We have had some difficult nights when it comes to bedtime recently. Evie is getting several teeth in right now, some of which are molars. As many know, molars are absolutely no fun for little ones. Evie has been very grumpy when we put her down, so we went back to sleep training mode where we stayed in the room and comforted her and worked our way to the door and out. Tonight was finally different, it seems like she is back to being herself again.
Evie was a happy girl tonight at bedtime. We always get her into her pjs, and then its story time. While getting her into her pjs she keeps signing and saying “book”. So I got us settled down into the arm chair in her room, and started reading her a book. She was quick to sign “more book please” after each book, she did it 3 times! How can I say no when she asks so nicely. I was even more surprised to see her put three different signs together. After the fourth book I said and signed “finished”, she turned around and gave me a kiss before we got up from the chair so I could put her in her crib.
Once in her crib she grabbed her little red panda and looked up at me again. I said goodnight to her and blew her two kisses. She suddenly blew two kisses back to me. It was a little moment that just melted my heart.
