Friday Fave 5

Here are my five favorite things about my Sweet Caroline

  1. I love to hear her talk to her "babies" after we put her to bed. Some of you can attest to the fact that she has LOTS of babies in her bed and mothers every one of them.

  2. I love to see her with her Daddy. She lights up the moment he enters the room. She loves to go to Cabelas with him or wrestle around. They are a pair. I only hope she can find someone as amazing as him to make a life with some day.

  3. I love her memory. She can remember a name or place after just seeing it one time. We'll drive by something and she'll have to remind me all about who we saw there or what we did or what the weather was like. She always says "remember when we went there yesterday?" Her yesterdays refer to anything in the past...

  4. I love to hear her sing. It makes me tear up to hear her singing "Oh How I Love Jesus" or "God is So Good." There is nothing like that little voice singing to God. I also like to hear her sing the Gwen Stefani/Akon song "Sweet Escape"...

  5. I love to argue with her. Anyone who is around the two of us knows that we butt heads 25 hours a day. I have said many times that because she was a surprise that I prayed for a Chris but definitely got an Ashley. She's type A and opinionated. She loves to cook and nap. She looks like the carbon copy of her Daddy, but inside she is me. We could spend all day getting on to each other, but when she cries or is scared or hurt- she comes to "Mom" (as I am called now).

Here's one of my favorite pictures of her with my dad when she was itty bitty. Look how dark her hair is!!

OK - now it's my turn! My 5 favorite things:
1. When she says,"Ally!"
2. When she talks about Annie who she hasn't seen since June.
3. I have to agree on the singing - her little voice is so sweet!
4. How she says "Cheese!" without smiling at all (and sometimes not even looking up from what she's doing) when people pull out a camera. I believe it has been said before that she is the most photographed child ever!
5. Listening to her tell me all kinds of things on the phone - most of which I can't understand (due to my horrible hearing, not her speaking skills)
I miss her!

How cute! Walker went with Jason to Cabela's, and he still talks about the "yellow place" (the color of the sign). Daddy's girls are so cute! I would love to meet her and get our little princesses together!
