A New Pleasure...

Now that Junia is sleeping better on a more reliable basis and we thus getting more sleep something wonderful has creeped into our lives. It does not yet have a name, or even a regular pattern exactly. It's not quite a date and not family time. Couple time sounds too romantic- and adult time sounds to pornographic. We are having time to ourselves again. Now Junia's infantile ignorance affords us privacy- but not alone time. But she has been going to bed sometime in the 7 o'clock hour. This means that we have been spending the hour after she goes to bed together. Talking, laying in bed reading, making a sweet snack, and generally just enjoying the company of one another without the dreaded fear that each moment awake is a minute of sleep we aren't getting.

This is wonderful, wonderful thing. I really love Sean, but I also really like being with him. And frankly, we weren't done being honeymooners by the time Junia rolled around so time to ourselves is such a treat. Even if it just involves loading the dishwasher and flipping over laundry.
