Happy ListWhat's made me happy in the last couple days...
How could this kid not make me happy?! He says things like "Take care now" when people leave and climbs up on the big table chair to help himself to the strawberries.
He always makes me laugh. Even when I don't want to. Sometimes this irritates me, but mostly it makes me happy :)
If you haven't seen this, you are missing out! It's wildly inappropriate but so, so funny.
After an entire bottle of wine it's even funnier (right Nikki?)
Check Daniel Tosh out!
Homemade Chocolate Twinkies.
Wow. Just wow.
P.S. I did not make these. I wish.
Salt, butter. Mmmmm.
As if Derek Morgan isn't reason enough, the twisted and completely appalling nature of this show is a good distraction. And that is always a good thing.
Good visits with friends and family.
Stupid YouTube videos
Some are funny no matter how many times you see them.
I also want to include Ellie's Happy List. We were lucky enough to get just over nine months with our Peanut. We got to see her start turning into an amazing little person. I am lucky enough to know what Ellie's list was. I'm sure it would different now as an almost 14 month old (kills me to think of her as a toddler...) than it was a nine month old. But her Happy List makes me happy!

Puffs (also known as Baby Crack)
Getting a hold of Max's Georgie
Baby Beluga by Raffi
I sang this song to both kids all the time to get them to calm down. It seriously worked EVERY time. Ellie would just flop her head down on my chest and pretend to close her eyes. I can't even begin to count how many times I sang this to her when she was at the hospital, hooked up to all the machines. And we had everyone sing this at her funeral. It was her favorite lullaby. This is not the Raffi version, this is a little more adult friendly.
We finally had to stop putting her in it. She was getting a little out of hand.
I could add a lot more to Ellie's List. But I think I will save some for next time.
Great idea Natasha! Doing this list made me happy!
