this afternoon.

This afternoon I attempted to put BG down for a nap after an extensive trip to Publix.

I laid her down and she went right to sleep. Good baby.

However, about thirty minutes into her nap, she woke up screaming her head off. She wasn't having the calming down thing, so I brought her into the living room to rock with me.

It took her a while to calm down and it didn't help that our dogs don't get the whole "don't bark while the baby is sleeping thing" (grr...), but I didn't mind.

Because somehow already, at seven months and some change old, my sweet baby has lost the desire to cuddle with her Mama. Boo.

So I sat there. No tv, no phone (gasp!), no computer. Just me and my sweet, sweet girl.

**okay, so I grabbed my phone to take this. Shoot me. It's documentation**

We sat and rocked for a while as I looked out the window and listened to her breathe, sigh, and stroke her Wubbie.

Gosh I love her.

And am so thankful for afternoons like this.
