We’re trying out a new sleep shift set-up, so of course I’m exhausted, my eyes dry, and my mood just shy of belligerent. So I think this is a good time to focus on the good bits.
The feel of Lady Jr snuggled up on my chest.
The way her breathing changes when she goes to sleep.
The soft fuzz of her hair.
Her milk-drunk grin.
The way she’s more and more awake and aware and content to just look around and be.
The furtive snorts when she’s nursing.
Her death grip.
The way she’s hypnotized by our electric fire place heater.
Her tiny sighs.
Her unsuccessful attempts to eat someone’s neck.
The way Dr Lady looks at Lady Jr.
How she conks out while watching Strong Bad emails.
How fascinated she is by our string lights.
How every day she seems to be focusing more on what’s around her.
Her giant yawns.
Her cross-eyed exhaustion.
