A 24 minute nap on my lap in the playroom. How quickly the late afternoon sun danced across his face, how he fell asleep, how he signed in his sleep, how he awoke and looked up at me and I reassured him, "Mama's here", how he yawned and rubbed his eyes from slumber and of my hair which had fallen on his eyes, tickling them, and how his hands began to play again in sign.


In the midst of everything that hurts us all at present, it was a most beautiful and tender time that we shared today, the opportunity for which I am so very blessed and grateful.

Beautiful boy! You always capture him so well, his little personality and sweet nature coming through in these photos, even in sleep!

Lovely!
