This morning in the early just before dawn hours, I had fed Keeley and put her back in her bed, although she wasn't asleep yet and I knew it. It is Saturday as I write this. My thought was that I would wake Keith to take a turn with her if she got fussy and didn't go right to sleep. After a few minutes of quiet, she started crying and instead of following my plan, I got up with her and rocked her in the chair and fed her for just a minute more. When she was done, I looked down and smiled at her. She looked back at me and smiled the sweetest little smile that melted my heart. I held her close for a minute more, then laid her back in her bed where she went to sleep on her own. I was so glad that I hadn't passed such a precious moment off onto someone else, although Keith might be sorry to have missed it.
