up until i saw nash smile for the first time, i can't think of one instant in my life where i thought to myself "wow. this makes it all worth it." but now i feel like i'm having these experiences on a daily basis:

nash amazes me with the things he knows. i find myself saying aloud: "did he really just do that? did he really just say that?" and then testing him to see if he knew what he did. last night i told nash (as i often do) "i love you." he quickly said something back that sounded quite a bit like he told me the same thing. after a few minutes of testing it was confirmed. he told me he loves me: "i you." my heart skipped a beat.

haven has started smiling at me-and not just because i'm smiling at her. if this doesn't put your heart at ease, i don't know what does. she does this one smile where she smirks one side and scrunches her nose and her left eyebrow arches a little higher than the other one. ooohhhh, it kills me.

and then, to see the two of them together: nothing in the world is sweeter. the way nash worries about her, takes care of her, and gives her kisses. he's so proud of his baby-we went to a bbq and when we got there he pointed and cooed at her and looked around the room to make sure everyone realized that the baby was there. and the way haven watches him as he crawls around her. i think she even gave him a little smile today...

You seem to have it together Liz for having 2 babies. Sam seemed like he still had some baby in him 'til he turned three. I can't believe Nash gets the whole baby sister thing already!

Hey, thanks for the suggestion! I think I found something I can do at home though, so I'm going to give it a try. I'll let you know if it doesn't work out though!
