sleepy head

Rhys slept so great all last week. So great that I was feeling the need to wake him up by the time 10 a.m. rolled around. He didn't even wake up at night as he frequently does. One morning, about 10 a.m. or so, I went in to get him and this is what I found.

As a side note, in case you're wondering, that is not his bedding. We layer his bed with sheets and lap pads for easy cleanup should Rhys make a mess (i.e. throw up) and the turkey sheet is left over from the NICU when he had themed bedding for every occasion. Thanks Nonna.

Anyway. Rhys loves.loves.loves that lovie blanket you see on his head. Aunt Amy bought it for him way back when he was in the NICU, before he could appreciate it. Now it is an absolute requirement to fall asleep. He has become so attached to it we felt the need to buy a back-up lovie. You know, for when lovie #1 needs to be washed (for those nights Rhys throws up), or goodness forbid if something happened to it. Because our little guy is smart. He knows which lovie is the "real" lovie and can pick it out of a pile without pausing to think about it. We limit the lovie use to bedtime only, so I'm hoping we can prevent him from wanting to drag it to kindergarten with him!
