Memories Captured: Sweet Dreamer



If follow me Facebook, you might have seen this sweet pic I shared last night. It was one of those moments I wanted to freeze forever. I wish I could stop time, and freeze my baby. Just like this. 

After a long day of chasing after a wild and crazy 7 year old I'm exhausted. He has so much energy and goes and goes and goes until he passes out at night. He's a talker. A singer. He's constantly making noise or asking me questions, or doing something I can barely keep up with. He was jumping on the bed last night, and being all sorts of crazy. Telling me we should skip school today because "It's Martin Luther King Day tomorrow!" Minutes before story time began I thought I was going to scream. 

But, then something happens. I take a deep breathe, open our book, and he finally begins to sink into the rest his little body and mind need. He snuggles close and lays his head on my chest to listen to the story. I can feel his sweaty cheek squish into me, and I know it's just a matter of time. After a few pages, he yawns. He strains to keep his eyes open so he can see the pictures. I feel his little body get heavier and heavier.  I hear his tender whisper, "I love you, Mom."

Then, by the final weight of him, I know he's dreaming.

I adore pics of sleeping babes. Even after the roughest day, they transform into the personification of beauty and peace, and all is well with the world once more. And quiet.

Great pic!

I love the line: by the final weight of him, I know he's dreaming.

Love that moment when they finally let go and let slumber take over. It's been years since I felt it with mine, but it's something I'll never forget.

Love this picture and what you did with it. Your color scheme was great. Ah, sweet, sleeping children. One of God's gifts to us.

Oh my! Love how you captured how I feel when I go check on my girls before I tuck my own self in for the night. I need to get a few snapshots of them sleeping. I haven't since they were little.

I've got a little guy like that. I think when they play harder they sleep harder :)
