My Sleeping Babes

Every so often, but not nearly often enough, there are moments in my life when I’m brought to my knees in awe and disbelief that I’ve been given such precious gifts. Tonight was such a moment…

Jon was lying on the couch with Hudson sleeping on his chest, while Devyn and I were sitting together on the other end of the couch. Without a word, Devyn crawled from my lap, across the couch, and lay on the other side of Jon’s chest, facing her baby brother. Softly, slowly, and in rhythmic motion, she started caressing Hudson’s face, his neck, and his hair; all while watching his face adoringly. Within moments, her eyes began to close and she fell asleep while embracing Hudson. Needless to say, I was moved to tears.

The new photo that I’ll treasure the rest of my life.

I'm heading out of town this morning, but I saw your site highlighted on my Bloglines, and I had to come by to tell you that this is the most beautiful, precious picture I've ever seen. You are so blessed, my friend, and it is so good to stop and really look at what is happening around you, and rejoice.
Blessings!
