Allrighty Then

My eyes popped open at 5:49 this morning and I realized that someone had slept in his firetruck bed all night.

Of course I couldn't just go back to sleep. I had to go check on him. Only, I couldn't FIND him. He wasn't in his firetruck bed. And he wasn't on the floor. I rubbed my eyes and tried to wake up and thought I better check my bed again. Maybe he did get in bed with me after all.

Nope.

So I headed downstairs and checked the couch and playroom, then down another flight of stairs to check the couch down there. In the meantime I rouse hubby awake and tell him I can't find Gray. We check the firetruck bed again and then there, up on the top bunk curled up next to Carter, was a sleeping Gray. He's actually still sleeping there right now. I covered him up and went back to bed.

Hubby thinks I'm jealous. I just wonder why he went up there to his brother, and not into my room? I am not jealous! I don't think...?

  3. That is so sweet, just take it as he is getting ready to be a big brother.

    But those two have a bond, I saw it, I have photographic proof!

  5. oh, this put such a big smile on my face and is so funny. Reminded me of Nate never staying in his bed and finding him in odd places. Like CE said, he IS getting prepared to be a big brother and he loves his carter bear.

  8. So cute! After a moment of panic. Maybe he knows that they baby will be sleeping with mom soon so he has to find a new sleeping buddy.

  9. Mr. AIB here: You didn't mention that I flat out called it. I'm half asleep and I say, "Well did you check Carter's bed?" I so know my boys. And yes, I saw your face, you were totally jealous. J-E-A-LLLLLOUS!

  10. Our went through a phase where they all piled into one room and bed like a bunch of puppies--made us wonder why the multi-bedroom house seemed like such a necessity!

    Saw that you might have been outed about the big green-eyed monster in the above comment....hmmmm....

    Blessings!

  11. It takes your breath away when they aren't where they are "supposed" to be, doesn't it?? How sweet to cuddle with brother!

  12. That is so sweet. I would have been a nervous wreck if I peaked in on Madison and she wasn't there. Of course this would mean she would have to be sleeping somewhere other than my bed!

    Ah... Gray is nesting, too!! What a tribute to the warmth of his brother!

  14. Aww, that is good though, right? It'd be hard to have Gray and Ivy in the bed. I would think...Aww, he chose his brother. that's sweet!

  15. How sweet.
    But I have to admit, the first time my son slept through the night without needing to come to our bed, I was totally a little sad. I mean, it's what we wanted, but my bed felt a little less cozy the next morning!

  16. He wants to sleep close by someone! That is so cute! But I know I would had the same reaction as you!

  18. Oh that is so cute! What a big step for him...growing up...awwww. Hang in there... :)

  19. So sweet! I'm sure it really stressed you out at first when you couldn't find him. Whether or not there is any jealousy (I read Mr. AIB's comment!) I'm sure there is mixed emotion regarding the growing up of Gray. I feel that with every new little thing Sweetpea does.

    Hugs to you, Momma!

  30. Awww... Such a cute story! Maybe my daughter needs a sibling, so she can sleep too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's ok if you're a wee bit jealous. Although, if I were you I'd be just fine with him up there rather than invading my space! HA!

    How cute that he was sleeping with his bro...

  32. OMGosh! I have so had that happen before, but I always end up finding them up under a bed or something. A few minutes of terro in the middle of the night is always nice...

    ReplyDelete
  33. how very sweet! my oldest (liberty) is always trying to get in bed with her little sister (leila)...but only when we are putting them to bed...and it ticks leila off big time! i would probably be jealous, too!

  38. Oh if that isn't the cutest thing ever. That he did it and that Carter didn't mind!

    Also, I don't think I've ever seen a comment from your Mr. AIB on here before...so funny! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. That conjures up such a cute picture! (Did you actually get one of the two of them?)

    P.S. What's the spider bite remedy (below in the comments)? Cassidy gets them a lot and sometimes we end up having to put her on antibiotics.

  41. That adorable! I love the relationship between my children.

    My son has the race car bed. He's still sleeping there and giving me more time on the computer. :-)

  42. The first morning I woke up after Sam slept in his bed a full night was terrifying - I couldn't believe it was morning. That's adorable that he had another destination in mind:)
