My Stubborn Child

Noah and I had a hard night tonight.

The little guy was bound & determined not to go to sleep when I
laid him down this evening. Actually, over the past couple of days it's been
a constant struggle getting Noah to lay down and stay in bed until he falls asleep.

Oh, the joys of stubborn toddlers.

Let's just say Noah's little hiney got a few spankings
tonight {as much as I hate giving them!},
and he finally gave up and fell asleep.

Or so I thought.

Not long ago, I walked into our room and guess who I
found so sweetly snuggled up in our bed?

Why do they have to be so stinkin'
cute when they're sleeping?!

Melt my heart.

They can be quite the stinkers at this age! But then they do something so cute and it makes you forget they were naughty. Those pictures are just adorable!

i am not looking forward to that when george grows up...he's only five months old and he's alreay testing his boundries. he's also starting to reach for me...which makes it harder to be hardcore! good luck my friend!

Aw, sorry you've been having some hard nights! We know what that's like. And he is really cute all snuggled in your bed.

Tee hee.... as someone once told me, "you can sleep when your dead".... sometimes it seems like that as a mommy huh?

adorable! mia has been terribly stubborn and naughty since we've been home.

Noah looks so sweet and innocent when he's sleeping :)

I've missed you!

This definitely melts my heart too! And then when they are so sweet, it makes you feel bad for when you had to get on to them. No matter how much he has grown, this post proves that he is still as precious as can be!

awww! i can't even imagine trying discipline an adorable child that i made when i have a hard time with my pug. did i mention that i also have a pug? his name is winston. i want a black one really bad, but my husband has put his foot down. anyway, Noah is precious. at least he was sleeping and not getting into something, right?

Oh. my. gosh. The most precious pictures, ever!!! And you're right, their cuteness when they're sleeping makes up for all their naughtyness. (sometimes!) He he.
