My Baby

11:00 pm as I walk to bed, I check on Lucas. 
Walk downstairs and get the camera. Hope the flash doesn’t startle him too much. 
He wanted to wear those sweats tonight. And a tank top. No footie pajamas for this boy. 
He looked so big to me! 
This might be the last picture I have of him sleeping in his crib. 
Next week is transition to big boy bed. 

Sleeping so sweetly.

So quiet.

Do you see his biceps?

His knees were up, so I laid them down.

I put two blankets on him.

Kissed his forehead.

Stood there and stared at him for a couple minutes.

Thank Jesus that he choose me to be the mom of this kid.

Love sleeping with my babies and love watching my babies sleep.

  1. I too often stare at my sweeties while they are sleeping. I love how innocent they look….and how quiet they are!! Lots of luck on the bed transition! I have to do that sometime in the near future as well and am not looking forward to it!

  2. I am addicted to checking in on Little Moo at least twice before I go to bed – and I have loads of gorgeous snaps of her in some of the most bizarre sleeping positions too 🙂 Do you think it will be weird to still do this when they're 18?? Ha ha… x

  3. Love that pic! When my kids were young I used to go watch them sleep. So innocent and full of life. The giggles they have during the day round out the “full of life” meaning for me.
