Tonight ...


















tonight Lucy fell asleep in my arms watching American Idol reruns. It was really really sweet. She spent 1/2 hour wiggling and talking and wiggling and talking. I was about to take her to her room to read books and she asked me to rub her back (really she said: "It's ok if you rub my back" as she pulled up her shirt). I had some vicks out so I used that and after about 30 seconds she was snoring away so of course I had to rock for a bit longer with my sleeping baby in my arms. I keep wondering when will be the very last time she falls asleep in my arm ... will it be tonight, was that it??? That's why we kept rocking so I could hold on to her as long as possible.

May you have many days of rocking her in your arms. May she never outgrow sitting in your lap and falling asleep. May you get a midnight call from her dorm room, asking you to come and rock her to sleep!

she looks so little in that bed. She "acts" and "talks" like such a big kid, its hard to realize she's just 3. WOW. such a sweetie.
