when a child sleeps


a child awake
is...
boundless energy
endless curiosity
ceaseless motion
seeking more, always more

a child sleeping
is...
soft breathing
peaceful expression
slow heart beating
a dream of angels

    Thanks Jerene! You can't see Dunc's dimples when he sleeps, but he was just so sweet Steve came and got me to see him...he fell asleep 5 minutes into a movie he wanted to see...
    of course I grabbed Big Girl... :D

  3. @Jessica M: I am glad you stopped by too Jessica, and thanks for the feedback...it was a lot easier taking shots of him sleeping than trying to do it when he was 90mph wide open :D
