It was The Best.
Over the last week, when I bring her to bed with me at 4 am (yes, that's when she has been waking up - gag) for her morning feeding, I've been trying to get her to go back to sleep so that her whole schedule won't be ruined. One day, I put her on my chest, tummy to tummy with me, and the sweet little pumpkin fell right to sleep. It was absolute heaven.
I've been taking full advantage of it. Every morning after nursing; in the afternoons on the occassions that she needs a nap; in the evenings while I'm rocking her. I adore tummy time.
In the midst of a busy day, in the midst of the stress of the rest of life, it is a little slice of perfect peace for just Leah and me.
Today, I am thankful for the return of tummy time.
