friday nights used to be for partying...

kathryn grace:

right now you are sleeping in our big bed snuggled up with your dad.
you're congested, coughing and your allergies are horrific.
benadryl isn't working and your PA/dad says we can't give you anything else.
i have a feeling tonight is going to be a long one.

two hours ago, you coughed yourself awake and cried for me.
i scooped you up and carried you to the rocking chair.
i snuggled you in with 3 different blankets and rocked you back to sleep.
instead of putting you back in your crib, i just held you and thought of how you've changed my world.
i fell asleep listening to your breathing.
i can't remember the last time i felt so at peace.

thanks for making me a mother.
i love you.

ps. i just moved you to your bed since you were squirming like crazy. we've never slept with you in our bed before and i think tonight will be rough enough without being kicked in the head multiple times. 

pps. as i was moving you, you opened your sweet little eyes and said "movie??" oh man, you kill me. that would be a no, little one. i think there will be enough movie watching/couch snuggling tomorrow.
