And just like that my little babe is becoming a girl. Sometimes, just for a moment, I catch a glimpse of the girl that she is becoming. For an instant her baby cheeks and gummy smile give way to a studious and inquisitive gaze and I see the girl she will be at 10. And then 'poof' it's gone and she's a babe in my arms again.
A babe who (touch wood) is sleeping again! I'm writing this with slight trepidation for there's a real risk that I might jinx things by blurting it out here, but, just quietly, we seem to have repaired her sleep. Thank you to everyone who sent words of encouragment and helpful advice. I'm not sure that we're completely out of the woods yet but we're making progress, and that's more than enough for now.
