I was up working the other night after Gaby and baby girl had gone to bed (I often use the end-of-the-night hours to squeeze in a bit of "me time") when, right on schedule, a sleepy high-pitched wail began to ring out from the bedroom. She was hungry, or so I thought. I quickly put away the laptop and headed towards the bedroom door. But before I could open it, I heard a deep sleepy Papa voice speaking in spanish. Then a spanish lullaby, and then... silence. Impossible! I couldn't believe that, for the first time, baby girl had gotten back to sleep with neither nursing nor rocking. I peeked in, and this is what I found:
Two sleeping beauties, snuggling together like a puzzle. Gaby had gotten her back to sleep like a pro. Looks like my nights may soon become a bit more restful. I had to sneak back in with a camera. It took all I had to refrain from waking them, squeezing them tight, and telling them how much I loved them both. I really love these two to pieces.
