jasper has been climbing into bed with us lately – she is prone to nightmares and “needs some company” after having one…

i love her clamoring over me – i know it won’t last forever so i savor it while it does…  a super cuddly girl all curled up between jon and i is a nice thing to wake up with.

i can’t remember who gave this to her (barbara, was it you and dad?) but here is proof that she uses it!

not all the time but often enough that it’s starting to look well-loved 🙂

the other morning, she was trying to sleep in a bit later than usual (ah, summer time)  in our bed and the sun was not working in her favor: 

“mama, too bright!  i need my monkey mask!”

“ahhhh, that’s better.”

uh, huh.
