The Joy of Discovery

I love watching Ella discover the world around her.  Today, she ran around our yard jumping in the puddles and giggling at the splashes.  She then moved on to tasting and biting rocks which were too hard so she threw them down.  She then honed in on a wildflower, tasted a petal and promptly spit it out with a loud plehhh. I laughed out loud. Then she began picking the petals like we used to do - he loves me, he loves me not.  Very sweet.  These are the joyous moments of my days.  Her giggle, her smile that lights me up every time, her impish laugh, her wet kisses, her big hugs where she squeezes my neck or lays her head on my chest. I can't get enough.
