between us

being a mom, i feel like sometimes you gotta break your own rules. clémence hasn't been sleeping very well the past few nights and i think its due to more teeth coming in. we also moved her crib into our room in an attempt to get her used to sleeping in it rather than between us (which is probably harder on us than it is on her, but since she is getting closer to crawling we just felt it was safer). anyway, back to the whole rule-breaking thing...tonight it was just her and i (jeremiah had to work) and i put her to bed around her usual time. she slept soundly for about 30 minutes and then started crying on and off. this went on for a little bit and after trying a few times to get her back to sleep, i just decided that instead of sticking to my guns and letting her cry it out in the crib (which i hate doing anyway), i picked her up and cuddled her. poor thing...i knew she was tired but was in pain.

i laid with her on the couch for a while. she was just in the sweetest mood; quiet and calm and looking around and at me. it was a special little moment between us and wanting to capture it, i took some photos.

it's amazing how much your love can grow in such a short amount of time.
