Do You Ever...

go in your child's bedroom at night
when they are fast asleep
and watch
and listen
and brush you fingers on their cheek
and smell their hair
I do
I just did

A love that amazes me
When she is sleeping she looks to me just like she did the day I brought her home

I am so thankful and so in love....
Pin It!

Oh! I love that time! It is just the thing that heaven must be filled with...sleeping angels with soft baby skin! I always get my camera...there are tons of pictures of Allikaye sleeping - I never get enough of them! :0)

ALL THE TIME!! My oldest is almost nine and I still sneak in to smell her and kiss her while she sleeps. It is the best part of the day.

Love your blog!

So well said!
I don't know how many times I check to make sure she's got her blanket, her head isn't in a strange position, there's no Dora doll stuck under her back...! Its all an excuse though -- to just go in and look at her for a while -- and remember how lucky I am. :)
