It's lucky we had Sylvia because we need a cuddly child in our lives who is willing to sleep with us and Aubrey has finally decided that isn't going to be her. For the longest time we couldn't get Aubrey to go to bed on her own, then shortly after Sylvia was born (within a week) we started forcing her to go to fall asleep by herself and stay in her room that entire night (much to her discontent). A couple weeks ago, she decided she doesn't need us at all anymore and after saying prayers, singing the itsy bitsy spider, the ABCs, the number song and reading a book - she promptly says, I want you to leave.
Martin: She's growing up way too fast. She doesn't even want me to lay down with her anymore.
Thank the Lord for babies because I don't know if we'd be able to handle the emotional rejection otherwise.
