Yesterday morning, while Dan and I were still fast asleep, I gradually felt someone crawling into our bed. Doesn't happen every day but often enough. I wear an eye cover at night 'cause I like it dark and a certain little intruder always tells me that before she's halfway up our bed, I have a big smile on my very sleepy face.
I then scoop her up, still blind under my mask, and cuddle her in.
But something has been changing lately. I always scooped her up and she would fit perfectly in the crook of my tummy. But yesterday I realized - she just doesn't fit anymore. I tried to pull in all the parts and there was too much left over. I couldn't get it all.
I'm not ready for this big person - doesn't anyone have a way to keep 'em small?
Even when we're reading in our glider at night, she use to fit so perfectly on my lap. Now her legs and arms are all over the place. She slips off and has to sit up on the arm.
I guess I need to get ready!
