Sweet Dreams

Patrick insisted on wearing this costume  to bed.  He is still my baby for one more month.  I am treasuring the time spent with him as the baby of the family.  He's my ever present buddy, and just the sweetest most obedient little boy ever.

  2. Look at that sweet little face! So glad you are soaking him in. You are such a wonderful mom, and such an example and inspiration to me. Thank you!

  3. That has got to be one of the sweetest pictures Sarah! One I would frame. :) What a doll. Makes me excited for the next few years with Kole. We are finally starting to really read stories together instead of him just wanting to chuck the books across the room. :)

    Enjoy your weekend!

  4. So precious. Loved this post. I wish we would have been more relaxed about allowing kids to sleep in our room. Now they are gone and of course don't sleep with us. :)

  5. As excited and happy as I always have been for new babies to come, I am always so sad for the "baby" to no longer be the baby. Once that newborn comes through the door, those little ones become "big". Lucky Patrick to have held that spot for so long. He will be a wonderful big brother, I am sure.

  6. Nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby, and he is gorgeous as well. What sweet night time rituals you have with him, I'll bet it is one of his favorite times of the day.

  7. So sweet. I'm expecting around the same time as you and we just moved our baby to her big bedroom from her "little bed" next to me. She was so excited, but sad....I was too.

  8. So I finally finished watching season 2 of Downton Abbey. And can I just say that your blog makes me feel just like that show. All warm and fuzzy inside. You are the modern day downton, minus the uptightness, but all the same lovliness.

  9. At first glance I thought the sword was a rail on a hospital bed and his gloves were a cast or something. I thought you were having some hospital adventure right when you didn't need it! I'm glad it didn't turn out to be that!

  10. awwww, so sweet! Our youngest had a mattress in our room for years! She is 10 now and it is out and I have some open space. She still sleeps with us when she is sad and of course when Daddy is out of town.

  13. Ha! When my kids were younger and I was tired, I used to use the slow, monotone trick while reading to bore my kids to sleep at night, so I could get to bed that much sooner.

  14. I love this. When I put my son to bed every night he isists we name everyone that he saw in his class at school during the day. It has become our little ritual and has helped me learn all of the kid's names:)

  15. Oh Sarah I am so glad your little 4 year old is sweet and obedient. He could teach my Maggie a thing or two!

  16. Oh, he is so sweet, Sarah! I am always amazed at how my previous baby looks like a giant when I have brought my newborn home. Enjoy every minute before he has to be the big brother....

  17. He looks so big! Your brave...I couldn't wait that long when #5 came in December. I was so afraid that he would freak out leaving my bed I had to try to switch him a month earlier and he was totally fine. What I was UNprepared for was his reaction to seeing me in the hospital. So different from his older brother who was exactly the same age as him and he was just so excited about the baby. I think because Connor (#4) was the baby for so long and had such a different relationship with me than the rest..he was just freaked out. He started crying as soon as he saw me. He still comes to visit "his" bed in our room but it was good for him to is have his own space... SAD :( (I still miss him every night and waking up to that sweet face every morning!)

    P.S. I started reading your blog when Patrick was somewhere around 6 months old...(My #4 was the same age) and I swore then to start blogging regularly...and now here I am and my #5 is the same age and I still don't make the time like you do. You are amazing and STILL my inspiration. Maybe I will make this my ultimate summer bucket wish!

  18. I absolutely love pictures of my kids when the sleep. I think I could take one every night! So peaceful and precious.
