Eyes wide shut

Over the last week I have been snuggling up in bed with my sleepy little man, who has had his usual routine turned completely on it's head. The only way my beautiful boy would lay down his head and get some sleep was to be tucked up in my arms.

This is been such a beautiful time and I have been watching him take in every single breath, and listening to every little sigh he makes.

Smiling at him as he sleeps so soundly.

I love watching the little dream faces he makes as they flicker like a silent movie over his perfect face, letting me have a little peak into those innocent dreams he weaves. His eyes flicker as he dreams up tomorrow's adventures and he lays so still, content in my arms.

I can lie there and watch him sleep for hours on end, completely in awe of everything my beautiful little man has become. I cannot help reminiscing to last year when Leo was my little newborn bundle. I would sit and watch him for hours then too, afraid to put him down in case I missed a windy smile dart across his lips like a shooting star, giving Daddy and I a insight to all the smiles that were to come, on the not so distant horizon.

As I lay there watching every breath he takes, he lets out a chuckle from the land of nodd. A heart felt giggle that rings out through the darkened room. A beautiful sound that catches me completely off guard but makes that single moment in time perfect.

The dreams he dreams are a mystery to me and I suppose they always will be, but from watching him sleep so soundly and hearing the laughter that he could not contain until morning. I know that he dreams happy dreams, magical dreams. 

Now we are back home from our week away and these moments have to be the highlight of my week.

My beautiful sleeping baby boy, sleeping so soundly in my embrace, and laughing his angelic laugh just for me, like a whisper in my ear.
