sleeping handsome

I can't say sleeping beauty because Micah is a boy, although he is pretty beautiful with that awesome blond hair and big blue eyes! I was alone tonight because my musical husband Zach had another concert he was doing. It was really nice though because I got tons of Micah time. I loved keeping Isabella (how could you not), but having more than one means you have to divide your time and attention so the one on one time I used to get with Micah had been less lately. We played, played, played all day today. This evening after his bath we were sitting on the floor and he just came up and sat on my lap. TOO SWEET! We rocked and tickled and sang and laughed and even turned upside down (well he did) a few times.

After he fell asleep I didn't have much else to do so I went and stared at him a few times. I have always been a little overly obsessive with checking on him at night, but this time I just enjoyed the view. He sleeps just like his daddy, which is like a rag doll. He throws himself into odd positions or stretches out as far as he can while on his stomach. However he sleeps, he is still adorable. Sitting in a dark, peaceful room watching your child sleep is, in my opinion, one of the most precious parts of being a parent. Staring at that miraculous creation and wondering what he will be like in the future and how he has been in the past is...I can't even think of a word to describe it.

One day, the Lord willing, we will have more children. And one day they will get older and might not just come plop themselves on my lap, but they will always (at some point) fall asleep and I will be able to look at them and pray for them and wonder what their future holds and bask in the glory of what there past has been.

  1. Sarah,
    Good for you. I am so glad to see you writing it all down. Those memories a precious even beyond words but these days will be gone before you know what happened. Even when my grown children are home I sometimes watch them sleep and remember. Thanks for sharing.
