Julia still wakes up pretty regularly at around 11pm wanting the quick reassurance of her mother. It’s now a routine. I go upstairs where she is crying in bed, scoop her out of the darkness of her bed, then I bring her down to the couch where Izumi and I are usually watching the evening news. Julia usually drifts off to sleep 10 or 15 minutes later but this evening there was something that was keeping her attention this evening but the picture was just too perfect.
