5:03 am this morning. My baby woke up crying. It took me a couple minutes to gain consciousness and stagger my way into the nursery. I picked her up, felt around the crib for her pacifier and cradled her to try to calm her down. She squirmed and whined like she didn’t want to be cradled. She wiggled until she found her way up to my shoulder. Her little body was like a little bear cub clinging to a tree, she rested her head on my shoulder and everything went limp. I realized my baby became a little girl overnight.
