Sleepy Benjamin

Ben was happily having awake time on the floor after lunch today when all of the sudden he began to fuss. I know this fuss very well, it's his "I'm tired, please put me to bed" fuss. However, I was busy in the kitchen and admittedly, didn't really want to stop what I was doing. A few minutes passed and his fussing only became louder. Upon the guilty realization that I was ignoring a sleepy baby, I stopped what I was doing and went into the living room to wrap him up. (The boys will only sleep tightly swaddled) I didn't realize how sleepy he was; however, until I grabbed his blanket and started to fold it in preparation to swaddle him. Well Ben was watching my every move. In fact, he even laughed and started doing his excited kicking when he saw me doing this. I no sooner scooted him onto the blanket and his eyes began to close. As I carried him to bed, he smiled semi-unconsciously the entire way. It was such a sweet moment I couldn't resist sharing it. Happy napping, Benji.
