A Reason to Stay in Bed

Olive has been on an amazing sleeping streak the last few weeks. I kept thinking it was just a fluke and that if I said anything out loud I would jinx it. It’s become another one of the many reasons why I love her so much. Easy baby=happy mommy.

When she wakes up in the morning Dave brings her into bed with me. She eats, hangs out, kicks, squeals, smiles and then falls back to sleep. If the stars are aligned, I can sneak away and leave her there to nap, while I get ready for the day.

But today, I didn’t want to sneak away. I wanted to lay there with her, stare at her little face, kiss those chubby cheeks, and maybe sneak in a few more minutes of sleep myself.

Then Gwen came in. “Mom, my diaper is wet.”

So I drag myself out of bed, away from this little piece of heaven, to go clean her sister’s bum. And these are the days of my life.

    I hope this sleeping pattern lasts for you. Her hair looks really light in the last two pictures.

    those picture are so precious, she looks so snuggly. I love a sleeping baby in a big bed, I wish you could spoon them w/o breaking them :)

    what’s not to love about these pictures…and this reminds me of those same sweet moments with my 7 wonderful babies. As they say, “Thanks for the memories….” (music notes here)
