Bedtime Rituals

Every night, after dinner, Sawyer gets a bath. He really enjoys being in the tub.

Recently, we've been playing with the toy animals and making their sounds while we're in the bath. He loves the duck and cow sounds! Perhaps, this is also because mama makes these sounds better than the others!

After bath time it's stories and prayers. This night dadda was taking his turn to read. This is one of the few moments during the day when Sawyer is still.

I look forward to bedtime, not just because Sawyer's a great sleeper (He's asleep by 7:00 pm every night and doesn't wake up until 6:30 am and sometimes later on the weekend...gotta love that!!), but because we embrace him in our love every night before he drifts to sleep.

“Of course if you like your kids, if you love them from the moment they begin, you yourself begin all over again, in them, with them, and so there is something more to the world again."
