I wake up around 6 these days. Because Lily wakes up around 6 these days. Even when Adam gets up with her, I can still hear her in the next room taking her bottle. Two weeks ago, we stopped nursing. She hadn't gained much weight, so we switched to formula. It wasn't as hard a transition as I thought it would be. After all, I want her to be healthy. But in the mornings, when I lie in bed, I miss her beside me, nursing quietly.
After her morning bottle, we usually put her back in her crib, knowing that she won't go to sleep right away. Instead, she squeals and rolls around and amuses herself. Mornings when Adam is gone, I sit with a cup of coffee and listen to her. I wonder if she'll fall back to sleep. Some mornings she does.
