Peace.





















Moments like this one make me want her to be small forever.  There is something so pure and precious about a peaceful sleeping babe.

She wants me to be holding her while she naps in the morning.  As much as I'd like to get something done during that time, I instead have decided to soak up the time I get to hold her while she sleeps.  My arms get tired but by next month she will be turning ONE and pouf there she travels into Toddlerhood and she won't want me to hold her forever.  Where did the last 11 months go?  Everyone says that but it really is true.

Today was particularly challenging.  Baby girl is recovering from her first ear infection (milestone?).  The antibiotic has her feeling sick to her stomach and particularly fussy.  So naptime today was extra cherished.  It gave us both time to recharge.

Tonight after yoga I'm reminded I am at peace, all is well.

May I (and you) sleep this peacefully too.

I can't believe she will be one next month. I hate when cliches like "they grow up so quick" turn out to be true!

so true... soak it up. em rarely wants to cuddle anymore (only at night). when ian falls asleep in my arms i hold him as long as emma will let me:). plus, they are always so precious and angelic when they are asleep.
