Dear Brooklyn,

We spent some of our Christmas eve sitting in a doctor's office.

You woke up in the middle of the night not feeling well. You haven't been feeling great for about a week now but this was different.... and all too familiar. I was positive it was another ear infection.

And of course it was on the eve of another holiday.

So after some time rocking you on the couch while you fell in and out of sleep and weighing our options we headed off to the doctors to get you some antibiotics.

After a surprisingly short wait, my diagnosis was confirmed and we were off to our Christmas eve party at your great-grandma's where you spent half the night sleeping on Grandpa Killian and the other half snuggling with me, even with all the craziness going on.

So now you are curled up in your crib sleeping and the house is clean and ready for Santa to come. I hope you sleep well and wake up happy and excited for Christmas.

I love you very much.

Sincerely, Lori
