Sleepy Cuddles

When O was a baby he would always fall asleep on my chest. We would spend hours in those early days snuggled on the couch, warm and happy, watching rubbish TV in a newborn/new mummy haze.

Now that he’s three it doesn’t really happen anymore. Whilst he’s more than happy to have a cuddle watching Sheriff Callie he rarely falls asleep whilst sitting on my knee.

When he did last Sunday it was a bit of a throwback to those baby days and despite it being past his bedtime I couldn’t bring myself to take him up. So we snuggled with his head nestling under my chin and his legs tucked around my side. Precious moments with my boy who is growing up too quickly.

    Oh what a lovely moment. And as you say, when our little ones age these become all the more rare, so they’re definitely moments to etch into our memories. Steph xxx

    what a beautiful picture and gorgeous moment. My 3 year old no longer falls asleep on me but when he did as he was poorly last week I just sat there with him and cherished the moment xx

    Sooo lovely and such an adorable pic. Z used to do this but he loves falling asleep on his Daddy now so I’m always trying to nick him back 🙂 x

    This is so gorgeous!!! It’s amazing how fast those newborn sleepy cuddle days disappear but I think when they happen when they are that bit bigger they are all the more special and a chance to reminisce on those teeny tiny days! Xx

    So gorgeous Jo- my two rarely do this anymore unless they are poorly but when they do I remember to myself not to move. You never know when they will completely stop and for a second it does make you feel like they are your little babies once more. xx

    I do that with my boy when he wants to snuggle into me, everything goes on hold! The tea can burn, the washing can stay damp, the bath can overflow, lol! As long as I get my snuggles! X

    I know what you mean!! I loved those new baby days too for this exact reason. Although rare these days, I do get the odd little cuddle nap from my two year old and I make the most of each one! Well done for capturing the moment with this beautiful shot xxx

    Aww that’s lovely Jo, I’m the same, it never happens with Monkey anymore, even when he is poorly he just likes his own space and never wants to snuggle for more than a couple of mins, and tbh those cuddles are blimming uncomfortable now as he is a fidget pants with sharp elbows lol! Gorgeous shot of the two of you and I don’t blame you for making the most of it xx

    I took a similar picture the last time Elsa fell asleep on me too. It hardly ever happens anymore (unless you count EVERY NIGHT when she gets in my bed because she hates her cot) but there’s something so lovely about having your little one cuddled up and snoozing on you 🙂

      Thanks, I love it when he falls asleep on me (it’s the only time he stops talking!) X

    Beautiful! Such a lovely moment. My boy does not often sleep on me, apart from when he is ill. But it is nice to get back such a special moment. Those moment become fewer as they get older. Thank you so much for joining in again. I hope to see you on the 4th May. #monthlymondaymelfie
