9. today i'm grateful for a sleepy little boy who is struggling with the time change.
he has fallen asleep on the sofa or chair three nights in a row now.
we all giggle while he twitches as he falls deeper and deeper asleep.
the older children tip toe over to the sofa quietly, and peek at him, and say things like, "mommy, he's so cute!"
john picks up his limp little body and carries him up to his bed.
but not before i plant a few kisses on his soft chubby cheekers.
