In the Hush

An important part of showing 'a week in the life' for me is capturing the routine of everyday. It's about our normal life and the moments I will look back on fondly and deeply miss. Photos like this one of my youngest snuggling with her "purps" (as she calls it) as she drifts off to sleep. She fidgets with it right under her nose, sniffing and smelling for just the right spot and as she discovers it...heaven...and the settling in of sweet, sweet sleep.

This post was inspired by the 5 Minutes for Mom bedroom set giveaway sponsored by Home & Bedroom Furniture. If anyone needs a nice, new, matching bedroom set it's the underprivileged second child in our house. She's got all the mismatched hand-me downs in her room-poor baby. And the smallest room with no closet. Sheesh.
Wish me luck. I would so love to win this for her! And I encourage you to enter the contest too if you haven't already. The deadline to enter is Oct. 13th.

Good luck! My second loves hand me downs. If it was sister's, it's better.

My second daughter has a blankie that she sleeps with - calls it her "buddy" and holds it right up against her nose, thumb in mouth, before she falls asleep. I'm sad that soon I will have to try to break that habit. said...

sweet capture. Thanks for sharing.
