You know those days when...

You know those days when everything feels perfect? When you just feel lucky to be living your life? I had one of those days today, or more specifically, I had one of those nights tonight. I feel lucky to have my husband--we were laughing so hard that we were crying tonight (this is a common occurrence because his laugh makes me laugh and vice versa and then it just spins out of control until we can't breathe), which woke up the baby and she was smiling as big and wide as she possibly could--like her little cheeks could barely contain her smile and I just felt lucky. Then I laid her in her crib and she just played herself to sleep. I'm also really thinking that Microbiology is hard but probably my favorite class so far. I think about microbiology all the time--every time I cook, anytime I disinfect something, when we get new info about my mom's cancer, when I daydream about pathogens, I also just like repeating the words glycocalyx, substrate level phosphorylation, thiogylcallate--these are just fun words for the mouth to say, it's like Dr. Suess, I really do just say them over and over in my head--I'm weird--I also like the words bimbo and perpendicular.

Anyway, here are some of the things that made today a good day:
We practice sitting up in the morning on the bed. It's the only safe place to practice in a house with only hardwoods and tile!

She's so full of joy, I strive to be like her.

Allie is also full of joy, but it's sort of retarded joy (I know that is really not PC, but if you knew Allie you'd understand). Porter is such a trooper, although at least he usually gets clean ears out of the deal.

Cuddle bugs.

That was such a fun blog entry to read. I love those days...when you just feel completely filled up...although, I can imagine it's a million times better being a Momma. You have such a beautiful family. Picture perfect!
