sunday siesta

kawena is sick today. she has had a cold for a few days now and she is just miserable. i always feel bad when my baby can't breath out of her nose without snot bubbling out. and she just absolutely hates getting her nose wiped! i don't blame her, but what choice do i have?!

so, this morning at church she was so tired, but wouldn't sleep. i knew she would need to go down for her nap as soon as possible once we got home. we fed her as fast as we could so she could rest, but apparently it was not fast enough! i was watching her as she would take a bite and her head would start wobbling and her eyelids would flutter. the poor child was just exhausted! i should have been a good mom and gotten her out to put her into her bed, but it was just so dang cute. so, i called mitch into the kitchen and we both watched as our miserable, sick child dozed off for her sunday siesta at the lunch table.

and no, i did not leave her there. i woke her up and cleaned her off and got her dressed and put her in her comfy little crib with her cozy little blanket, just before i laid myself down and curled up on the comfy couch with a cozy little blanket for my sunday siesta!

don't you just love a sunday afternoon siesta?! just heavenly!

That is so cute. Poor Kawena. It's hard seeing your babies sick. I LOVE Sunday naps too. It's the one day a week I committ to a snooze. Yesterday I slept for two hours and even then it was hard waking up.

sunday naps are the best.
my brother, martin, used to fall asleep in his high chair every night at dinner--face in the food. he wouldn't nap all day, so he crashed and burned at dinner time. soo funny.

Oh, the poor baby! So tired. She really pooped out after our park trip, too! I love the way she is suddenly asleep. One minute those big brown eyes are open and the next she's snoozing away!

Mommy thinks she's funny watching Kawena's head bobble...Poor Kawena...j/k.
Hope she's better. You are an aweseome mom and thank goodness for Sunday siestas.
