Project 52 | Week 15: Sleep

Apri 29… Sleep: Where do you sleep? Your children sleeping… peaceful moments.

“I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand.
You felt so good in it; no bigger than a minute.
How it amazes me you’re changin’ with every blink.
Faster than a flower blooms, they grow up all too soon.

So let them be little,
‘Cause they’re only that way for a while.
Give ‘em hope, give them praise,
Give them love every day.
Let ‘em cry, let ‘em giggle,
Let ‘em sleep in the middle,
Oh, but let them be little.

I never felt so much in one little tender touch.
I live for those kisses, your prayers an’ your wishes.
An’ now you’re teachin’ me how only a child can see.
Tonight, while we’re on our knees, all I ask is:

Please, let them be little,
‘Cause they’re only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give them praise,
Give them love every day.
Let ‘em cry, let ‘em giggle,
Let ‘em sleep in the middle,
Oh, but let them be little.

The so innocent, precious soul:
You turn around, an’ it’s time to let them go.

So let them be little,
‘Cause they’re only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give ‘em praise,
Give them love every day.
Let ‘em cry, let ‘em giggle,
Let them sleep in the middle,
Oh, but let them be little.

Let them be little”

-Lonestar

She turned 8 this week… She used to come in our room in the middle of the night and jump in our bed almost every single night… now it is just seems to happen once and a while… This week they are on spring break, so they can sleep in… and on this one particular morning she was still sleeping in our bed looking like an angel when I got up… I am glad our project this week was to get a sleep shot… I want to capture moments like this before they are gone for good… and before she no longer wants to “sleep in the middle”…
