“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014.”
Olivia: Remember that bedtime routine I talked about? Well, it also includes you sneaking into our bed at 4am pretty much every single morning. Don’t worry, we’re not mad. We secretly love it. Most nights anyway…..mainly when you’re not kicking us in the gut….or slowly pushing us off the bed… Anyway, your dad came home from work and I just got done telling him that you didn’t take a nap that day. He laughed and said, “oh, she didn’t nap today? Maybe she’ll stay in her bed all night tonight.” I shot back, “you know you just jinxed us, right?” We giggled, turned on our security alarm and went upstairs. And there you were. Three hours ahead of schedule. You didn’t even need us to snuggle you back to sleep, the comfort of our bed was enough for you. Instead of moving you, we both took turns kissing your soft little cheeks because we both know that this phase isn’t going to last forever, so we’re soaking it up as much as we possibly can.
