I just couldn't bear to put her down for her nap this afternoon. All I wanted to do was tickle her belly with my hair so I could hear her deep chuckle.
I buried my face in the side of her neck and breathed deeply. She smells like heaven. I made silly faces until she smiled and her deep dimple appeared.
I didn't want to be away from her. But, finally she won. I laid her down on her soft sheepskin. Immediately she buried one chubby fist in the wool, and the other between her rosebud lips. She wriggled until she found her perfect spot, eyes closed, already nearly asleep.
My Eliza. Pure delight.
