The Best Part of the Day!

When I was pregnant, one of the things that I said I would never do was co- sleep. "Oh no!!! It's too dangerous, " I'd say. Well, Elijah's here and for the past couple weeks or so, he's been co- sleeping!! Since Elijah isn't quite sleeping through the night yet, I sometimes bring him to bed with me in the exta room after his last early a.m feeding so I can get a little extra rest for a couple more hours. He will usually sleep til 6 at least, then he has a hour or so after he nurses that he doesn't want to go back to sleep and wants to play instead. This is absolutely one of the best parts of the day. We'll lie there and make faces, play tickle games, and mocking each others sounds until he gets tired and ready to nap again. His smiles just take my breath away!! There is nothing better than waking up with him lying there sleeping like an Angel. There are so many mornings that I don't even go to sleep right away; I just lay there and watch him. When Todd doesn't have to work or didn't work late, I take Little Elijah in our room so that he can enjoy it as well. He loves his Daddy so much! Those moments are priceless!

I decided to take some pics today and just wanted to share.

Snuggle time with Daddy :)


Sweet Dreams!

"I'm up!!! Time to play!!!!"

The happy family!!!
