Let me count thy ways...

Dear Colton,
There are so many things I love about you, you are the light of my life and I am so thankful for you!

I love the way you look at me and smile every time.
I love the way you are so intent on things (the remote or your toys).
I love the way you laugh if I "cough" at you.
I love your giggle.
I love your tiny toes and chubby feet.
I love the way you can sit up really well-until you get excited and you forget to keep your balance.
I love the way you jump so hard in your jumperoo.
I love your slobbery kisses.
I love your toothless smile.
I love how you bite the sippy cup lid instead of sucking out the juice. (you still drank a 1/2 cup of juice this way today)
I love how you will hold your self up at tummy time, than suddenly you get lazy and just lay face first on the floor until I pick up.
I secretely love spending time with you at 4:30 in the morning- even if I have to sacrifice some sleep. 
I love how you always know where your "food" is and will eat any chance you get.  (my greedy little man lol)
I love the way you "hug" me even though I am pretty sure you just want to pull my hair.
I love holding while you are peacefully sleeping.
I love watching you sleep.
I love wondering "what is he thinking?"
I love the way you bite/attack Sophie.
I love it when I read you books and you insist on holding the book- even though than it makes it very difficult to read the book.
I love the way you instantly stop crying if I play "Strawberry Wine" and sing along for you.
I love it when I feed you and it's like you just can't wait for me to get the next bite to you.
I love every moment I get to spend with you.
I love when I give you a bath, you splash most of the water out of the tub (either on me or the carpet).
I love when I give you a bath how excited you get- your legs kicking like crazy.
I love how calm you are in the swimming pool- I can tell you love the water.
I love how chunky you look in your swim suit :-)
I love you VERY chunky thighs.
I love how you are always happy.
I love how you love my kisses! 
I love your chubby cheeks!
I love your bright eyes.
I love how you chew on your blankey.
I love how you like to chew on my fingers.
I love how anything I have you want it-- cell phone, or the key board like right now :-)
I love everything about you!

I Love You,

PS There are so many more but you just woke up and require my attention right now :-)
