Well it's only 2:00 a.m. and it feels like it should be morning already. I have been rubbing Natalie's feet since I put Evie to bed. She just isn't feeling well. She said, "Mom, when you sit by me and rub my feet it makes me feel like I'm not sick anymore." I have attempted to go to sleep many times, but she will call for me to return to her bedside. It reminds me of when I was younger. Things were always better when my mom was by my side; even if it was just to hold my hair back while throwing up.
Natalie had just slipped back to sleep so I laid down for a minute, but of course felt like I should make this post. After all this is my journal and I don't want to forget any details. Someday this will all be behind us and I hope to always remember the ups and downs in detail. Maybe this way I can never forget to help others that may find difficult times, as I will always have this journal to remind me of this time we have received great help.
I asked her before going to bed if she would like to listen to some music to help calm her. She asked for primary songs. I found a lovely CD someone had given us of primary songs in a lullaby version. I went to turn it off and she said, "Mom, just put it on repeat so I can listen to it all night."
We are surrounded by many tender mercies. Thank you everyone for your prayers. They are truly helping. I know Heavenly Father has even addressed the little details. I have never had a baby sleep so well at night like sweet Evie does.
I better run she is calling for me to rub her feet. :)
