second chances

i told sean that i wish i could go back to when max was 3 weeks old again.
so i could hold her the entire day and never put her down once.
i still look into her face and see that tiny little baby face staring back up at me.
after trying to wake her up for half an hour monday afternoon with no success,
i lifted her out of bed,
carried her downstairs,
and held her in the rocking chair for another half an hour while she slept.
not 3 weeks old,
but still just as great.
when she finally woke up she was not happy.
 5:48pm and the girl was just waking up from a nap.
made for a rough night,
but i'd go back and do it all over again.
once a sleeper,
always a sleeper.
god bless makenzie maxine.

What a sweet moment to just hold her and cuddle for that half hour. Wish i could get my kids to sleep like that!
