Snuggle Time, Then and Now

I can't quite remember the circumstances around this picture...I'm assuming that Baby B was up early, and it wasn't quite time to eat, so Daddy was snuggling with her for a few minutes.

I do remember very clearly that I was not happy with this snuggle...I was so scared that her head would tilt too far forward and compromise her airway. I threatened Daddy that he'd better not go to sleep. And if you look closely, you can see he has one eye open.

Baby B was 6 weeks and 5 days old, and weighed 7 pounds and 11 ounces (per our infant scale, and thanks to the copious notes I took!).

This picture was taken last week. Baby A was still napping, and I asked Baby B if she wanted to snuggle with Daddy for a few minutes while I enjoyed a bit more time to myself.

In this picture, at two-and-a-half years, and about 26.5 pounds, Baby B is the one with her eyes open.

I'm linking up with the sweet and talented Miss Cheryl at Twinfatuation this morning...and appreciating while time may indeed fly, the sweetness always remains.

I love this! How sweet, Mandy! I remember those moments of worrying about having the babies in our bed--even for a second---scared the ever-living-heck outta me! So glad to be past those days!

How lovely to appreciate these fleeting moments. To slow down, and appreciate where you've been. :)

awww!! Love those cuddles and naps! Too sweet. I bet they'll be sad when Daddy goes back to work, huh?
