It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Falling Asleep In Highchairs


Remember this feeling? Being so, so sleepy. The eyelids getting heavier..., tummy full ..... and if it wasn't a "binky", it was a favorite blanket or a bear with it's button eye missing. Your family was all around you and the world seemed safe.

I do.....

I hadn't seen the photo in your header as I'd been using Google Reader. It brought tears to my eyes - I can imagine Lyle took it of his three "girls". Was it a Napa picnic?

And you in the highchair! So adorable with those blond curls...

So sweet. I miss having a sweet toddler, face covered with spaghetti noodles, sleeping soundly in his highchair. Thanks for the memories.

Love the pics the one of you is adorable. Our oldest son once fell asleep standing up, leaning on chair & one of the twins fell asleep on the toilet! Unfortunately, no pics of either event!
