Is there much sweeter...

...than sleeping babes? Isn't it funny how even their personalities manage to come out while they sleep?

Caleb may try to convince you that he is all "rough and tumble," but many have seen that he is actually a snugly mama's boy. Friday, after a morning of running and playing, he had to collect his precious "bae baes" for nap time. Three of his five stuffed friends can be seen ~ the other two are under the covers.
Three months ago we were still in China with him. Wow, it's only been three months and he has totally captured our hearts! What was life like without him?

And then there is my little no sock wearing, independent girl. No matter how cold she is, she always has to have her feet bare! Daddy put her down for her nap today and I couldn't resist a picture when I walked by, her arms are out in such "Kylie fashion," almost reaching out in a final, "I'm not sleepy!" protest. Two years ago today we were on a flight to Beijing, just four days away from meeting our angel. Where has the time gone, but actually, what was life without her?

Kristi - I cried as I read this because I just captured my very first picture of my sleeping baby about 15 minutes ago.......I can't wait to capture more because the tears just rolled down my face when he fell asleep in my arms.....much love, Melissa

I can't believe how time flies and most how we can't imagine our lives without our little princess.. You are truly blessed with those two. So sweet!

Time flies doesn't it!! I think Kylie doesn't like wearing socks because she is still trying to make up for all the warm clothes they put on her in southern China!! LOL

I love pictures of sleeping kids. Were you standing on Caleb's bed when you took that? It's so precious! I can't believe he's sleeping without a shirt. It almost killed me when Adam started doing that...it's such a grown up thing to do. Andrew tried it a few times, but it didn't stick with him. Thank goodness!

I'm beginning to think that Kylie and Julia are related! Ju hates to wear socks. It's winter! In Michigan! She comes home from school, off come the socks. She's always barefoot!

I know! Can you believe we were on a plane 2 years ago today? I remember meeting you and your family on the plane! Caleb sleeps just like Anne Marie - she has about 6 stuffed animals she MUST go to bed with every night & 3 very specific blankets (and they must be layed on her in order!!) But it's the cutest thing when they are sleeping surrounded by all those little animals!

What precious grandchildren. They have been such blessings to our family. Their energy, laughter, love, enthusiasm, then the quietness of their slumber.
Praise God!
