the best day with you, mila

from the moment you woke up to the second you fell asleep, we had the best day with you today, mila. i’m writing this so i always remember just how precious and special today was.

nothing exciting happened. we didn’t even leave the house. but you were just so happy and precious and sweet all day – i never want to forget.

your dad had the whole weekend off work and you spent most of it on his lap or hanging off his hip. you two are so cute.

you woke up and i brought you from your crib into bed with us where we snuggled and played all morning.

you ate so much all day. how did you eat that much? waffles, pineapple, tofu, tomatoes, barbecue chicken, ribs, brussels, sweet potatoes, cake…. it was endless. how?

sweet girl. we snuggled on the couch. we played “chase mila”. we watched dad practice his bbq technique and taste tested a dozen chicken thighs.

we gave mochi lots of pets and skyped with grammy and jiichan.

when it was time for bed you were out in five minutes.

best of all, you were just so so happy. all day. you weren’t upset once. all smiles and kisses and snuggles.

it was the best day. i wish every day was just like today.

i can’t wait to have a good day with you tomorrow.
