Sleepy Boy

Now these are just too funny to not share! Last night when I told Anson to get ready for bed, he did. Sometimes he sleeps in his jammies and sometimes just his underwear - tonight is a no jammie night. But then Ben called me to "come here you gotta see this!" Anson had fallen asleep at the table with a bowl of animal crackers and a cup of water. He's sitting on a blanket and leaning on a throw pillow. He is so cute!

Ok, so I carried him to bed and wrapped him up in his favorite Diego blanket & pulled the covers over him. His legs were cold from dangling off the chair for a few minutes. But then, early this morning I thought I saw him walk into our room and go pet the dogs (they have a big fluffy dog bed by the wall). Well, Ben almost tripped over him this morning because he laid down by the dogs. But he didn't just wander into our room, he obviously had intentions of staying because he brought his pillow, blanket and his big stuffed (or not so stuffed - lost a lot of stuffing) dog to lay down on our bedroom floor by the dogs. I took this picture before he woke up, but he looked even cuter snuggled up to his stuffed dog when Ben found him earlier.
I let him sleep in this morning. When he finally got up, he came and found me. I said "Oh you woke up!" And he said "NO I'm going to lay down w/ Daddy!" ha ha I told him that Dad's at work and it's time to get up. He ran to go see if it was true. Then I found him trying to lay down again. Silly little guy!! Don't worry he didn't lay down for long - he's up and full of energy!!

When my kids get tired, they can sleep anywhere! We've caught our kids asleep in weird/funny places lots of times. I'll have to dig up some pictures and have a post of just sleepy poses. I caught Felicia asleep on the toilet before (that was funny) and Ashley fell asleep on the chairs at the table (while the chairs were pushed in - she was laying across a couple chairs). I've caught Nathaniel asleep on the couch (sitting up & laying down) while holding an xbox controller while the game is still on.

Have your kids ever fallen asleep anywhere funny?

I used to find my oldest asleep in his closet. He'd crawl out of bed and into the closet to sleep. It didn't last long, but it was a bit strange.

Hi there! Found you through Holly.

Four months after having my first baby, I found out I was pregnant again. I was sooo sick, so when the first learned to crawl, I had to baracade a little area for her to play safely just in case I had to make an urgent run to toilet or sink. ( I would usually end up being there for while)

Sometimes when I was done I would find her alseep in different areas after giving up on a clean escape. I did take a picture of a few. Man, she was determined.

I grew up in Richardson Texas, and Lindsey was in my stake. She wasn't a Maas back then. Also a few years ago we were in the same TX ward in Richardson again. This time we both had kiddos. I wish I still lived in Texas but my husband's job relocated us.

I love the sleeping pictures. I have a ton of Caden in some of the wierdest places. It is amazing how they can just crash in the strangest places, and in the strangest positions.

MY daughter at about age 1 had a habit of just crashing randomly on the floor asleep, and I have one of Cooper face down in a plate of spegetti in his highchair. Its all my kids favorite picture!
