I love the moment when your eyes finally flutter for the last time of the day... You sink into a deep sleep, and thankfully, since you were about 5 months you have been an excellent sleeper. You like, and have always liked, to go to sleep on your own. You have two special blankets you like to sleep with, and your stomach is your favorite position.
This is you in the hospital. I think it was taken just a little while after you were born, but I'm not sure since I was pretty much knocked out. I wish I could have that time back of your first moments, but I guess I can keep wishing. Your Daddy took excellent care of you while I was in-and-out due to pain medicine. You slept so much when we first bought you home.
I've got that syndrome where I think my kid is the sweetest, best looking, smartest kid in the whole wide world! And look at this picture... is it not the sweetest?
Ahh, the sleep that comes in a moving vehicle. I absolutely love watching you fall asleep through the rear-view mirror. I promise I watch the road too, but glimpsing you dozing off in your car seat makes me smile.
Sweet dreams, Riley.
I love you,
