Ashley woke up crying at 4:30 am, so I went to put her back to bed and LOVED rocking her back to sleep rubbing that little toddler back that is OH so soft. "Blankie" she told me so that I would cover her feet as she drifted back to sleep. I could have held her for the next few hours and kissed her endlessly but alas, I did not (thus this post). :)
AND...I went to check on Mia and she woke up and so sweetly said, "Hi, Mom."
As I covered her up again and started to leave the room, she said, "Mom, can I tell you one thing?"
"Sure," I said.
"I love you," was her precious reply. Well now, I HAD to crawl into her bed and snuggle with her AFTER THAT and then she said,
"I am oh so very tired," and with that, she drifted back to sleep.
Those are the moments that I hope I will always remember. SO PRECIOUS and SWEET!
I shall try to get back to bed but I think I might just be up for the day.
