Today was a work-from-home day for me. Of course, I think LP knew this and at 7 this morning she made some noises, which we ignored, and she fell back to sleep. An hour or so later, I forced myself out of bed while the Hoos got ready for work, and hopped in the shower.
All continued to be quiet. After getting myself dressed and relatively put-together, I went to check on my little native.
I peeked my head over the top of the crib and was met by a big pair of beautiful blue eyes, and very excited, waving arms. It was fantastic. It reinforced to me that of course she knew she would be home with mommy all day. That is why she wanted to originally wake up at 7 - so she had more time with me.
