Wordful Wednesday: An Unusual Sight

I'm rarely ever able to photograph this in our house:
SoJo is the incarnate of Superman, in the category of super-human hearing abilities. If one were to so much as creak the floor via tiptoes outside of his bedroom door, he would spring awake. To top it off, we live in an old house where the doors stick and the house is eternally settling. I spent last weekend oiling the hinges (even on the medicine cabinet) to avoid waking (they needed it anyway).

Yesterday evening, I snuck in during the tail end of his nap to take some photos, since I didn't want him sleeping too late. He didn't stir immediately, which was long enough to take a photo of his sweet slumbering. It didn't last long though, and he sensed that someone was watching him.

  3. Hee hee! What a sweet picture of your little man :) I love snapping pictures of her sleeping.

    Though, from the beginning I did laundry and ran the dishwasher {sometimes even vacuumed} while she slept. Mainly because that was the only time I had to do it! LOL So she sleeps fairly well through noise. Phew!

    I have to say again how cute he is sleeping.

  6. He looks so precious!!

    Rose is a light sleeper too. I swear, if a bird flies by her window and farts, she's awake for the rest of the day! It's frustrating, and I feel your pain!

  11. I tried to make lots of noise while my kids were sleeping and well - I have 2 kids who wake up if I flush the toilet. I think they'd even wake up if my neighbors flushed their toilet. Luckily they are never home. Whew.
