I Could Explode

Last night I witnessed the sweetest moment with Ella thus far.

Our night time routine includes Heath tucking Ella in and telling her a night night story. Tonight he did that as usual and when he was walking out the door, Ella yelled "Dada!" Heath turned back towards her and she said so sweetly, "I love you." Can you even handle that? It was the first time she's ever said it. My body could explode with the love I have for her. We melted.

On a totally different subject, I forgot AGAIN to tell y'all what Heath got me for Christmas when he made me do the wild goose chase. Several of you have asked and now I feel like it's been dragged out and built up and you are expecting something so incredibly fabulous like a new car or a romantic trip to Hawaii. Really, it was a nice gift card to Kohls, which he knows I love and I will love using it!

And on a totally different subject again...
I don't make resolutions. Maybe in my mind I'll kind of think of things I'd like to do this year, but I never voice them or record them. But I do have one tiny blogging resolution. In the past few months I have started several blog posts that I never published. So I would like to go back and publish them and also try not to do that this year. Mainly because I spend time on them and then never complete it. I'll try to be more diligent. You know because this is my "scrapbook" for Ella since I know I will never actually sit done and do a real one.

This is how Ella rang in the new year!
