Yes, she really is asleep . . .
and yes, I really am jealous of someone who can sleep this easily.
But then, Katie is just that way. My youngest daughter, now six, has Down's Syndrome. For some, that would be a tragedy (it was for me, at least, in the beginning). Now, however, I find joy and humor in little things I really didn't notice as much with my other children.
Down's is interesting. Katie is, mentally, about 2 years old (coincidentally, my favorite age). She is playful, fun, and alert. She is also in that "all or nothing" mode parents know, love, and sometimes fear.
So she decided to go to sleep. She just couldn't quite make it into bed.
Sleep well, Kathrine. Daddy loves you.
