Birthday Presents

We requested that friends and family not get Margot too many presents for her birthday, but I guess it’s only fair that her Titi Tasha and Uncle Danny get to spoil her a little bit with things that are big and plastic and require batteries.

What an incredible day our little girl has had celebrating her birth.  What an incredibly lucky family we are to have her.

A bushel and a peck

I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I’m talkin’ in my sleep

About you, about you
‘Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do
A doodle oodle ooh doo
A doodle oodle oodle ooh doo

I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck though you make my heart a wreck
Make my heart a wreck and you make my life a mess
Make my life a mess, yes a mess of happiness

About you, about you
‘Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do
A doodle oodle ooh doo
A doodle oodle oodle ooh doo

I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck and it beats me all to heck
It beats me all to heck, how I’ll ever tend the farm
Ever tend the farm when I wanna keep my arm

About you, about you
‘Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do
A doodle oodle ooh doo
A doodle oodle oodle ooh doo

A doodle oodle oodle ooh doo
A doodle oodle ooh doo doo

Happy Birthday Margot

I guess it’s customary for a lot of “mommy bloggers” (am I one of those?) to write letters to their children on occasions such as this, but I’m not really sure what I want to say or if I want to say it in an open letter to my baby.DSC_0242

My baby…

There are so many things…

But, they all seem best summed up in the phrase that I whisper into Margot’s sweet neck at night when we are all curled up together in bed:

“You are everything.” DSC_0248
