My Favorite Night

My absolute favorite part of the day is feeding Ember a bottle before she goes to bed. I probably should have taken her off a bottle already but I just can't give it up. She lays in my arms, cuddles, and drinks her bottle and all the frustrations of the day seem to melt away and I realize how much I love my little girl. Tonight was especially nice because she was so ready to go. I was expecting the nighttime ritual to take longer tonight because she took a long afternoon nap and seems so awake. At about 6:45 she asked for bath time (her word for it is "Boo-a-boo". I have no idea where that came from but she says it every night.) and being the nice mommy that I am I said "Sure, we can have bath time now. She got in and I barely got her washed and rinsed and she wanted to get out. Again, being the nice mommy that I am I said "Okay". Then we went to read books. One book later she was running into the other room for her milk. She slurped down her bottle with her eyes half shut and laid on my shoulder while I brushed her teeth and carried her to her room. After a couple extra cuddles and a kiss goodnight she was in bed. 7:01 p.m. Ahh BLISS... I think it was the best night ever.
Oh no, I spoke too soon... I think I hear her crying.

(FYI: The pictures have nothing to do with the post. I just think she looks adorable dressed up for church. The first one is after her nap. She is looking her disheveled best.)

I had Sheldon take a picture of me feeding Alayna before bed so that I could have a picture memory of those sweet times :)
