Ah what a lovely thread. My dds are much older, 7 and 5. I love them so much it hurts (even when they are naughty and they drive me up the wall!)
I always tell them "I love you when you are happy, I love you when you are sad, I love you when you are good and I love you when you are bad".
Anyone remember the bit in the Simpsons where Marge tells Homer she is pregnant with Lisa and says 'There's going to be twice as much love in this house.' Always brings a tear to my eye.
(FFS! The Simpsons! I should not be crying at the Simpsons!!!)
I love the way her face wrinkles just before she yells...I love the sound she makes when laughs so hard she cant stop. I love the raspberry noises she makes when she goes to sleep.
I love the fact that she loves to sneeze (just did it).
I love the way he collapses ont he floor and buries his face in his hands when he has a tantrum.
I loe the way he saqy 'hiya man' to every man int he supermarket he passes
I love the way he say 'hiya Bob' to any man in a hard hat.
I love the way he runs down the corridor giggling with no clothes on after a bath (that little fat bum is so cute!)
I loe the way he squeezes me when he cuddles.
I love the way he says 'Mummy do x too' whenever he has to do something.
I love the way he draws a squiggle on a page, burst out laughing and says 'dinosaur'.
I love the way he raises his eyebrows out me Roger Moore style (the things we teach our children to do .
You've all convinced me that there is anough love to go round. What, however, if the next one is horrid. Everyone told me hhow hard babies are, how terrible the terrible twos are etc etc. It has all been 100% wonderful becase DS1 is so perfect. If we go on Chaos theory then for all chaos there had to be some order. What if for all perfection there has to be some horridness.
I remember a friend telling me that for each month, age you think that it can't get any better - your child has reached the perfect age. However it does. I keep thinking that being a mother can't be any more wonderful, but it justs keeps on getting more wonderful, she was right!
Kathy - I love her even more, as she has been asleep for 3 HOURS!! The kitchen has been tidied, the duvet washed, baby clothes tumnble dried, I have cooked LO's lunch which she slept through AND I have been able to talk on MN!!!
