Yummiest Love by Lisa McCourt and Laura J. Bryant is a book that I read to Joe almost every day. It chokes me up every time I read it to him. I keep borrowing it from the library…I might have to add it permanently to our collection.
I love your wild belly laugh
so delicious to my ears,
I’d do my silly face a hundred times
just to hear it again and again.
I love your scrumptious smell
when you’re soaped and rinsed
and squeaky clean,
and even when you’re not.
I love the snuddle we invented –
a cross between a snuggle and a cuddle,
but better and warmer than either of them.
Your snuddles are the best thing in my world.
I love our gentle, quiet times.
And the warmth of your small body
and the beautiful beating of your perfect little heart.
I treasure every memory we make.
Memories of special days
and all the days in between,
each day wrapped in the yummiest love.
I love all our tickles
and tumbles and smiles.
I love everything you’ve been
and everything you’ll become.
It seems impossible that I could love you more each day
but that is what happens.
You keep changing and growing and that will never stop.
All I can do is hang on for the ride.
