It was really early when Emmy woke up this morning. After she ate, she fell back asleep. I excitedly laid her softly next to me, eager to get a little bit more sleep.
But first, I got up to get a drink of water. When I tiptoed back into the room, I was happy to see Em was still in the same position (and therefore, asleep). I eased into the bed, curled onto my side, sighed with joy and… looked directly into the open eyes of a happy, and well rested, baby girl.
