16 Months In Waiting

This early afternoon when I woke up from my night shift the first thing that my husband excitedly said to me was, 'today Ben did something that we have been waiting 16 months for!!' I am racking my post night shift brain thinking what it could be. What the heck is it?

It was this.

My boy crawled into the dogs bed and started watching out the apartment window. With the Olympics almost here there is a lot of action going on outside. Within 10 minutes he fell fast asleep.

Seriously cute and yes...we have been waiting for our child to do something like this. Love it!

That is one of the cutest pictures I've seen! He is such a little boy now and I can't believe he fell asleep watching out the window!

I am full of envy, if only my daughter would fall asleep doing something like this. She usually needs everything in perfect order and total quiet and a big routine before she thinks it might be okay to go to sleep. So envious!!! I do find this picture mega cute and full of sweetness. You must of loved getting this news.

That is seriously cute! Yay Ben! Looks like he can sleep anywhere now. Even on the window sill. How long did he sleep like that?

So funny! I was thinking he might pass out in that thing the other night when I was over and he was so tired and kept laying down in it. Oh Benny, you make me smile.

How old is your daughter Monica? Ben seriously was a really touchy sleeper until two months ago. Then >boom< something happened.

Alex said that he thinks it was 10 minutes and then he put him into his crib where he kept on sleeping. I was always so jealous seeing pictures or hearing stories of little kids sleeping in their high chair or falling asleep while playing with toys.

that is super cute andrea and alex, ben is so adorable. we waited and waited for jack to fall asleep in a funny go, not even once in the highchair. good thing for 2nd babies; eric fell asleep after jumping his heart out in his cousin's jumperoo. it was the greatest day that day. (the things we find satisfying as parents eh? =) )

Yes! It feels like a parenting milestone for sure! It is also a moment that must be photographed!
