Every night after we put the girls to bed, our little night owl likes to sneak out of her bed a few times to tell us, "I'm too scared.", "I have growing pains!", "Can I just get a one more kiss and a hug?", and always, "Mommy, could you sneak in my bed and sleep with me after?"
Sometimes when Jay and I are watching a movie downstairs and we go back upstairs after the movie is over, we find her sleeping on the stairs like this. Sometimes it's in the living room upstairs when we're watching t.v. We'll turn the t.v off and as we get up to go to bed, we find her sleeping 10 ft. behind us. We don't really know how long she's been "hanging out" with us quietly, but we find it kind of adorable that she loves us so much that she wants to be near us until the moment her eyes shut close.
My darling girl. How much I love you.
