An overnight guest

We kept little Jaylon overnight last night so the kids could get plenty of rest and sleep. He spent the evening hours with Mawmaw and Pawpaw Dunnells. Then they brought him here at about 9:30.

He was wound for sound! :-) So it was going for eleven o'clock and he was kind of vegged out on my lap. He turned around and just stared into my eyes with this kind of glazed look. His eyes were as big as saucers in an effort to stay awake. I couldn't take it! I just started laughing. Then Jaylon started laughing. It was so funny....him trying to stay awake! When he gets tired and sleepy, he gets ticklish all over and kind of punchy. It is so funny!

After we snuggled and all for a bit more, I laid him down in his bed, turned off the lights and went to bed. I left a nightlight on for Jaylon.

He woke up at about 1:30am for a little bit, went back to sleep and slept until eight o'clock this morning, took a bottle and slept until nine o'clock.

I got up at six, made coffee, fed and watered Ellie, then went back to bed. I didn't hear Ed leave and didn't wake up until Jaylon did at eight. I can't tell you the last time I slept until eight o'clock! :-)


This is a picture of Jaylon the first time he figured out how to pull himself up to the dining table chair. :-)

Babies are so cute when they are asleep.
Eva is pulling herself up on anything that doesn't move, and a few thing that do. Fall down go boom.

Yes..LOL...that seems to be the prodecure at our house most days now, too, Sir! :-)

Jaylon looks so much like you and Daniel! He's got the most precious smile, and you can see he's very pleased with himself for pulling up on the chair!

Hi Theresa! It's those chubby cheeks, hm? LOL
