10. Her love of her "barn boots" (i.e. fuzzy brown winter boots that are 5 sizes too big that are permanently muddy). My favorite is when she wears them with just her diaper.
9. The fact that she would rather have a new kitten than a new baby. And she means it. And no, I'm not pregnant, Mom.
8. That my lexicon has been altered to use lub and bootiful in place of how the rest of the English speaking world says them. Sorry... can't help it.
7. That when in Sunday School the craft was to make a best friend bracelet, she gave it to me.
6. That she is a listener. A really, really good listener.
5. Don't confuse number 5 with me meaning she listens to what I ask her to do. That would not be on the 10 Things I Lub about her list...
4. Where her brother has loved us (and everyone he knows for that matter) since he was old enough begin to grasp it, you have to earn Goose's love. You know her love for you is genuine.
3. She is completely okay and 100% insistent that she is my baby. See number 9.
2. She loves to take care of other people. If you need a Band-Aid or someone to hold a icepack on your boo-boo, homegirl is on it.
1. She makes me smile and laugh like no one else. She frustrates me like no one else. She envokes some of the strongest emotions in me. She teaches me everyday something new about myself, about her, about the world. She is, after all, my baby.
