I Think I Need Our Baby

Cora was asleep in her crib last night at bedtime. While I was getting ready in the bathroom I kept going back and forth as to whether she should stick it out in her bed or if I should bring her in.

I went into our bedroom and Jake said, "Do you want me to go get her?" I told him I didn't know. I stood there for a second and I said, "Let me try something." He said his prayers and climbed into bed.

He got settled and I curled up against him (what I wanted to try). I haven't been able to really do that in a long time. It was nice. Just as I was thinking about how I missed Cora right there by us, Jake said "I think I need our baby." I smiled. He went and got her, still sound asleep, and put her in the middle. I turned out the light, and we both snuggled around her.


  1. How sweet! It is hard to leave a sweet baby in another room during the night. I often slept better with Maylee in our bed. Now, she still comes in our bed if she wakes up in the middle of the night. I wish she would sleep in her own bed.....our bed isn't big enough now :)

  2. I loved sleeping with my girls when they were tiny. Your post brings back so many memories. It is such a sweet time when they are so little and you can curl up around them and hold them close. Enjoy those precious moments.

  3. That is one of the sweetest things I've ever heard. I love it when daddies just adore their babies!
