Last night Waverly fell asleep snuggling up next to me on the couch. She was incredibly interactive. She wanted to look right into my eyes and listen to me talk to her. I recited some favorite books and sang a few songs. I told her over and over again that I thought she was beautiful and I love her so much. She was chewing on her tube, when all of a sudden she stopped chewing and fell asleep. We stayed that way for awhile. I forgot how lovely it feels to have a child fall asleep on you. The rhythmic breathing - warmth from their body - puddle of drool (yes, I even loved the drool last night!).
It was a moment. A little thing. And it was wonderful.
