I'm not a morning person. Duh. We know this. But this morning I heard Emeline sobbing hysterically over the monitor a few minutes before 6am. Here I am, snuggling and feeding Lucy who's laying beside me, staring at the monitor, pulling it to my ear to hear my 2 year old hysterically sobbing for....her sister. And holy heart melt batman.
In between the gasping-for-breath sobs I'm hearing this:
"Where's Lucyyyy girlllll? I need my baby sissssterrrrr. Lucy's sleeeepin'. Ennamine see Lucy girlllll, *sobbbbb* I need my sister, baby sisterrrrr where are you? Lucy girl....Luuuucyyyy!"
Freaking sweetest thing ever.
We thought she'd put herself back to sleep, but after some time we realized that wasn't going to happen so Declan went in there to see if he could cuddle her back to sleep, and well, YEA RIGHT. Girlfriend is energized by people. So that didn't work.
Next thing you know, the whole family ended up on the couch by a little after 6am, snuggling and watching Disney Junior.
That never happens on a weekday. So I kind of loved it. All of my little family snuggled under a blanket, soaking in the last half hour before Declan had to leave for work. It felt kind of...warm and cozy and memorable in a weird way. Everyone slowly waking up, cozy in jammies, still dark outside, you know?
And then Declan left for work. He forgot to take the dog out. Mac reminds me by
Oh. And the sun just came up.
Thanks reality. It's gonna be a loooong day. :)
