I want to remember.

Tonight is a wonderful night.

  
Tonight is wonderful because my husband, sad that we didn't get to really spend time together tonight, got up with me at 1 in the morning while I pumped.  He even tried really hard to stay awake and talk to me. Earlier I had gone to the gym despite feeling icky and came home from the gym feeling even worse so I went straight to bed at 9:30 instead of pumping or cleaning up the house. Although he was waiting to play a game of scrabble with me, he brought me some medicine instead, made sure I was comfortable and picked up the house for me while I slept.

 The second reason why tonight is wonderful is because Riley came to bed with us.  I know that a few months ago I was complaining, or venting, about how she refused to stay in her bed and we missed having the bed to ourselves. Eventually she went back to her own bed only coming to our bed in the morning, but once or twice a week in the middle of the night she wakes up and wants to come to bed with us.  We are more than happy to let her since its not every night, haha.  Tonight though, I was up finishing laundry after I pumped and I heard her cry. She either wanted her pacifier that she couldn't find or milk. I went in and sure enough she was standing which meant she wanted some milk and most likely to sleep with us.  

 After getting her milk she walked into our room and instead of her usual, walking to Leifs side of the bed, she walked to mine.  I loved it.  She got comfortable on my pillow and once I climbed in, she wrapped her arms around my neck and kissed me.  She stayed like that until she fell asleep. Opening her eyes every once in awhile to give me a kiss and smile at me.  It was perfect and at that moment I could care less that she was slowly edging me out of the bed. There are so many special moments that I share with her, but this one was really special to me.  Riley usually prefers Leif to me, something I don't really mind. But at night she always prefers to fall asleep next to me. I don't take that for granted. I cherish it. This was a moment and night I want to remember. 

I feel so loved and appreciated!
