A Girl After My Own Heart

I've mentioned before that I routinely check on Jade late at night.

I started seeing a trend and began photographing it.

Do you notice anything?







One foot out from under the blanket. Like mother like daughter.

And just like me, it doesn't matter which foot, but one of them has to stick out. At all times. No matter the season or the temperature.

It sort of serves as some sort of regulator so you don't get too hot. And socks? Out of the question. You'll never ever find me wearing socks while I'm trying to sleep.

And now that I've seen Jade take on mommy's little foot ritual, I won't be putting any on her either. Not even when winter comes.

I'm sure Jade will be thankful for no more flashes in her room at random hours of the night. Oh to be a mommy blogger's child. I need to add "set up therapy fund for children" to my to-do list.

What is more amazing than watching your own child sleep. We enjoyed today. Thanks for having us all invade your house. It always nice to see everyone. Enjoy those precious southern girls. They are so adorable.

That's cute. I kinda do the same thing. I hang my leg off the side of the bed sometimes :)

Oh my word. That's amazing...she sure knows what she likes! And there's no getting around the fact that she's a bloggin' mama's child. :)

Hahahaha! That is so cute! :)

And don't feel alone - I too snap photos of my miniatures when they're asleep. Sometimes us mom's just have to! :)

i defintely agree with the one foot out rule. it really makes a difference. i sleep like that occasionally-last night actually. but, for me socks help me if i am cold but dont want to add more clothes!

I just took pics of my kids sleeping for the blog this week too, drool and all!

Jade must like her head up next to the side too. When you find something that works, stick with it. Very cute pics!

I also enjoy the one leg out... unless it is freezing...or one million degrees in or house...in that case, I keep the entire body out....OK..so maybe I am not a true one leg girl....NEVERMIND....

Too funny! I do the same exact thing. My crazy son though, he HAS to have socks on his feet at night. Nuts!

Thanks for dropping my my blog. :)
