Home around 1:30 a.m., after a night experiencing Biophilia Live, and crashed on the couch since Holly was in my bed with Avery. Holly had to be work at 7:30 this morning, meaning she needed to leave my place by 7, meaning she needed to be up by 6:30 (though I think she woke up closer to 7).
I knew they’d be sleeping, so I came into my apartment as quietly as possible, and made every effort to not wake up Holly or Avery, who had told Holly to tell me (while I was still in New York) that he “would hear my footsteps when I came in.”
He also asked Holly to tell me that he loved me and missed me and missed me very much and would see me in the morning when we’d go to the gym. And he promised to pee in the potty when we were at the gym.
Loving him more than I did the day before is sometimes my favorite part of the day.
This morning, Holly waking up woke up Avery who came to me on the couch and asked me to “snuggle cuddle.” He got on top of me, under the blanket, and a few minutes later, after we heard Holly leave, he asked me to get into bed with him because he needed more room. So we got into bed, and promptly fell back to sleep, despite his insistence on most mornings that once he wakes up, he’s “up for good.”
