Lie still and slumber...

Hush, my dear, lie still and slumber!

Holy angels guard thy bed!

Heavenly blessings without number

Gently falling on thy head.

—Isaac Watts (1674–1748)

 

When I got home late from work last week, Jen rushed me into the living room to see my two little whirling dervishes sound asleep. AJ had requested an astronomy Discovery program on TV as a treat, and she obliged. Not five minutes after the program started, she looked over and they were cuddled up, and sound asleep.

 

During they day they're filled with crazy, frenetic energy. That's what makes dozing and cuddling so amazing.
