"Waking Up Is Hard To Do"

Many of you can attest to the fact that I am NOT a morning person... not ever.. not even slightly. In the middle of the night I am the lightest sleeper, but first thing in the morning I am dead to the world. I just hit this funny stage where, even if my eyes are open, I'm not really awake. Half the time I don't even know what's going on around me. And "sources" say that I'm not exactly "good-looking" when this occurs. I can feel it too... I lose all control over the muscles in my face! Well sadly, it seems as though my poor child has inherited this as well.

When he wakes up from his nap, he smashes his face against the netting in his Pack-n-Play and screams until someone comes to rescue him.
You may be thinking... big deal... don't all kids do that? Well they probably do, but only my child could turn from this: to this:
Poor kid doesn't have a chance. He has all the classic signs... Droopy eyes, flared nostrils, big lips. Don't judge folks. He can't help it.

But aren't his jammies so cute? (Thanks Katie) Somehow, I gave birth to the skinniest little thing. Like an adorable little string bean, huh?
I also took a picture of me with Jay because I realized that I have almost no pictures with him. I'm always behind the camera and one day Jay will look at his childhood and wonder if he really ever had a mom. So look Jay! I exist!

Yay! A picture of Stacy! :) Good to "see" you again! You sure have a cute little guy. And yes, I'll attest to the "you're not a morning person" fact. :) That's okay, though. I'm not really either. I love you anyway!

I loved watching how much he loves you during our visit the other weekend. He may have inherited the "morning uglies," but he still has the best mom ever. Hands down.
