Never Wake a Sleeping Baby

The other morning, I was having one of those spend way too much time on the computer mornings (the reason I got rid of facebook...but then there's always the blog to tend to), so I turned on PBS Kids for Caleb and Sarah, filled up their sippy cups, and asked them to sit quietly and watch Super Why. Or was it Sesame Street? I don't remember.

But then there's always Gabriel. He's a little harder to try and convince that mommy needs computer time. He seemed hungry, and lately I've been giving him one bottle in the morning and one at night (sometimes) in an effort to (sort of) wean him over the next two months or so. So that's what I did. I got the bottle ready and then placed him on the floor in front of PBS so he could have time with his siblings. He's quite good at holding the bottle, even though he's a nursed baby and this is relatively new.

I came to check on my blog, and I'd say only 2 or 3 minutes passed when Caleb quietly walked into my room and whispered, "Mommy! Gabriel is asleep!" I thought he must be joking. Gabriel doesn't normally fall asleep out there with the other two.

But I had to see this.

So I walked into the living room to find my sweet little 9-month-old looking like this...

The picture may be cute, but I'm not even sure if it captures the moment. I really couldn't believe he just fell asleep like that!

I'm pretty sure this is not something that would happen on a regular basis. Sure glad I got the picture to share with others!
