Catching Some Zzz's

This weekend was a MaMa and boys weekend. On Saturday we went to Auntie Ashley's soccer game and the boys had a blast! They were screaming "ball" at every turn and running full speed ahead into the middle of the games with no inkling that they were interrupting. I think we may sign Austin up in the fall. In any case, they wore themselves out! Remember that my boys are not car sleepers. It takes a lot for them to fall asleep in the car and then when they do, they most certainly will not nap once we get home. It doesn't matter if it was 20 minutes or 2 seconds, the power nap is enough to keep them running for hours, much to my dismay. (we won't go into my opening the windows to blast air in their faces or singing very loudly to keep them up stints, remember I am pregnant and will go to great lengths for a nap with the boys) However, yesterday all of the running around and excitement put Austin over the edge and no matter how loudly I sang or how much air blasted his ever so precious face his eyes rolled back and his head began to bob. He was OUT! So, I let him sleep. It only wound up being 5 minutes or so but the very funniest part was that when we got home I got him out of his car seat and he STAYED asleep. You must understand just how much this um...NEVER happens. I knew he needed a diaper change and thought for sure that would do the trick of undoing the exhaustion and refueling him until the sun went down. Instead, this is how it all went down.

On the changing table with pants on ready to be changed and STILL asleep!

Pants are now off. Still sleeping. (p.s. what happened to the tiny baby that was swallowed up by this changing table?)

Diaper is off. Still sleeping. Is this for real?

Clean diaper is on and he was still sound asleep. It just goes to show you, ya just never know! I proceeded to lay him in bed and he slept for an hour and a half. Yay, Austin!

Then there are days like today where he didn't sleep a gal darn wink...
When we are young we fight the naps and sleep tooth and nail and when we are old (like me=) you would give your right arm for half an hour!
