What a face to wake up to!
Even if it is 1:30 in the a.m.
We got home and into bed late last night. Having been at a friend's house, all the boys crashed there for a bit (except for Sam, who stayed awake the whole time). The babies were wide awake all the way home, but I knew they'd have no issues getting back to sleep once they were in their cribs. We got in around 12:30, and I hurried to put both babies in their cribs and then go to find blankets for the beds of the 3 older boys - because of course, that was the day I had chosen for washing every piece of their bedding. Everyone was settled and asleep by 12:45. Ahhh...bed!
I sleep with the baby monitor on by my nightstand, which isn't really all that necessary anymore, but if one starts to fuss, which is rare, I want to get in there before they disturb their brother. I was awakened slowly around 1:30 and realized that I'd been hearing noise for quite awhile, seeping into my subconscious as my mind waited for the rest of me to wake up. Eventually I realized that the noises were coming from the monitor, and they kind of sounded like fussing, but not quite. I actually sat up in bed and exclaimed about it to Brian, who didn't hear me due to the fact that he was still very sound asleep.
So I went into the nursery, feeling like I was in a dream. It was very surreal. There were both stinkers, standing up in their cribs, Josiah with a dazed look on his face, and Isaac just giggling and giggling. Uncontrollably. At nothing, apparently.
I said something like, "What in the world are you doing awake??!!"
I went and laid Isaac down first, then went to tuck in Josiah, and all the while, Isaac just giggled and giggled. I'm talking loud, full-force giggling!
I had apparently forgotten to turn the lights off when I left their room at 12:30! And just like little birds, they refused to settle down in the brightness.
I have a little boy who gets happier and happier the more tired he becomes!
