peace and quiet {see it snap it love it}

Is there anything quite as peaceful to see as a sleeping baby?
The beautiful boy always seems to sleep so peacefully.
Each night he falls into the exhausted sleep that only children can have,
with no worries or concerns,
just sweet dreams and deep breathing.
There is just something so completely precious
about those pouty sleep lips,
about his eyes pressed closed,
about the way he has fallen asleep with his giraffe Geoffrey
as if the pair of them were deep in conversation
until the exact moment that sleep decided to come.

And as his mummy
I find nothing more peaceful and comforting that watching him sleep.
It is my own bedtime comforter,
to go and see him
last thing before I go off to bed myself.
To see him sleeping
and dreaming
and looking a little more like my baby
and a little less like the little boy he is fast becoming,
even if only for a moment.
Seeing him looking so perfectly peaceful and quiet
gives me the peace and quiet to go to sleep myself.

Last weeks 'Messy' pictures made me smile,
so lovely to see so many lovely messy children.
The Photo of the Week was this one:

from Happy Jax,
mainly because I love that she grabbed the camera when she saw this scene of devastation
instead of panicking about cleaning it up straight away.
She can show off the winners badge if she wants to.
