I woke up around 3:00 to feed the baby, as usual. When she was finished, I put her back in her bed, groggily turned off the light, and rolled over to cuddle with Jeffrey.
And discovered why I had been able to sleep so soundly before.
I had been sprawling.
Which meant Jeffrey was missing.
When this fact finally sank in, I got up and went in search of him.
I found him cuddling Keith in his bed.
Jeffrey didn't sleep well.
He worried about Keith going to school for the first time ever.
Aww, isn't that sweet?!
The morning dawned bright and early, and smelled lovely as mornings are apt to do.
Perfect for picture taking.
And Faye, of course wanted to get in on the action.
As I waited in the drop off lane, I got a little misty eyed. Keith is growing up! By the time it was my turn to drop him off, it had passed, though, in all the rush to get him out the door and on time.
And then Faye and I went shopping. She has a funny fascination with the big red balls in front of Target.
She cannot pass by one without insisting on playing on one of them. Funny girl.
Keith loved school. His school is wonderful!
We went to Red Robin to celebrate.
My baby is all growing up. Sniff.
