How Do I Love You?

Ethan's special book is "How Do I Love You" by P.K. Hallinan.  It's the sweetest book and Eric and I know it by heart since we used to read it to him every night when he was little. 

"How do I love you?
Let me count the ways.
I love you on your very best... and very worst of days.
I love to see you laughing and dancing in the rain.
And even when you lose your shoes, I love you just the same.
I love to hear you singing. I love to see you smile.
I love the way you take each day in your own unhurried style.
I'm happy when you're happy, And I'm sorry when you're sad.
And even though it may not show, I love you when you're bad.
How do I love you? Well, no, let me see...
I love the way you act so brave when you fall and hurt your knee.
I love to watch you sleeping, tucked away in pleasant dreams.
I love to hear you whisper all your giant plans and schemes.
I love the way you wear your pants with the front part in the back,
And the way you walk around sometimes with your head inside a sack.
I love to see you deep in thought. I love to watch you play.
And though I'm sure you'll never know, I love you more each day.
How do I love you? I'ts impossible to say.
For if I had a million days and time enough for all the praise,
I couldn't tell you all the ways...
I love you."

We love you Ethan!
