Anywhere, Though Sadly, Not Anytime

I've been meaning to put this post together for a LONG time! This post is all Jonah (though if you manage to make it to the end of the post you'll be rewarded with the sweetest video of Rowan and Liam). More specifically, it's all about the places we find Jonah sleeping! 

Sleep is very elusive in our house right now. The only one who is really getting any quality sleep around here is Liam. He sleeps through everything! Jonah and Rowan are another story. Rowan is now 5 months old and has already had three colds in his short little life as well as a new tooth, robbing him of quality sleep and consequently robbing us of quality sleep. Jonah has been potty training, making night time really fun, and he also wakes up randomly throughout the night and can't get back to sleep. But enough whining, back to the story. 

Every night before we go to bed we go in and check on the boys, cover them up, pick up their books, smooch them all over. But the best part of the whole thing is Jonah. Where or how we will find Jonah sleeping! We have taken several pictures for the purposes of documentation, but believe me there could have been so many more :) And in all of these pictures he was sound asleep, completely dead to the world!
These first few are in the toddler bed in the old room.
That's Jonah's elephant (or elmetant), who is frequently part of the show.

Legs wrapped up like a mermaid

Elmetant again.

This was transitioning to the new room right before he got his big boy bed.

Now we're in the big boy bed with the toddler rails.
This one is my personal favorite. We had a babysitter that night and after she left I went in to check on the boys. Now, imagine, there was no light on in the room when I went in there. I couldn't find Jonah anywhere! I looked in the bed, he wasn't there. I looked in the closet, under the bed, in Liam's bed, everywhere. I thought the babysitter kidnapped him! Not really. Then I looked closer and realized he was stuffed in the 6 inch space between the rail and the wall, face flattened against the mesh! So, like any good parent, I left him there until Edwin got home so that he could see too :)

Here is another perspective of that same cozy sleeping space.

Same PJ's (they're his favorite), different night. He clearly likes tiny places for sleeping. This spot between the head board and the gym mat I keep under the bed is BARELY big enough for his little body. And he was sound asleep here!

I called Edwin in to see and help me get him back into bed. Edwin grabbed his legs and gently started to pull and Jonah sucked in those little legs like a turtle with it's shell and continued to sleep!

Look how small that space is!

You made it! So here is the video I promised :)

I finally got a chance to look at all of those fun places Jonah finds to sleep! wow! They are hilarious! There are some days when I feel as though I could sleep anywhere like that. Thanks for sharing. :)
