We spent most of the day at home today. Kevin was on call last night, so he was exhausted, and Maya seems really sleepy lately too. Maybe she's growing... or teething... or maybe she has Seasonal Affective Disorder... Hmmmmm. Anyway, we're starting the "sleep training regimen" tonight, and I'm feeling nervous. I have to leave the house at 6 (2 hours before bedtime), so Kevin can go through Maya's bedtime routine with her, and then put her to bed. I feel so sad to leave her. I'm not sure how it happened, but I've grown very attached to the little munchkin, and I'm going to miss her terribly tonight. I know everything will be fine, but a little piece of me thinks that this is the end of an era. I guess in some ways, it's wonderful coming to get her in the middle of the night, and snuggling with her on the couch while she eats. I also feel bad that she doesn't know what's about to happen. She might have a lot of crying in store for her later. Poor little muffin. Hopefully she'll have a wonderful night of sleep tonight. Please keep your fingers crossed for us! Well... at least keep your fingers crossed for Kevin - he's the one who is going to wake up with her! I'm going to be covering my head with a pillow and trying not to fall apart!
"Look at me sitting on the couch like a grown up!"
"Wow! Mommy, this is a great self-portrait of us. You could be a professional "self-portrait-taker!"
"I love me some Daddy time. Do I look happy to you?"
