Children think they know.. but they have noooo idea!

Whats your favorite {sleep} position?

Looking through my pictures, I have realized I take an unusual amount of photos of Dylan sleeping. He tends to sleep in some odd positions, angles, places..

Kids are a mess when they sleep! They flop and flip and roll and flail.

As we fall asleep with our child, we can picture it in our minds.. your wee one is curled up perfectly next to you, laying perfectly still, fitting perfectly in the folds of your body as you are perfectly and comfortably laying in the exact middle of the bed.

HAH!

It’s not only the awkward sleeping moments that I capture, it’s the cute and normal ones too! I’m a mom.. come on.. of course I take photos of my kid sleeping! I want to capture him in the moment and keep him small forever! And also, he is holding still and quiet and clean, I want to remember how peaceful he was and how at peace I was at this moment.. because pretty soon he will be running around, diving off the couch, his face covered in who knows what and he will most likely be missing a sock.. or both socks.. or his pants. *sigh* That exhausted me just thinking about it!

Here are a few of my favorite “Sleeping in the car seat” shots:

 

And then we have the “Sleeping on the ground” series:

 

                                              The “In a sleeping bag on the bed”

 

                                                           The “Face Plant”

 

                                                           The “Hand Pillow”

                                           

              

 

 

 

 

               

Then we have the “Middle of the bed” Sprawl

 

 

I love cuddling up with Dylan in bed.. but I need my space too.. As you can clearly see.. he is all over the place. He may not be perfect, but I am perfectly happy. I wouldn’t have it any other way 😛
