like a rock

Today will mark day five of life as a SAHM. I couldn't have imagined it being any sweeter! My time with Brady during the day has been wonderful, exhausting, playful, and not a dull moment is in sight for he and I. He thoroughly enjoys our morning walks with Grandmom and I. I love getting outside and getting that heart rate going. We usually have color time, puzzle time, reading time and lots of eating time. No regular nap time for him, which is unfortunate for me. But it never fails. He always falls fast asleep in the car on our way to pick up Luke, Maddie and Micah from school. And boy does he sleep hard. Like a rock.

Don't even think about waking him up while in this state. It can't be done. Experts have tried and tried. By experts I mean his three older sibings screaming in his ear "Brady wake up!". 


Look at that precious face? You would never think for a minute he screams at the top of his lungs when he doesn't get his way. Or hits Micah on the back constantly. Or sneaks into his sister's room and puts on her flavored chapstick. Not this sleeping babe.


Or that he freaks out in the checkout line at Wal-Mart every time because of the toy cars he so desperately needs.

How happy I am to be able to share this time with him. To nurture him. To comfort and lead him. To teach him. Except of course, when he is sleeping like a rock. How happy I am for those times as well!

It's amazing how angelic they look when they are sleeping isn't it? I almost forget the screaming fits they have pitched when I see them sleeping :) I left you an award over at my blog.
