10 things I never want to forget:

About Hannah, age 3

1) I love how you say the words chicken and kitchen. And how daddy and I make you same them together in a sentence. I want some chicken in the kitchen. And you say, "I want some chucken in the kitchun." We all think it's the funniest thing in the world.

2) I love how when you get in your carseat you get your straps on all by yourself. Sometimes we get into the driver seat and forget that we haven't buckled you in, and you say every time, "I NEED BUCKLE!" It's become such a ritual that we some times pretend that we are going to forget to do it, just so we can hear you say it again.

3) You are so great in the car. You just chill and look out the window. On the way to church you always notice a big metal wooly mammoth perched up on a hill, and you always say, "Hi Mr. Elephant."

4) When I do your hair, you are so very still and pacient for me. Some days you want your hair in two braids, or one like your Auntie Amy sometimes wears. Yesterday you said you wanted your hair long like mine. Today your hair is a crazy mess because you didn't want to take a shower and I didn't have any fight in me this morning. So you did it yourself and promised to take a bath tonight. You have a headband on that is situated right on you hair line. The other day you wanted to wear your headband on your forehead like Tiger Lily on Peter Pan. But you call her Tiger Girl.

5)You still love chapstick. Right now you are sitting on my lap, slathering it on, then smacking your lips.

6)Whenever daddy comes home, you "hide". Which means you bury your face into the couch and giggle until he "finds" you.

7) You sing and jump and dance. You often say, "Mommy! WATCH ME!" And then you hop over something and look at my face anticipating my, "Wow, that was amazing."

8) You say things just like me. You say words like amazing and coo at your brother just how I do saying, "Aw, what a cute little guy." Or, "Poor little fellow."

9) You love to wear scarves at church, and you have a special friend who knows this, and gave you some adorable polka dot ones that you love to take on and off, especially at home in front of the mirror.

10) I love so much about you dear Hannah. 10 things are not enough to describe you at all, how you come into our bed every morning and I can hear your little foot steps, you giggle at your brother and harass me to get you some juice, and throw fits about my completely unreasonable request that you go pee first, but then as soon as you do you run back in and say "I DID it!" and act as if you didn't throw any fit at all and everything is cool. In fact the other day you used the word cool in a sentence. I had watched a grown up movie after you went to bed, and the next morning you asked me if I watched my movie and I said yes, and then you asked me this: "Was it coowell?" I gave you a funny look asked you what? Was it what? And you said so plainly again, "Was it cooooowell?" And I said, yes, I guess it was cool. You talk so much and so very well, and sometimes I want you to stop growing and learning so fast and be just like you are this very day forever. Even though you are so frustrating too I want to pull chunks of my hair out. I love you forever and ever.

This is so sweet! I often find myself thinking about the cute little things Johnny does that I never want to forget. I need to be better about writing them all down.
