That one weekend Aspen didn't sleep.

I thought she was finally asleep. Her warm body was heavy on my chest, and her breathing was steady. Occasionally she twitched, as only sleeping babies do. I continued to hold her and breathe in the scent of her shampoo. Although it was late, I wanted to enjoy a few moments of stillness with her.

When her binky slipped out of her mouth and down my arm, resting in my lap, I thought for sure it was okay to put her in bed. I waited for a reaction from her but there was none. Just as I was about to sit up and move her from my chest to her crib, I heard it.

"Uh-oh."

A soft little whisper. She wasn't asleep. And she wanted her binky back.
