Daily Dose of Baby Love

Davie and I have a little ritual.  When she is calming down for a nap or especially for bedtime, I hold her standing right by her crib.  We don't rock or bounce.  We just stand there, fairly still, maybe swaying a little bit.  She smashes the side of her head up against my face, and I smooch-smooch-smooch her temple.  (I think her Nanna started this one weekend and it caught on.)  At first I thought it was something that I made happen . . . but now I believe she wants/needs it.  It is soothing for both of us.  Then I lay her down and usually that is that.  

I love her.
