"Mom, Baby cute."

It looks like he's starting to really like her.

Audrey awakened during her nap and I intended to just let her cry herself back to sleep. I was surprised to hear Hyrum calling her name, "Daudrey, Daudrey," as he walked down the hall and into her bedroom. Still calling her name he climbed up on the rocking chair and leaned over her crib and said, "Hi Daudrey, you wake up!"

A couple hours later...

I put Audrey back to sleep and I was cleaning up Hyrum's room. (It's actually one of my favorite things to do... line up the books and toys...stack the blocks...put the puzzles together...) I realized that Hyrum was being very quiet and went to investigate.
I looked down the hall and saw Audrey's door open.
I saw Hyrum in Audrey's crib! In about one second I analyzed the situation: Hyrum was in Audrey's crib; He appeared to be crawling right where Audrey was sleeping; Audrey wasn't making any noise; I pictured him somehow smothering her, sitting on her, blanket over her head... I started to run.
To my astonishment Audrey was sound asleep, with full respiration! Hyrum, as quite as a mouse, just nuzzled down next to her and patted her back. He motioned for me to leave.
I just stood back and watched my cute little babies cuddled together. I was able to bribe him away with the idea of getting a snack. As I carried him out of the nursery, he said, "Mom, baby cute."

It's moments like this that you remember how good it feels to be a mom, which we all need every once in a while!

That is the cutest story I have ever heard! Hyrum is so adorable! Audrey is very lucky to have such a great big brother. I bet those boys will have to really watch out when she gets into high school! :)
