when {angels} sleep

by Tina on April 30, 2012

in family, photography

He has the energy of a thousand bolts of lightning and he runs like the wind, literally.  This child has no concept of doing anything without every shred of passion he can find in his little body. Most days he hardly sleeps.  We have to guard his room to get him to stay in his bed and even then, he jumps about and laughs when we tell him to lay down and close his eyes.  There has been a great deal of conversation in our home regarding his ability to live so hard and yet sleep so little.  How does he do it?  But every now and then, even he needs a moment of rest, and you better believe that when it happens… we get the camera out!

* This was, quite literally, a once in a million shot!  I hope your weekend was equally restful?

What a cute pic! My Evan is just like that! Very intense and he never stops for more than 5 seconds! Happy Week!

Oh I love this! My daughter Maren was the same way . Didn’t sleep through the night until right before her second birthday – at which time, she promptly gave up her only nap. Ugh! I totally understand grabbing the camera – if my girl did that, I would too! xoxo

At first I found his energy to be a bit overwhelming, but now I cherish it so much! I think a child with energy has so much to offer this world!

Reminds me when House Hunters International was filming at the house and found him sleeping on the floor just outside the camera shot. Maybe that’ll make the episode?

So precious! I hope they will re-air your show a few times. It isn’t available to watch over here in Europe is it? I wish they would air their shows on the internet.
