…so of course I cannot sleep…half-listening to the monitor for signs of wakefulness…
She’s only 19 months old. Last night she slept there from 9:30 to 3 a.m. with only one bout of wakefulness and to soothe her, I ran in to nurse her back to sleep, feeling useful. At 3 a.m. J said “bring her in here” when we heard her say “Mommy” on the monitor, but directly after I picked her up into my arms, I realized she was already back to sleep and regretted taking J’s advice (despite the fact that sleeping without her is a major adjustment for me.)
It’s hard, when she’s ready to grow up and I’m lagging behind, but I never, ever want to hold her back.
So here I lie, in my own bed, awake.
(no new pictures, because she sent my SD card to the bottom of the pc case by sticking it into the CF card slot. Waiting for a new SDHC card, but I do miss my camera.)
