Tonight when I got home from rehearsal Jo was having a hard time. She just wouldn't stay asleep whenever our sitter put her down in her crib. So I took Jo into our room and we snuggled. Ever since we started the weaning process she has begun to love snuggling. It makes sense. She curls up in my arms with her back against my chest and we spoon. She's my little baby spoon.
We were in bed for a bit and then she rolled over and grabbed her baby doll and pulled her close. We were just lying there in bed; Jo holding her baby and me holding mine. Then she reached her hand back to touch my face, to make sure I was still there. And we stayed like that for a while. It was so simple and so perfect.
And then she fell asleep.
