the two best things that have come out of f's mouth in the last 24 hours:
"i love you ALL MUCH!"
"mama, i love daddy THE WHOLE WORLD."
the whole world. so dang sweet, i want to bottle it up and save it for a decade from now, when she's all "MOM! YOU! RUINED! EVERYTHING! EV! REE! THING!!!" and then runs into her bedroom and slams the door. then i can go take the bottle down from the shelf and dab a little behind each ear and maybe feel ok again. wish me luck.
