Our Time

Can you tell...I can't get enough of this one.  Looks like Lily got her mama's long legs.  They remind me of frog legs.  Love it.  I really could just stare at her all day long and be perfectly content.  Sadly, with two other little ones that need me the only time I really get to do that is in the middle of the night when I am feeding her.  Last night she was a little fussy.  When I first hear the cry that she is hungry in the middle of the night it is a little bit of a dread.  All I think about is how tired I am and just wish (beg, pray) that she will go back to sleep.  Once I am up however, and get her into my arms, all of that dread just melts away.  There we are, just the two of us and no one else is needing me.  I can play with her fingers and toes and kiss her little cheeks.  I feed her, change her and snuggle her back to sleep.  Morning comes pretty quickly but I just have to remember how short this time is.  Before I blink, she will be out of this stage and on to a new one.  I am trying to cherish every minute with her now.
