Sleep Laughing

Some time ago, I posted on Aaron and his night terrors. Last night, we saw the opposite. Richard and I were watching Aaron and laughing (quietly) at sleep posture. He still tucks his hands and legs in and sticks his backside in the air the same way he did when he was a few weeks old.

So, while we were laughing, he must have heard us because he lifted his head, opened his eyes and looked at me.

"Oh No! Now I'll have to deal with his crying and have to put him to sleep again"

No, that didn't happened, he actually started laughing. Then he put his head down again and kept chuckling and finally, just had the sweetest smile on his face as he closed his eyes. There were a few more chuckles before he was completely quiet again. It was the strangest thing. Just like the night terrors, I don't think he was really awake even though his eyes were opened.

I wouldn't mind a few more of these cute episodes!

This is such an adorable picture and story! Alexis does this same thing sometimes when I kiss her good night and she is already asleep - she'll giggle and smile - I just love it. Have a good day, Amanda. See you later. Kellan

Great story! Our daughter is going through the agony of trying to get Leya onto a decent sleep schedule, with mixed success. She says that if anyone is on a modified sleep schedule, it's her - she's learned to get by on sleep in two-hour chunks.
