After last night’s remarkable success putting Maya down by herself to sleep, I tried again tonight. She woke up after about a half hour or so and wouldn’t let me put her back down. I gave up trying and am savoring every second of my warm little mammal sleeping on my chest. Her head has that delightful baby head smell and she is warm and relaxed and heavy in my arms and someday I won’t be able to hold her like this anymore. So I will take every second I can get.
