Alex sleeps

Close your eyes and you will see
Micro-flashing neon lights
Open your eyes and you will see
It still looks like the same thing

Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heart beat too fast for sleep
Close your eyes and you will see
The sound asleep

I want to go, I want to go
I want to go down to go to sleep
Your frame of reference
Is my swimming pool

My, my swimming pool
Still looks like the China sea
Pool to sea and finally
The sound asleep

Feel the muscles in your face
Twitch, relax, remembering
Everything that went down and will go down
I want to go down to sleep

Insomnia, no sleep disease
Petties parking, feed me please
Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heart beat too fast for sleep

… It was too wet to play
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold wet day.
from The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss

Alex Sleeps

This picture was taken just a couple of days before I left. Alex was restless, and I was rocking him to sleep. When you’re separated from your family, you find its the little things that come to mind–its the little things you miss the most. A simple moment such as this is worth its weight in gold.

Only 24 more days…

Remember when you were in school and you’d lay your head on your desk, resting it on your arms?

Adam Sleeping

I suppose this posture just comes naturally.

There’s nothing Alex enjoys better after a long day of babying than relaxing in front of the boob-tube…

Last night the boys f-i-n-a-l-l-y slept through the night! Although this didn’t affect me all that much (my “shift” ends at midnight), it was a big treat for mommy (who still got up several times to check on them)…

Please sleep

Adam takes a break from screaming to rest his vocal cords with a little power nap…

Cute?  Sure, but he’s waking up in 5…4…3…2…
