oh, sweet nap time

Because it's been a whole week since I've posted a baby picture and because I am proud of the restraint I have used...indulge me a little today.



Our sweet baby boy is two weeks old today.  As you can see he has mastered the art of nap time.


What would it be like to sleep so peacefully...to sleep like a baby?


Since I'm on a bragging role here, I have to say he is the very best baby.  Only cries when he's hungry (which is pretty much every time he's awake) or needs a changing.


He can withstand the noise and rough play of his big brother, who is always close by and the rowdy cheering of a NASCAR race with the volume up way too high.


He has even captured the heart of our sweet Bichon Bear who has been gracious enough to share his sliver of sunshine with him.


What a joy a baby can bring to a topsy turvy world.  God's perfect plan and gracious gift to this imperfect family.

xo, Patty

  3. You have every right to be proud - as does every Grandma! He is beautiful Patty. A real blessing for sure - babies remind us to slow down and smell the roses.

  10. He is precious! My Mother used to say that when babies smile when they are sleeping, they are playing with the angels.
    Loved the picture of him smiling in his sleep. He sure does have a lot of beautiful dark hair!

  15. he is adorable so sweet! And I love the smile - my granny said when my boys were little that the smile while sleeping means any time later will come a new baby-because the baby is dreaming and smiling of it...thank you for sharing those lovely pictures!
