My little guy has never been much of a sleeper. He didn't sleep through the night until he was two. Here's one of my favorite photo sessions from when he was about seven months old. He was supposed to be taking a nap, but would not go to sleep. He was so cute, I had to take pictures.
Now, he's almost four and still fights sleep every night. It's not a mean fight, it's pretty entertaining most nights actually.Last night, as most nights, he got really chatty when I turned the lights out. Here's just some of our conversation
"Mommie, I like valentines, they are so pretty."
"Me too sweetie, now go to sleep."
"Mommie, I like you hair. It's so soft."
Then he says the thing every mommie wants to hear...
"Mommie, you're the bestest mommie ever, you know?"
How does a three (almost four) year old come up with that?
All to fight sleep.
