Mia and I have a morning ritual that goes like this.
We hear her in her bed and one of us goes to get her.
She snuggles in bed next to me and nurses away. Sometimes she falls back asleep next to me for a few minutes. Usually she'll nurse from both sides.
And then she'll just lie there with me for a while. She enjoys playing with my phone or decides she wants more to eat and finds what she's looking for on her own, or just hangs out.
Yesterday morning, this was us.
I leaned in and whispered to her,
"Mia, you are a joy."
Because she is.
