I so wish I had pictures of this...

Jake has either been blessed to be able to sleep through anything, or it's a learned trait. But that boy is out five seconds after his head hits the pillow and once he is asleep you could drive a truck through the room and he wouldn't stir. I now have definitive proof of this. Two nights ago he was sleeping upstairs in Evie's room. She, as usual, was being a stinker and not going to sleep. Brian went to check on them when we heard her talking. He came back and told me that she was curled up next to Jake with an arm around his neck and telling herself a story. Fifteen minutes later I went down the hall to get something from my room and peeked in expecting to see a sweet tableau of my two children snuggled up and sound asleep. Wrong! Jake was asleep on his back and Evie was sitting on his chest and had her hands around his neck. She was lifting his head up and down, up and down, trying to get him to wake up and talk to her! She got moved to the end of the bed and told, sternly, that she was not to touch other people when they were sleeping. She started wailing because she got in trouble, and still Jake slept on. Two hours later he rolled out of bed. Yeah. That woke him up.

I wish I could go to sleep that fast. But I guess it can be dangerous to sleep that deeply. :)

Chrissy, As always, when I read your blog, I'm left with a big smile on my face! I'd love to have been a bug on the wall watching Evie bounce Jake's head around trying to get him to be better company. Hysterical! What is it about kids and blanket forts? I loved building them when I was a kid and my kids loved building them. Maybe it satisfies some kind of primeval urge to build one's own shelter. It's great as long as they don't try to build a fire and roast their latest kill!
