L goes to bed between 6:45pm and 7:00pm every night. Tonight, at 10:30pm, more than 3 and a half hours after she'd been asleep, I went up to scoop her up out of her crib and rock her. I just felt like it. She's almost as in love with her crib and her sleep as she is with her own daddy so I knew that doing so would be no biggie.
I rocked her in the quiet dark for nearly 20 minutes and then put her back to bed. As I laid her back down, she opened her eyes and smiled at me and asked for WoWo (William). I told her that WoWo was asleep and that was that.
I had left my camera on her bureau earlier in the day so I snapped a goodnight picture of her. She didn't even mind the flash and she was asleep by the time I even got downstairs.
That girl is pure heaven.
