Lately life has been anything but calm - Eli has turned into a holy little terror. It's hard to believe, I know. He's keeping me busy during his every waking moment, trying to crawl, buzzing around in his walker pulling things down and crashing into his big brother. I think he's set some kind of family record with how active he's become at only 7 months.
But then there are those calm moments... nap times especially. I've been trying to take the time to read to my boys every afternoon. Josiah usually falls asleep, Eli usually wakes up as soon as Josiah falls asleep! We're working on it it... those moments are some of my favorite.
My plan for this challenge was to photograph Eli napping but he woke up as soon as I got my camera out and didn't go back down until I'd lost my light. So here is one I took of Josiah... I just adore these sweet moments with my sleeping boy. It reminds me how quickly these years are going by and how dearly I treasure these little lives.
I am going to add this photo as well since it's one of my favorites this month... another sweet moment having a snack - when I didn't have to constantly remind my little man to calm down :)
