Have You Ever Been This Tired?

Have you ever been SO tired you just wanted to fall over right then and there?

Well I believe that all three of my kids are experts at it. They could go to sleep anywhere anytime. (And I have the pictures to prove it). Forget the noise or anything else that was going on, they just stop and sleep. Except Colt did have this thing about not letting me sleep at night, but that’s another story.

Most of these pictures today are of Luke, but it’s only because I had all these pictures on my computer and the photos of Colt and Joy are in albums (that require scanning and my scanner isn’t working right now). But suffice it to say that I have pics of them standing up sleeping as well.

I also have the cutest video of Colt eating a lollipop and falling asleep (when he was a little under two). In his sleep, he remembers he must have been eating something and his tongue is constantly searching for his lollipop. I should have entered it in America’s Funniest Videos, because it is hilarious……and precious to me!

Luke goes and goes until he can’t go anymore. Then he just stops to sleep.

He hasn’t taken a planned nap in a few months now. That’s mostly because I just don’t enforce it anymore. He really just seemed to be requiring naps less and less during the day. I remember when Joy hit four years old, she was done with naps too (although she was my best sleeper at night..going to bed the same time and getting up the same time).  She slept all night the first night home from the hospital and unless she was sick, she always had that routine.   Colt took naps until he was older I believe, but it was probably because I laid down with him and took one too!  :)

However, when evening gets here, Luke just goes to sleep anywhere he wants if he doesn’t make it to the bed first, and in any position, I might add.

Usually he gets somewhere near one of us, whether that’s on the chair or couch......

 Or in this case, under the dining room table.

However, Luke can’t resist a nap in the car. Driving puts him to sleep usually while he’s absorbed in all the 18-wheelers on the interstate. Actually the drive from our house to town is just long enough to put all our kids out for a nap. There were many days after church (especially when Colt was little) that we’d pull up at the house and he was napping, so we would recline our seats and finish up a little nap because if we turned off the car, his eyes popped open. We grabbed our sleep whenever we could with that boy!

Luke sleeps like a rock all night long. Now mind you, arms and legs are all over the place owning the bed, but he sleeps well and all night long!

So……are you sleepy yet? :)

Oh my Tammy! He is absolutely adorable! I am amazed at all the places he could fall asleep! The tiled floor shocked me the most! Silly little guy! This gave me a great smile and warmed my heart! :)

I wanted to let you know, when I came on to your site, my computer security popped up and had to block a malicious URL from your site. I think it was a counter or something like that. :)

Have a wonderful Monday!
