Wordless Wednesday: Next stop, Snoozetown

Matching jammies are a must.

Many items need to make their way into the family bed, including my old teddy bear, Boris. Or, as Mikko has for some reason renamed him, Morris. (This is one of those pictures where Mikko looks so like Sam in his childhood photos it makes me smile.)

Mikko had his second dental extraction this day and was feeling a tad fragile. I looked over in the afternoon and saw him sleeping sitting up. (He hasn't napped since he was 2.) I scooted him down onto the couch and added a blanket — but not before I took a picture.

On a day soon thereafter, I peered in my rearview mirror when I parked and realized: Both kids were asleep! Will wonders never cease?

Since this was after a morning fraught with crying and even some anxiety-induced vomit, I enjoyed the time to play on my cell phone and let the kids sleep their crankies away. Isn't sleep the best?

Aw.

I'm glad Mikko got a nap after his rough day. Poor guy.

Rachael said...

I love the matching jammies, too. I wonder if the Critter would go for it?

Melissa said...

Nope, not much sweeter than sleeping babes... or matching jammies.

Nothing like a sleeping baby. They look so sweet and innocent.

Oh my goodness—there's just nothing like sleeping babies...no matter how big they get! I love the matching jammies, and congratulations on the surprise naps, too. =)

We're finally getting back into our nap routine! He went two whole days without a single good nap! As you can imagine, I'm only typing this because he's snoozing away next to me ;)

Aaaacck! Matching PJs! SO CUTE!!! (Runs to sewing corner to consider matching PJ options for three year old and new baby on the way ... )

Joe hasn't napped regularly since he was two either, which makes those occasional conk-outs all the more special and lovely. Like a gift.

I hope Mikko's feeling okay after his extractions. Ouchy. Poor kiddo.
