Little Miss Momma: Fleeting Moments

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Fleeting Moments

Nap time.

It's fleeting around these parts.
Every day it becomes a bit less consistent,
and I realize it's only a matter of time before it stops all together.

Like clock work, half way through his nap,
Baby W wakes up crying and looking around the room for his Momma.
He spots me, whines until I curl up next to him,
and then closes his eyes, usually puts his arm or leg over me
and drifts back to sleep. 

He always makes sure some part of our bodies are touching
that way I can't sneak away without him noticing.
And yesterday, he wanted to be REALLY sure
I didn't escape our mid-nap cuddle session.


So he threw his entire body on me
and fell fast asleep.


 You're not going anywhere Momma.

I love this boy and his sweaty bed head.

Gorgeous. Nap time never happens in my house anymore. My son is like that if he is in my bed at night.

So sweet. Cherish the moments. My oldest son was like that with naps, too. And to this day, my daughter is a body magnet when I sleep with her!

Too funny! I cried when my oldest quick nap time. (serious tears for like a week and praying that it was a fluke).
Hopefully you had a show on bc I'm sure reading that one page of Sesame Street got old! lol

So so sweet. My youngest had to always be touching me.. and when she was a baby babe she had to hold the front of my neck..love all of the pictures.

This is precious! My little one is almost 2, and I am going to miss the snuggly days when they are over.

Absolutely precious ... although probably not comfy for you. ;) SERIOUSLY, the things we do for our little ones!

i LOVE snugglin' with my babes.... i usually go up and get my daughter around 5am and bring her to my bed just to snuggle.. hear her breathe... its just such a perfect moment to be close... b/c you're right- its not gonna last forever. My almost 4yr old son can't sit still long enough for me to hold him close like that anymore. glad we had those moments when we did.

Oh my heavens! That is one adorable boy you have there! What a sweetheart! Thanks for the wonderful post.

 
At July 28, 2011 at 7:29 AM , Blogger Linz said...

What a sweetheart! I have 2 little mama's boys myself, and while there are moments I wish I could be by myself without my little barnacles, they grow so fast! I am constantly reminding myself to stop and breathe in these fast-fleeting precious moments!

 
At July 28, 2011 at 7:29 AM , Blogger Nelah said...

Hw cute!!!!! It sucks in a way that mama can't get anything done but moments like that will most likely not happen when they get older.

I used to be upset when my two year old wouldn't let me do anything but I later realize I better embrace every second of it because they grow and become more and more independent everyday. Cherish the moment.

 
At July 28, 2011 at 7:39 AM , Blogger MellyB said...

Haha, I swear our crazy, energy filled little boys should be best friends.

Sometimes for added security Phin likes to death grip my hair. Like sitting on my face isn't enough. There is no escaping so I just hang out and metally fold that pile of laudry I always have. That counts, right?

Stunning perfection! I love the board book by your hand too...what a perfect moment caught on film. I love his spirit!
XOXO

At July 28, 2011 at 8:26 AM , Blogger Lil Mama Stuart said...

lately, my 17 month old girl won't sleep in her crib at night unless I'm laying on the floor next to it. Then I have to crawl my way out so I can get back to cleaning and crafting!

I love how the PEACE pillow is in the shot behind baby W. Says it all!

I LOVE this! I have been there before and enjoy those moments so much. They are good to make us slow down and enjoy such simple things with them.

How adorable! I have a 15 month old and it's amazing how you just can't get enough of them!
I just found your blog and I love it! I'm excited to start following you! :)

So sweet.... I have an 8 year old that still does this on occasion at bed time. However, sometimes instead of calling for me to come to him, he'll just get up, come to my room and crawl in bed with me. Then he'll throw his arm over me, pat me, then fall right to sleep. I know someday soon, I'll miss that.

 
At July 28, 2011 at 9:27 AM , Blogger Sierra said...

my boy does that all the time too! wakes up scared crying and then as soon as i lay down with him, he touches me and he's fine and falls back asleep... Never mind his 3 hour naps at his sitters on days she watches him, what gives? I'm lucky to get an hour!

I have to lay with the boys when they nap to get them to take a longer naps on the weekends. I have had to come to terms with this...I finally just give in and nap with them.

 
At July 28, 2011 at 11:15 AM , Blogger Amy said...

This is the cutest thing I've ever seen! How long did you have to lay there for?! I wish my toddler would snuggle, but I definitely enjoy that she loves her crib!

I just love this. My daughter does the same thing. Usually it's her leg that she throws over me or Justin. She sleeps in our bed with us too. :)

 
At July 28, 2011 at 7:39 PM , Blogger Stephanie said...

I think this just proves how smart your little guy is!! Mine does the arm/leg/some part touching but has yet to lay all the way on top of my back to keep me from escaping! <3 Thanks for sharing these glimpses into your life. It's so sweet to share in.

 
At July 28, 2011 at 8:19 PM , Blogger Chris, Krista and Conor Bolton said...

I love this! My 16-month old is definately a momma's boy and needs me to get back to sleep too. Most of the time, I end up stuck like this too... :) Sometimes I wish that I could just get back to what I was doing before, but then I think about how in no time he will be grown and snuggle time will be gone forever. Love your blog, BTW!

Ugh! This is so sweet!! My 3 tr old boy is 3 hours away with papa & grandma tonight! I miss him

LOVE THIS! I thought I was the ONLY one who had such a hard time with naps...they used to be SO consistent...now I will take a nap WHEREVER I can get it...happened to be the floor the other day..and my lil man does the same thing...wakes up halfway through..wants me with him..and than I sneak away after a few moments......
It sounds obnoxious but secretly I LOVE that he wants to nap w me:)

baby w looks like a ralph lauren model..you both are so tan and cute. i love when my kids want to cuddle/nap together. i tell them they make me the happiest person in the world.

Hahahaha, ahhhh, this is the cutest thing ever!! He definitely made sure that you were staying with him!

Oh my goodness, those are some of the sweetest pictures ever! My youngest still does pretty well with his naps.. but when it comes to waking up in the morning.. oye he likes to climb in bed with us and lay all over me, especially put his head on mine until I wake up!

LOVE baby naps!!!! My favorite part of my day!

 
At July 30, 2011 at 9:59 AM , Blogger Laura said...

I love it! My little W is so similar to yours...they would have so much to talk abo ut! Our naps are getting to be the same...he won't go to bed without mama laying next to him...and he grabs my neck and holds so tight there's no way I can get away! Anytime I even breathe deeply he tightens even, harder!

 
At July 31, 2011 at 9:29 AM , Anonymous Emily faliLV said...

So sweet! He is getting so big now! So I have to know - how long did you end up staying like that?

 
At July 31, 2011 at 3:17 PM , Blogger meg said...

AWW. My little guy is 2 1/2 so I can totally relate to you and your Baby W stories. Mine, however, is my last baby so I savor EVERY momemt like this knowing it will be my last, sniff, sniff. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE these pictures Ashley!! Last night Baby B woke up in his crib crying. I go in and he reaches up for me. I grabbed my favorite blanket of his, wrapped it around him and cuddled him in our rocking chair. Only to feel a warm sensation on my tummy. My little love pee'd all over me and didn't even mind doing it. :) He is only 8 months...so I'll forgive him...this time.

 
At August 2, 2011 at 12:50 PM , Blogger Sally @ A Blessed Existence said...

That's so sweet! My little guy likes to snuggle too. Every time he wants to rock or get in bed with me I cave, because I know that this won't last forever. He won't always want to snuggle with me, especially when he's a sweaty teenager who would rather snuggle with a girlfriend. lol I'll take whatever I can get until then though.

 
At August 3, 2011 at 10:47 PM , Anonymous Gentry said...

LOL! My son is eight and he crawls in my bed almost every morning and sleeps like this! I love it!
