Five Little Things

Yesterday morning, I went into our bedroom to kiss Ellie before I left for work and she was laying there, staring at the ceiling.  She gave me the biggest smile when she saw me, and when I picked her up, she would not stop giggling.  Such a simple thing completely made my day (it also totally made it even harder than usual to leave her).  Sometimes they're so easy to forget or not even realize at all, but I always say it's the little things that make life that much better.  Here are five totally random little things that I'm loving right now:

1.  A short commute.  After commutes in the hour+ range the past few weeks, a 30-35 minute commute feels like a breeze.  Plus, I get home to my tiny baber's face that much sooner.

2.  Sweater weather.  Or should I say sweatshirt weather, because let's be real, I'm all about the comfort.  Throwing on a sweatshirt and leggings when I get home from work feels amazing in the cooler weather.  Bonus points  if you add on some of your husband's ridiculously warm socks over your leggings. ;) 

3.  A hot cup of coffee.  Another cool weather favorite!  I'm not a fan of iced coffee, so I drink it hot even when it's 95 degrees out.  Sipping on a hot cup on a cool morning makes it taste even better, if you ask me!  If only apple cider had caffeine.  Then I would really be in heaven.

4.  Baby food pouches.  This one sounds kind of silly, but I kind of want to be friends with the person who thought of these.  Who knew squeezing a pouch onto a spoon would be so easy and make for a significantly less messy mealtime?  I bought these because a.) I liked the different flavors they came in, and b.) I liked the packaging (huge sucker for marketing over here).  Turns out Ellie loves them and so does mama. Win-win.

5.  Our babysitters.  For a million reasons, including the fact that they are obviously taking awesome care of Ellie (which is a not so little thing), but they also do things like fold laundry and unload the dishwasher.  Little things that would otherwise need to get done when we get home from work (or before work when I decide it's more important to spend that extra fifteen minutes crawling back in bed to cuddle with Ellie).  Now, I just hope they don't read this and think they have to do these things all the time because I'm expecting it - I'm not. It's just an added bonus. ;)

Little moments like this are some of my favorites.
