Sweet Angel....

Sleeping has become a nightmare at our house in the last few weeks....especially nap time. Most days I'd rather poke my eyes out then deal with getting the kids to sleep. Isabelle is the one that thinks she's ready to give naps up all together (I'm fighting her tooth and nail...but I think she's winning) So in a last ditch effort to stay on top...all the kids nap in different rooms now. This works great because *usually* Grace will always sleep....Samuel is hit or miss and then Isabelle's like 1 out 7. Usually I put Sam or Grace in our bed but last week I put Isabelle there. I was sitting at the computer working and I look over and see this adorable face looking back at me....she melted me right there on the spot!! It just so happened I had my camera handy (I know hard to believe) This is just a sampling of our Silly Belle....she successfully avoided her nap that day...but I could careless...because I have these to cherish!!! Blessings, Jen

Beautiful little Sweet Angel!

I haven't lost the battle of the naps yet. They turned three in October .. and we still nap good.

I resorted to moving a nice comfy recliner in their room and I have to sit there until they go to sleep (which I hate), but I NEED them to nap still. Plus, Mommy gets a little nappy too.
