Prior to blogging, I kept a message board to keep up with friends and family through pregnancy and mommyhood. I'm working on bringing those posts to this blog.
Jeff has been out of town for work this week so Teagan and I have been spending a lot of quality time together.
My favorite part of the week has been figuring out how to get a good night's sleep. T has been wakin gup a few times each night. We finally have a good plan in place. When she wakes, it is usually because she has to potty. Depening on what time she wakes, sometimes she is "awake" after pottying and sometimes she is falling asleep on the toilet. If she will easily sleep again, she goes back to her bed. Otherwise, she comes to bed with me until we have to get up to start our day.
This morning, she woke at 5 (not bad) and we did the potty thing and headed to my bed. The thing tha tmade this morning special and different was the cuddles. She wanted to be held and she wanted her arms around my neck. We lay together, wrapped up in each other, dozing off and on, for a good half hour.
I never fell back asleep because I wanted to memorize every single moment. Jeff is back tonight so he will be in the bed tomorrow morning. And the baby will be here in a few weeks. This was one of the last times that I had Teagan totally and completely to myself. We were completely absorbed in each other.
I know I'm going to cherish this morning for a long, long time. I bet I bring it up when I toast her at gradutation or her wedding. It was one of those moments that you can't really find words for... that you want time to freeze for so it will last even longer...
But eventually the day had to begin.
