They say the funniest things...

We have gotten into a very bad habit of letting Alexis come to bed with us early in the morning if she wakes up, instead of getting her back to sleep in her own bed. So, at some early hour this morning she woke up crying and I had Ross get her and bring her to our bed.

Around 9 am when she finally started to stir and begin waking up (I couldn't sleep this morning, and have been up since about 7:15, but I periodically laid down with the 2 of them for a few minutes a couple times.) Well, like most mornings the first words out of her mouth were, "grapes". I didn't respond to her yet. Then Ross got up to use the restroom and she said, "Daddy, lay down right here" and patted his pillow and then said, "longer" which means she wanted him to lay by her longer. Then she reached her little hand over to me and patted me on the cheek and said, "Mommy, grapes". We died laughing at her! She says the cutest things sometimes, and I know you are probably thinking this really isn't that funny. It's just one of those you probably had to have been there moments, but I thought I would share anyway!

So, being the good Mommy that I try to be, I got up and got her some grapes. While I was in the kitchen doing that I heard her yell from the bedroom, "cup too". She is quite spoiled I suppose! Oh well, I've been letting her do a few special things lately that we normally don't do since her little world is about to change when the new baby gets here!

This sounds EXACTLY like my kids! It's amazing how they expect Mommy to be their "servant"!!! LOL I sure wish Graysen would sleep in bed with us...she has NEVER...she has to have her bed...big time bummer for a mommy who LOVES to cuddle!

I love that Alexis likes to cuddle but sometimes I wish she would sleep more in her bed. She ends up in our bed 5 or so nights out of 7 and I think it's too much. Some weeks are better than others though. The only down side is that I'm afraid she will sleep with us a lot more when she can get out of bed herself and come whenever she wants to. With her in the crib it's a little easier right now. We have just gotten lazy about not wanting to get up and get her back to sleep because we are so tired, we just let her come to bed with us.
