She always wins

Aubrey has been having a tough time lately with getting her last tooth (molar) in and it's affecting her sleeping. She wakes up in the middle of the night crying, sometimes she falls back asleep and other times not at all. Last Saturday night she went to bed around 9 pm and woke up at 1pm (and I was still awake). I pulled her into our bed and she kind of slept for a while, rolling back and forth from Jared's pillow to mine, to perpendicular to us and doing all sorts of crazy positions. Then I tried putting her back in her crib and let her cry for a bit. She was silent for a while and then the crying started again...back in our bed. After jumping and throwing tired fits she fits she laid in my arms like a baby, looked up at me and pointed to her eye and said "eye" then to her chest and said "love" and pointed at me and said "you". Jared and I just looked at each other as if to say how could you be mad at that! I taught her to say "I love you" with the actions but it's only recently that she's actually said the words and this was about the 2nd time she's ever said it on her own without us trying to get her to say it. What can you do? I think we cat napped the rest of the night and finally it was morning. She was awake from 1am and we went to church (sacrament only ) and came straight home to bed for a very long nap!

Those are the moments which make being a parent worthwhile. :)
