Wordful Wednesday



When Mekhi was an infant he loved his jumperoo jumper. Before he could walk he would get in that thing and jump like a Mexican Jumping Bean. It was great for me because it gave me time to do things around the house while he entertained himself. One day I went to take a shower and put him in the jumper. When I returned (it was a quicky, 5 mintues or less has been the norm with baby around) I found him fast asleep. I knew that no one would believe it so I quickly snapped this photo. And for back-up I also videotaped it. This photo is the result and he looked so peaceful I didn't want to disturb him. I let him sleep there for about 15 minutes and then transferred him to the crib.

(Of course when I went to put him in the crib he woke up and I had to rock him back to sleep. Not unusual. I still rock him to sleep at night. I know, I know. We are getting better. I read, rock and in the crib he goes. He protests a little bit but he is getting better. )

For more Wordful Wednesday visit Angie's Seven Clown Circus.

This post is my entry in the "Sleeping Angel" Contest hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. I am hoping to win the Summer Breeze Bedroom Set.

Bridget said...

Gotta love those jumparoos! The same thing happend with James, he loved his so much and too fell asleep in it once. I remember trying to be so carefull to get him out without waking him he kinda woke back up and started jumping again half in his sleep. Your little guy is so cute!

angie said...

SOOOOOOO cute. I wish I could fall asleep doing everyday things. :)

AVT Coach said...

This is a cute photo! I wonder if he will want to bungee jump when he is older! I love the read-rock routine!

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

What a darling picture. It is funny how they can fall asleep just about anywhere. I have to says rocking and cuddling with my kids to get them to sleep is such a wonderful bonding thing. I say do it while you can.

Ms. Bar B: said...

Lil' man jumped himself to sleep, lol. Don't you just love those things?? Miss J's favorite used to be the swing. It would always keep her happy and provide the perfect extra set of arms to provide the rocking =)

Rhonda said...

Don't you wish you could fall asleep like that? Whenever? Wherever?? I sure wish I do!!!

Weeksie50 said...

Oh, he is to stinkin' cute.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

What a sweet picture?
Where do you get those adorable cartoon feedburner thingies? I'm seeing them everywhere and I want one!

Lacey in the Sky said...

That jumping will just exhaust you, huh? I love when kids just pass out like that- so funny. :) He is too cute!

lilialately said...

Cute!

Whenever I get annoyed that Lilia needs my assistance to get to sleep, I try to remind myself that she won't want me to snuggle her to sleep in 15 years (give or take a few...) and to just take a deep breath and enjoy. :-)

CaraBee said...

That is so cute! Man, when my daughter falls asleep somewhere, I leave her. A sleeping baby = happy mommy.

mannequin said...

So precious!
I looked forward to rocking Emil at night and it was him that had to say "NO".
If he weren't so heavy, I'd still drag him into the rocker and force him to listen to my reading, lol.
Thankfully, we've got the porch swing so that will be nice on summer evenings; not the same but it's the best I can conjure up!

Jacqueline said...

Kids bring so much joy in the purest form. :-) Cute.

Kelly said...

i wish i could just pass out anywhere. i would pass out at my desk right now if i could!

Kim @ What's That Smell? said...

He looks so adorable!

We had a Jumperoo and both my kids loved it...until the dog had a seizure, and well..let's just say there was no cleaning the YUCK or smell that came out of the dog off it so my husband destroyed it (so someone else wouldn't take it from the curb and make their kids sick)

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh yes, the jumpers. Gotta love those!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cute!!!!

mommaof4wife2r said...

ROSA E OLIVIER said...

"love is the one who masters all things..."

Mawlãnã Rumi...for you...

Jennae @ Green Your Decor said...

This is the cutest photo! He looks really comfortable. My daughter still has those moments of falling asleep comfortably somewhere (like the car) only to wake up the second I try to move her. And when I say awake, I mean WIDE awake :) When she was an infant, she always fell asleep in her bouncy chair, which, thanksfully for me, also vibrated. She loved that thing!

tollesons4him said...

This is so sweet, great photo
Happy ~WW~

Trish said...

That is so precious! He just tired himself right out!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

very adorable - I have picts like this as well with my kiddies!

Brenda Jean said...

Awwwww...I wish I could fall asleep that easy and anywhere I wanted to:)

ali said...

Isn't it funny all the places they'll sleep and the things they can sleep through? When my oldest was a baby he would fall asleep in his highchair and even fell asleep at a dirt track!

Carrie said...

Now that is the life, sometimes I wish I could bounce myself to sleep. Such a cutie!

Petula said...

Isn't it funny the positions they fall asleep in? I have a picture of my oldest and the second one slumping over in their swings. There's one of the third and fourth ones knocked out in the high chairs. I love that those moments are captured on film... the time goes by so quickly.

Threeboys1mommy said...

There is this small space between my couch and the wall where my older sons like to hide. When I went to check on them they were piled on each other fast asleep. I wish I had my camera then.

Sheliza said...

I could tell the identical story! Same thing happened with my little William!! I love the photo!!

Sage and Savvy said...

Isn't it just amazing where kids will fall asleep? =)

Cristin said...

Love sleeping baby pics... my kids never liked the jumperoo... but I have plenty of shots of them sleeping in the swing...

The Pitter Patter Boutique said...

Awww, what a cutie! We had that exact same jumper with my daughter (now 1) and I'm sad to say, it didn't work with her.

Happy WW

mrsbear said...

I love that they can fall asleep anywhere. Adorable. Happy belated WW. ;-)

Raquel said...

Aww, so cute and what a nice captured. It amaze me how children can fall asleep anywhere. My daughter fall asleep while hubby gave her a shower.

April said...

super cute! my little one loves the jumperoo too!!!

fly tie said...

sweet. :-) seems like babies are good for that: (wearing themselves out through play, bouncing, moving)

i can imagine that devices like those certainly come in handy.

Liza said...

Heather said...

OH, I wish I could sleep that peacefully.

les_mason_curt said...

oh, man what a sweet picture... love those little chubby cheeks...
i rocked mason to sleep until he would not let me anymore... let me tall you, that was a sad night when he said, "bed Momma..." I used to think it was so the wrong thing to do, but as i did it more every night and at nap time I realized that i was getting some of the best sunggles of anyone and i would never ever get that time back- ever! he is now 2 and growing like a weed...
Rock on sister, rock on!

Honey Mommy said...

How cute! I think it's precious when they get so tired they just pass out!

BoufMom9 said...

OMGOsh! So cute! I have a pic of my twins both sleeping in their jumpers from way back when. So funny that they jump so much that they are exhausted and fall asleep. :)
ps Popping over from WW

Weeksie50 said...

I love this picture!

Ryanne said...

What a little cute one you have there, and so peaceful looking. I love the jumperoo, they can be a life saver. My son used to fall asleep in the most awkward places too. aren't you so glad you thought to snap a quick picture?

Sarah C. said...

He's so cute! I need to go scrapbook some of my little fellas pictures from this age!

kitrona said...

Oh my goodness, he is so cute! My little guy hasn't done that yet, but he falls asleep in the car all the time. :)
