so sweet

Nina used to fall asleep in my arms in the glider all the time. Both Larry and I have spent nights in it reclined with a fussy baby. But that was years ago now and I have to admit I miss it. She has a bit of a cold right now and is willing to let me cuddle her more than when she is well. So when she started to look sleepy I started rocking away, her coltish legs folded up all around me, and soon enough sleep overtook her while I whispered sweet nothings in her ear. Amazing.

Anya still lets me get away with that kind of thing and I love it. And when Lily is hurt she'll let me cuddle her, too. Is it wrong that I sometimes hope she gets hurt just so I can get me some snuggles? Crap, that sounds way too much like munchausen by proxy. Must stop it.
