Kisses From Julie

I realized lately I have the worst memory.  If I don't write things down or set reminders in my phone, then it doesn't happen.  I'll even go to the store for something, then completely forget it because I didn't write it on my list. 

I never want to forget the little things my kids do at this age.  It is seriously such a fun age (minus the whining). One thing Julie does that is the absolute cutest thing is give me goodnight kisses.  This past month we have separated the triplets at nighttime.  Cruz and Kash sleep in the same room in their bedroom and Julie sleeps in the guest bedroom in a pack n play.  She would stay up an hour or more after we would put them to bed and keep her brothers up, and then she would get upset when they would wake her up bright and early the next morning.  So now she gets to stay up and chat with herself in her own room and sleep in as long as she wants.  

Well, every night she'll just babble and talk to herself in her crib - lights off and sound machine on.  You can hear her cute little voice from outside the room.  One night she was babbling away two hours after we put her to bed.  I wanted to make sure she didn't poop so I went in to check on her.  I picked her up and she immediately laid her head on my shoulder, then two seconds later looked up at me and gave me a kiss.  I completely melted.  Then she laid her head back on my shoulder.  Two seconds later she looked up at me and gave me a kiss, then laid back on my shoulder.  She seriously did this twenty times.  It was THE CUTEST thing.  I didn't smell any poop so I laid her back in her crib, said I love you, and she went right to sleep.  I didn't hear a peep from her after that.

So now it's a tradition.  I'll put her to bed, then go put the boys to bed.  Ten minutes or so later I can hear her talking away to herself.  I'll go in and hold her for a minute or two - get 10 kisses - then put her back to bed.  She always does the same thing every night (unless she's super exhausted and goes right to sleep).  Her little giggle after every kiss is my favorite.  Oh I just love her.
