Night Waking

When she wakes at night, I go up to her room and calm her, nurse her, check her diaper, wrap her up in her so-soft blanket and then rock her, petting her fuzzy little warm head and humming to her. I often rock her mindlessly, enjoying her warm baby form on me until I realize that she has been sleeping for ages and I'm not rocking for her benefit any longer. And then I rock for a few more minutes anyway because I now that this won't last much longer and I need to savor every single minute of sweet sleepy babyness that I can.
