Sweet Dreams and Babies Who Won't Sleep

I may have mentioned a time or twenty-five that Jayci doesn't like to miss out on the party. From the time she was little, four months old to be exact, she refused to sleep and fought it like a cage-fighter. As a result, I have NEVER ventured to take a picture of her sleeping. Because when she does finally fall sleep, I am not likely to risk waking her back up. Heck to the no.

So when people started asking where my I Heart Faces entry was this week, I thought: well my baby doesn't sleep so I got nothing. But then, aha! I remembered that I had taken some pictures of my friend's baby who, luckily, DOES sleep. Just like a little angel.
Visit I Heart Faces to see all the sleeping angels this week. Some of my favorite entries that I've seen so far have been of little ones dreaming under the Christmas tree. I have big plans to get one of Jayci like that. Yeah right, like that'll ever happen. It's all I can do to get her not to pull it over. Our tree now only has ornaments on the top half. It's lovely I tell you, truly lovely.

  7. Just wait until Jayci is miserably ill and then position her sickly self under the tree just like Mark and I did with Jordyn. :) I know what you mean about your baby not sleeping. That's exactly how my oldest was. My middle child, though, was a dream! He loves his sleep. In other words, you'll have to have a second baby so you can get those sleepy photos. :) I love the photo that you did get. Doesn't it make you jealous to have friends with such cooperative babies? Ha!

  8. Love her little lips! So cute! Emily is a pretty good sleeper now, but when she was a baby, once she got to sleep and you happened to breathe outside her door, she would hear you! Whew! Now, she somehow always ends up in our bed and I can roll her over like a log and she doesn't budge! Sweet dreams! ;)

  9. Love your story! And the picture is adorable, too! I completely understand sleeplessness (if that's even a word).

  10. I have to say, your friends baby is a pretty little angel.
    I have the same problem with Audrey...When she naps it is in her crib, door closed, music on and complete darkness so I never get the cute sleepy pictures of her like I did with Grant. He would, and still does, takes a nap whenever and wherever he sees fit!
    Glad to see you decided to enter. Great job!

  11. Get out of here! I can't imagine having a baby that didn't sleep. I would die. Kaish was the best sleeper on the planet.

    Your friends baby is so cute. What a sweet picture. It made me smile!

  13. Great entry! Sleeping babies are so valuable to a tired mom. I love when my kids are sleeping. It is all worth it then.

  14. Beautiful! But I'm with you. If my kids were asleep and a click of the camera woke them up, I would be very, very, very frustrated. :)

    Kevin totally deserved to win and I'm still a little peeved this morning. Michael didn't win as much throughout the season as the other two and Kevin just looked like Santa.

  18. For babies to have a sound sleep, they must have a consistent bed time routine. Lay down the baby on the same bed even for naps, make the room dark and play some music. This way it will keep the baby from crying too.
