What is this kid doing???

Oliver has gotten in to the habit of waking up 3 or 4 times during the night. It's usually around 11pm, 2am, and 5am. This particular morning, he woke up at 4:40am. Usually, he'll go back to sleep if you rock him for a minute, but after 3 times of waking up that night, he decided he'd had enough of being put back to bed and so, for him, it was playtime. My sweet husband got up and watched him for a couple of hours while I tried to go back to sleep in our bedroom. At about 6:30 I woke up and relieved Christian of his duties. I fed and bathed Oliver and we hung out until I had to go to work at 8:30. I told a very sleepy Christian that I was leaving for work and then I was off. I called home around 11am and the still dreamy Christian asked me what time I had left earlier, thinking I had only been gone about an hour. "I woke you up at 8:30 and told you I was leaving, hon," I said. It was then he realized the wonderment of the circumstance above. He said through his laughter that he had woken up at 10:30 and come into the living room and this is how he found Oliver. He was asleep, face down, on the coffee table! What kinda crazies does this kid possess?! He was surrounded by a soft couch with warm blankets, a fuzzy rug and carpet, and pillows on the floor. Alternatively, he could have scooted himself back to our bedroom and crawled in bed with Christian. But, this son of his father chose to lay himself out on the hardest, coldest thing around to catch some shuteye. And, this is how we found him 6 hours after he woke up...

That is the most hilarious thing I've ever seen...so was he unattended for 2 1/2 hours? Watching videos, I presume? (I can say that b/c that is what my kids would be doing...) I have a very similar picture of Kate (look for it in a future post) asleep on Brian's office desk while watching Dora. Does that make us equally bad parents? By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

He actually wasn't watching videos. He was just playing with whatever he could get his hands on. He just discovered he can climb, though, so that's probably why he was on the coffee table.

That picture is worth a thousand words! And yes, it does make me think of the famous story of his Dad asleep on the library shelf at the Y. Both boys very cute!
