I want to remember this

So many things happen and are said that make me think, "I really want to remember that." I have a fear of forgetting, which has led to my compulsion of having a planner since I was 12 years old and writing what I do in it each and every day.  It's strange, but it works.

I want to remember:

+ The four year old I babysit for telling me she wants the baby to know her when he is born, so she's going to start talking to him now.  She then proceeds to tap on my stomach and say, "_____ how are you doing today?"

+ Paytons HUGE smile every time I see her (daily!).  I don't have to say a word and she is all smiles, but when I do say "hello pretty girl!" she starts squealing and yelling with excitement.  It literally makes me feel like my heart is going to burst. 

+ That I do actually love redish orangish toenail polish and that I need to be less polish judgmental. 

+ That between 22 and 23 weeks baby went from only kicking at night to kicking all.the.time.  It is great and I love it.  

+ The actual need for icecream on a hot, hot mid-March day.  Pure awesomeness.  Hello spring summer!

+ The six year old I babysit for believing that baby will come out pretty much ready and able to play the wii.

+ The point in Frank and I's life where $100 worth of groceries lasted us two months.  I know this will be changing far too soon.

+ Being able to get up and down off the floor, tying my shoes, clipping my toenails, shaving my legs, etc. Glorious things that may quickly be taken away from me.

+ My dad telling me last week that he worries about me now more than ever, and he can't stand it, so I just need to be careful and be as lazy as possible. He's hilarious and not a worrier.  

I know there is more but I just can't remember them right now!
I'll probably be adding to the list, or just start making a weekly post out of this.
