As I stumbled out of bed this morning on my way to the kitchen for my first cup of brew, this sweet slumber scene caught me by surprise.

My heart burst just a little when I saw her hugging her new Build a Bear friend, Kit (thanks to a gift card from Pappo and Grandma), slumbering away on our sofa. And then, of course, I tippy-toed over to grab my camera and take a picture, holding my breath that the shutter wouldn't rouse her. It didn't.

She must have woken up early, and since we (Scott and I) are in late-night-no-routine-lazy-holiday mode we have been sleeping later, so she nestled into the couch and fell back asleep.

Capturing a moment like this is increasingly rare because she is usually functioning at full-tilt, 95 mph, live action animation with full commentary. In this moment I see her small hand and her beautiful face in their full innocence and child-like repose. Moments like these make me wish I could freeze time and savor them for a while. Maybe even a little longer.

*Can you name that Seinfeld reference? (What would life be like without Seinfeld references?)


  1. What a darling picture and great moment you captured here!

    I am ashamed to say I didn't catch the Seinfeld reference (what the?) and had to Google it. I thought I knew every episode in a quotable way, but apparently I don't dang it.

  2. Love the pic and I have to admit I don't get the reference, either. I thought I knew them all. I am guessing live action animation with full commentary, but not sure.

  3. Sorry, didn't mean to be so cryptic! The Seinfeld reference has to do with the title...


  4. Such a sweet pic! Sorry to see (twitter) that your daughter's not feeling well. Have fun watching Parent Trap!

  5. Is it when George & Jerry are switching the answering machine tape? I'll hang my head in shame if I'm wrong.

    I love peeking on my kids when they're asleep. It's childhood at its best :)

  6. Crystal I am SO proud of you (I had a feeling you'd be the one to get it). I was highly disappointed when Scott had no earthly idea what I was talking about--and I've used Tippy-Toe, Lemontree before as a code word.
