- The way she entertwines her fingers through my hair for relaxation. She loves to hold my hair when it's time to sleep or drink her milk.
- How she always says "ho-ho-ho" like Santa when she puts something on her head. She'll call it a "hat", but often it's a bucket, pair of pants, or some other odd object lying around.
- When she covers her face with a towel or large hat so that she's unable to see as she walks around running into things. This makes her giggle like crazy.
- The concern she has when a shoe falls off of her. She'll wake up from fast asleep if her shoe gets knocked off and start saying "shoe" in a really concerned voice.
- Her absolute conviction about how things should be done. This is not a child who will ever get picked on or pushed around by anyone. Peer pressure should not be a problem!
- When you tell her it's time to go, and she marches toward the front door saying "hut-two, hut-two".
- The way she loves animals. She'll never give us kisses but she's always got plenty for the cats and dogs.
- When she gets a piece of lettuce from the fridge and immediately starts looking for her "dada" so she can feed her turtles. I adore the way she says turtles. She also loves to feed the fish!
- Her orneriness. She knows when she's being feisty and she'll laugh hysterically about it.
- If she can't see her dad or myself, she'll say "mama" or "dada" in a very concerned tone and then throw her hands up and say "uh-oh". She recently added "ohhhh noooo" to this.
- The child's fascination with Bubble Guppies. Thank you Nickelodeon. We owe you our lives.
- When she hands you her sippy cup after she's done with it, she always says either "here go" or "thank you". Super cute in her adorable little baby voice.
- The fact that she calls her Grandma (my mom) "doo-doo". No one ever even says doo-doo to her, much less encouraged her to nickname her Grandma that. But I love it!

Things I Adore about Paisley
I was thinking this morning while snuggling with my sweet pea in bed about all of the little things that I never want to forget about her. You know, the things that are what make her unique.
