I Love you Because You're You!

I was reading this story to Colin the other night and I couldn't believe how fitting it truly is to him and his specialness!

I Love You Because You're You
by Liza Baker & Illustrated by David McPhail
I love you when you're happy and grinning ear to ear.I love you when you're sleeping and want to snuggle near. I love you when you're silly and dancing 'round and 'round.
I love you when you're frightened and hear a scary sound. I love you when you're bashful and hide behind my knee.
I love you when you're brave and from my arms you flee.
I love you when you're curious and searching here and there.
I love you when you're proud, your head held in the air.

I love you when you're sick and need to rest in bed.
I love you when you're frisky and standing on your head.
I love you when you're sad and need a kiss and hug.

I love you when you're playful and rolling on the rug.
I love you when you're angry and cross your arms and pout.
I love you when you're wild and yell and scream and shout.

I love you any way you feel, no matter what you do.

I love you any way you are.

I love you because you're you!!
