Sneak Peek

Every night after Owen goes to bed I sneak into his room several times to peek at him. It's not because I'm afraid he isn't breathing or because I want to make sure he's warm enough. I look at him because I love him so much and I just can't get enough of him. He always looks so sweet when he's sleeping and oftentimes I end up laughing at him due to his awkward sleeping positions. Here are a few of those positions caught on camera: He regularly sleeps with his body twisted like this.
I took this one just because I couldn't believe how sweaty he was.
Totally wiped out
Not quite sure how he accomplished this in his sleep

Hanging on for the ride
Owen hardly ever sleeps on his back. But he LOVES to have his head up against his bumper.
I can't imagine this is very comfortable, but this is not an uncommon way for him to sleep.
Apparently he no longer fits in the crib sideways.

What a sweetie! Yep, my kids like to have their heads against something, too. It must be common. Love that little foot sticking out in the last picture. :)

Cynthia likes to sleep with her head against the bumpers too. I'm like you, sneak in and watch her sleep at night! Sometimes I even pick her up and have a few cuddles before going to bed. That is mostly because she is NOT a cuddly child so this is the only time I get some! :)

Thanks for the pics Kelly! Are you gonna let him sleep in his favorite uncle's (LOL) room at Christmas?

So cute! I'm a sneak peaker too! Although, our old house has creaky floors, so I have to be careful since Eli can be a light sleeper at times!! It's hard to imagine how some of those positions we find our kiddos in are comfortable, but I guess when you're that tired, you don't care!!!

Very funny pictures! I love watching sleeping kids. I know this is weird (but you would understand this one), I actually smell my baby every night before I go to bed. I have only done this with the kids when they were babies, but I love that baby smell and it only lasts such a short time.

Those are really sweet pictures. I too am a peeker. I love how they sleep in funny positions. Evan has to have his head on the bumper too. Must make them feel cozy.

Very cute! They always look so big in their cribs, don't they? I'm always amazed when I look in at Evan and Molly at night how big they look. It doesn't seem like it was very long ago when they slept sideways in the crib and had inches to spare at their head and at their feet!
