Sweet Sesame

I'm not just saying it because she's my baby or because I want to publicly compliment my people making skilz, but Sesame is the sweetest baby.

She has recently decided to boycott bottles and she's started a whine that gets VERY annoying VERY quickly so it's not all sunshine and rainbows, but other than that she's the bee knees. (Come back when she's in the terrible twos and we'll see how chipper I am.)

Annabelle and Mr. Lion still sleep in our room at night. 
She takes naps in her crib and I have no doubt she could sleep in her crib through the night, but how will I hold her hand in the middle of the night if she's in another room? She loves having her hand held. 
I was all geared up to move her to her crib when I started listening to a biography of Charles Lindburg's wife. I got to the point where their son was kidnapped FROM HIS BEDROOM and decided that she's never going to sleep anywhere that's not within three feet of me. Bonus- she'll never want to sneak boys into a room she's sharing with her parents.
She LOVES to be held but hasn't been very into a lot of cuddling until lately. I am not complaining. 
We've been reading to her since she was born, but she's starting to pay more attention to the pictures. 
She's our favorite child.

Haha I have a feeling I will be the same way with our kids when the time comes. She is such a cutie.

Our Evelyn loves books too. Her favorite is when her big brother "reads" to her. It's the cutest thing!

Can I borrow her for a couple of hours? I promise I'll give her right back. I just want to remember what it feels like to hold a baby her size.

I miss being able to wake up and see my sweet girl next to my bed. So very very much. Don't rush that transition. You only get this time once and it will go by way too fast. You just wait until you are ready to do it. You aren't doing any damage to her by letting her sleep in your room.

Dear sweet baby Allison,

I love you so much. You are adorable and cute and squishy. Don't ever backtalk.

Love,
Your namesake.

Such a sweet, beautiful child! I hope I get to see her (and you) again soon. I just received a list of appointments Abel has over the next 3-4 months in Nashville. Maybe we can meet up again.
