So Sweet

I remember the first few nights we had Jansen home from the hospital...all night I wondered if he was still breathing and I just kept checking on him. I obviously don't worry like that anymore, but I do still go in his room every night before I go to sleep just look at him. I love it. Nate came home from a particularly long, frustrating day at work yesterday and after being upstairs for a few minutes came back down and apologized because he thought he woke Jansen up. We could hear Jansen babbling through the monitor...some nights he takes a long time to fall asleep. (He's happy in there, mom, I promise!) It seems like he is learning so many new words and word combinations and he likes to practice them in bed at night. Anyway, Nate told me he had opened Jansen's door because he just wanted to look at him...he said it makes him feel better (after a long day). I thought that was so cute and I totally agree with him. When I watch Jansen sleeping he looks so sweet and peaceful...it reminds me to be patient with him throughout the next day. One of my favorite parts of the day is going to get him in the morning because he usually sits up in his crib and says, "Mama! Mama back!" I'm so lucky to have him.

I agree. One of the simplest, yet best joys is to peek in at your children while they sleep. Love the arm through the crib!

They are such little angels when they are sleeping. It is so true about how looking at your babies sleeping makes you resolve to be more patient the next day. Even when you set the sprinkler in the living room, I remember looking in on you later and thinking......there is no way that little angel would ever do anything wrong. Of course Jansen would never do such a thing anyway. Love you guys, mom
