Three sleeping beauties.

I miss my kids when they are sleeping. I sneak in their rooms and watch their peaceful faces while they sleep. I want to wake them up so badly just to cuddle with them. Of course I don't, but I really want to.

I can't steal moments with Karl though. He is just like his mommy, he is such a light sleeper. At just the smallest of noise, he sits right up in his bed. And of course he stays awake after being woke. Knowing I can't go in his room makes it all the worse for me. Instead, I stand by his door and open it a crack and I listen to his breathing. Sometimes he has the cutest little snore. I just love it.

Three sleeping beauties. I can't get over how lucky I really am. What did I do in a past life to have such a blessed present?

Caiden's the same way- I want to go in & watch her sleep so bad!!! But I know it only leads to a rough night for everyone. I used to crank the monitor up & listen to her breathing (our creaky doors prevent the opening a crack technique!)

Even now I was happy last night when she woke up- first night in a week- because it meant we could cuddle. I am paying for it today though!

I did the same thing last night! I love just watching them.

Ella will sleep through just about anything and Sam will most of the time. He does wake on occasion and will want a cuddle (yay!) but goes right back to sleep every time.

Unfortunately these moments are getting fewer and fewer and I miss them!

Mine all sleep very soundly. I guess I'm lucky.

Layla is the same way. I would pay for it if I tried to watch her sleeping. Her cute little snores are fun too. I love sleepy kids though, that's the only time they want to stop and cuddle. I've had to fight the temptation to go cuddle my kids at night so many times.

I agree, you are very blessed with your beautiful children. They are amazing and I love to hear about them.

Jeramy bought video monitors just the other day. We didn't have them when Jillian was born because I thought it was overkill. However it is the only kind where you can get two rooms on one monitor so we went for it.

Last night after putting Jillian down we got to watch her get comfortable and fall asleep. It was one of the funnest things ever!

I love watching my boys sleep too. Thankfully they are not light sleepers which makes spying much easier! I have lots of pictures of them sleeping too. I am obsessed!
