Sleepy afternoons

Naps are becoming a haphazard thing in this household. Allen tends to sleep a really long time when he naps, and then he ends up going to bed too late. So we have been trying a combination of shorter naps or no naps. Sometimes he freaks out when I try to get him to take a nap, and sometimes I don't fight him. Like when I'm already sick with the cold he gave me. Like I am this week.

So Tuesday, he argued that he did not want to take a nap, and I just did not feel like arguing. He was wearing a new sweater that kept falling off his shoulder. I caught him rubbing his cheek against his shoulder. I guess he liked the way it felt.

Somtimes, Allen likes to lay down on the floor and "just lay there." He did this Tuesday. After taking his arm out of his sweater so he could feel his shoulder. Here's how I found him a short while later.

Yes, he's asleep. With his arm out of his sweater. On the floor. In the dining room. After taking the picture I covered him with a blanket and he slept for over an hour.

We had a repeat of this today. Exactly the same, but with a different shirt. That wasn't falling off his shoulder, so I'm sure he had a more difficult time extracting his arm. He fell asleep in the same spot, and I covered him with a blanket again. He slept there for awhile, and then sat up, looked around, and called for me to help him get his arm back into his shirt.

Then we sat on the chair together. He fell asleep again ...

He slept here for about two hours. He must be overtired. I let him because I was working on my oral review and preparing for the rest of the meeting. And working on stuff for the shop. And still feeling sick.

Isn't he the cutest kid ever?

Yep...absolutely the cutest kid ever. I'm kind of sad that Henry has never fallen asleep at haphazard places around the house and I think it is hilarious.

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Hey, sometimes you just need to take a nap, wherever you may be. I'm partial to the couch myself.

More power to you Peanut. Your Uncle Josh has great fall-asleep-wherever-you-are power too.

He looks so content! That is the best feeling in the world...being so zonked out it doesn't matter where you're laying down...and then your mom comes and puts a blanket on you, those were the days!
