I started bedtime with her around 730. (I'm trying to slowly move her time clock later with the hopes that the time change won't be the beginning of months when 500 is her usual time to wake up!) At 815 I left her room, five minutes later I heard her singing and then around 830 she was calling for me so I crawled in with her.
Once in awhile I really don't mind it if she needs me to help her relax a little bit. I'm not going to have these moments forever!
A few minutes after she settled down she reached over and rubbed my cheek to make sure I was still there. It tickled a little.
What I didn't love was that I can't remember exactly what time I crawled in with her which also means I have no idea how long I fell asleep for! It was probably only a few minutes but these days a few minutes at the wrong time of day will make the rest of my night completely messed up. Too bad I didn't just pass out and stay there sleeping peacefully for the rest of the night!
But really, I'm going to remember her little fingers on my cheek more than a few lost hours of sleep!
