Sleepy cuddles | My captured moment

Sleepy cuddles | My captured moment

I’m sharing a photo of a precious moment of Baby R and I this week. It was taken just as I was putting him down for nap on that blissful moment where your baby’s snuggled asleep in your arms.

When I sat down to edit it, I had the full intention of cropping it down to just the two of us, then changed my mind. This a real life, a real moment so why not keep it just as it was?

I often let him nap in my arms during the day, I like it, he likes it and I know it sure as hell won’t be this way forever, so why not save these precious tender moments of delicious sleepy cuddles?

    Very rarely do my girls do this! 🙁 They are 3 and 5 now.

    This photo is so nice xxx

      Thanks Beth. It’s something I always missed from my older boys so I’m relishing these moments while they last as I’ve had an extra shot at being a mum to a baby.

    Aww cute! Mine would have to be really tired to fall asleep in my arms… So lovely when they do though. #mycapturedmoment

      It is, isn’t it. My little ones the opposite, he prefers to sleep in my arms than anywhere else.

    These moments are so rare for me now, and only happen when the wee girl is ill. And, much as I hate her being ill there is always a small part of me that loves the snuggles. Gorgeous photo x

      I am relishing every cuddle as I know they soon come to an end

I'd love to know what you think?
