I was babysitting the twins. One is teething and the other is proudly climbing into everything, even the dishwasher, where she stood and said “Bravo”. Now it is locked.
The little one couldn’t nap, and the other was sound asleep. I took her outside. It has been a long time since she wanted to cuddle because she is on the move. Rocking and singing to her, sweetly she fell asleep in my arms.
Oh, what a precious moment, just wish I had thought to grab a blanket. She was fine. I was cold. When they are upset, just soothing them is all that matters.
She had a great long nap, and I just guessed the other was still sleeping in her crib. I had no monitor. Turns out, she was still sound asleep. Don’t you love watching them sleep? Why is that?
Take care, Natalie
