Sleep, impressions and love. 

It’s been two nights in a row now. Sophia and her night time chats. She would talk about the things that left a deep impression on her for the day or the week or the month. 

Cos she has been talking abut Godpa and Baby Kayleigh when we were at Sentosa (that was weeks ago) and talking about Daddy’s goats (month ago) and then today she talked about the doctor who gave her a sweet again (two days ago). 

And today we brought the girls out on a swim again. Daddy found her a green leaf that was floating around the pool and she held on to it like it was the dearest treasure. 

When she came back up from the swim, she told joy all about “the leaf”. 

“I take a leaf!” 

So the night time chat tonight centered around the leaf. 

“Mama, i take a leaf!” And “I went swimming!” She literally shouted it to my face. That’s how excited she is. 

So she repeated this and the other stories to me and I got tired. So I laid her down on her cot. She continued talking a little, kicking her feet around a little and eventually stilled herself asleep. 

Second night running. The night before she was talking so much, I just laid her down to bed and she feel asleep immediately. 

Is this going to be the time? 

Where she learns to sleep on her own! 

I pray so. 

And then now at 2am, her daddy wakes me up. We have a diaper leak. 

This time, it was all over. Clothes had to be changed. Bedsheets too. So I carried her and changed her. She was sleepy. But she still managed to look up and say “hi mama.” 

Then she refused to go into her cot. She wanted to go into our room. So we laid her there whilst she drinks her milk. And after she was done, she just rolled over next to me, cuddled right next to me and was all ready to sleep. 

I was taken aback, I was prepared for a long “carrying session” to make her fall back to sleep again after all that commotion. 

But she snuggled right next to me, whispered “hi mama” again and fell right back to sleep. 

I laid there right next to her, falling off the edge of the bed. But for that moment thanked God for these two dear little lives. 

They hold us so dear. And I pray that we will have a longtime to spend together.
