A portrait of sleep in my family every week in 2018

This sweet girl. I so rarely get a chance to capture her sleeping. Before I was pregnant with her sister, she was so close to sleeping solo in her own bed most nights. Then I got pregnant, and getting up in the middle of the night became impossible, and somehow her bed was more comfortable than mine. I think maybe it was my subconscious, realizing I would never get to sleep next to her in quite the same way. But now it’s been nearly two years since I’ve slept next to this girl, with the exception of when both little ladies end up in my bed, and I miss it dearly sometimes.

She’s growing so very rapidly and it makes me miss her even when she’s right next to me. Those chubby little toddler cheeks are long gone. But the girl she’s becoming, the smart, creative and captivating girl, is so wonderful, and so captivating that I love her just as much.
