Thursday Thirteen #6 Sleeping

This is the second of my series of Thursday Thirteens surrounding everyday activities. My first was Reading. This week's installment: Sleeping. I know I have shared a few of these before but it is still fun to put them into a montage.

Newborn Noah sleeps (2002)

















Sleepy Newborn Aaron (2004)















Cousin Olivia (2 days old) and Baby Noah (10 weeks) meet for the first time and fall asleep



















Cousin Jamie and Baby Aaron tuckered out on Grandpa's boat.















I think this is the first brother picture we have of two year old Noah holding Sleeping Aaron on New Year's Day 2005. Look at that smile!














Aaron sleeping with Daddy














Aaron sleeping with Mommy (wrapped in a Woobie, of course)















Noah at 3 years old after long day of vacationing in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. I loved the grip on the tube, even in his sleep.














After a quick walk around the block, Steve turned around one night and found Aaron sound asleep in the wagon.














Sometimes they're too tired to even wait until they get all the way on their bed



















Super tired boys after a week in St. Louis



















Even at five years old (six next week), they STILL look cute when they asleep. Look at Noah snuggle his "buddy"















Once in awhile, it's even fun to pretend to go to sleep if it means you can drag all of the bedding from both bedrooms into the living room for the sake of fun.















Happy snoozing tonight.

Good sleep is wonderful! And the good thing about baby/child sleep is that mommy gets a little break, too!

Those are cute pictures, but I don't think this was the post for me to read today because I am SOOOO tired and now, nothing's changed.
