Happiness is...

...washing and folding baby clothes.
Little pink and red onesies and rompers and dresses for a baby girl.
Washing and folding baby girl clothes is decidedly 100% more enjoyable than laundering men's dress shirts or women's under garments.
Today I piddled around my little house, making sure to completely ignore the messes in my kitchen, stopping for little naps or a few Cadbury mini eggs along my way.
It's quiet, no music or TV on today, just me and the baby and our thoughts. She gets the hiccups, which makes me smile, rocking in the new rocker.
I'm making list after list in my head of little things and big things that need to get done before she arrives. Babies need a lot of stuff, I decide.
BD will be home tomorrow and can help with the big things.
I snack on graham crackers dipped in cold milk in the late afternoon and wondered if someday she'll love the same.
Simple joys. I'm feeling like the luckiest momma-to-be in the world today.
