My morning with Berlin

I love waking up with Berlin. Granted, she gave me many nights of very little sleep and I used to have the completely opposite feeling. However, she really seems to like getting up just in time to see me before I have to head off to work.

We (as of Tuesday) just put the girls together to sleep in their own room during the night. [Side note: I LOVE being able to use my bedside lamp again! I really haven’t used it for the past six months as there has always been a little girl sleeping by my bedside. AND, it is really, really, really great not to have to try and find an outfit and get dressed in the dark anymore!] It has been a little tricky because Berlin goes to bed ½ an hour to an hour earlier than Tryn and also gets up earlier. This little lack of sleep on Tryn’s part could account for the total meltdown that she had last night when I took her shirt off for her after she had tried herself for a good 5 minutes or so. Total meltdown. Anyway, as Tryn went to bed close to 9:00 (after dealing with said meltdown for a good 30 minutes or so) I didn’t really want her waking up with Berlin at 7:00 this morning. I snuck in, grabbed Berlin, and snuck back out with as little noise as possible, then I said good morning to Berlin. She whispered, “Ma, ma, ma,” and reached up and placed her little hand on my cheek. Then she leaned in with her lips pursed and planted a little, “Mm-ah,” on my lips. Ah! I am in love. Then she looked around and whispered, “Da, da, da.” I asked her if she wanted a bottle and she said, “Ba, ba.” While I was waiting for the water to warm up, we danced around the kitchen and she laid her head down on my shoulder to snuggle. She pointed at everything that caught her attention and whispered to me about it and we had ourselves a great time sneaking around the house, trying to stay quiet.

Then I had to pass her off so that I could get ready to go to work…I was definitely a little late. These are the mornings that I definitely don’t mind being late and that make me want to quit my job.
