You were running a fever Monday but you still wanted to play outside and it didn’t seem to phase you much, other than your appetite. We laid you down at normal bed time and you went straight to sleep. All was well until about 1 am, you woke up and cried. Since you were running a fever, we quickly brought you to bed with us which was a struggle because you didn’t feel well and were very restless. Next morning, mommy takes you to the Dr and they say you have strep throat!! But, once again you were a champ all day and it didn’t slow you down a bit! You played outside with mommy and was in the best mood when daddy got home! After a mild bath, you weren’t even running a temp at all. We go to put you down to sleep and you weren’t having it! Mommy held you and rocked you for about an hour. Once she thought you were asleep, she tried to lay you down, but nope, you started crying. So daddy came in to relieve mommy. I held you and rocked you for another hour or so, but you would not lay down in the crib. Every time we tried to lay you down…you cried and cried!
So…finally, mommy comes in and says “let’s just put her in our bed.” I carry you in our room, I lay you down in our bed…you reached down and grabbed the covers and tucked yourself in!!😂😂. It was as if you looked up at me, smiled and winked, and then pulled up the covers and went straight to sleep. Mommy didn’t even get in bed right away as she went to the bathroom to get ready for bed, but you didn’t mind a bit. You were like, “I’ll be right here in yalls bed when you’re ready!”😂😂.
This is a memory I hope to remember forever. You’re sweet face as you pulled those covers up! Mommy and I have laughed all day about it. I wish I would’ve got a picture. I love you girl!
