My Favorite Baby Quote…

Of all of these my favorite is, “ Perfection only exists in babies and pastries.” The reason is because I also love pastries and I like the lite-heartedness that the rhyming gives it. Although I also enjoy the humor in, “You’re my favorite reason to lose sleep.”

I struggle with feeling vulnerable and naturally reject things that are too sappy so some of the others aren’t necessarily for me. Although I have to admit holding and spending time with the lil cherubs in my life has certainly helped me get back in touch with the emotional openness I had as a kid. They truly are treasures.

Which quote did you like best? (and why?)

With Love,
