Brando

15. the people you have married to our lives

16. your insistence on doing things your way (which is so similar to your sisters)

17. your similarities to Zuzu- its uncanny how alike in basic make-up you are

18. how incredibly rascally you are in ways that never crossed your sisters mind

19. your determination to do everything you see everyone else doing- you’ve now jumped into the wrastlin piles at school

20. you love to be sung to- it calms you, centers you and cheers you

21. your unicorn status in a sea of horses

22. your kittenin into us

23. that you are mine- thank you dear baby

  1. Wow, 2 years has flown. What a sweet little bird she is. I love your list, especially 21. Glad to hear she’s a sassy little thing. I wish we could have a playdate. Who knows? Maybe we’ll travel your way someday.
