Talmage sometimes has a hard time keeping himself entertained while I am cooking, so I often find myself doing everything with him balanced on my hip. He loves to help me stir, put his hand on the can opener while I am using it, and try to grab pretty much everything I have in my hand. On this day, he was pretty happy for a while gumming Cheerios in his high chair. He's pretty good at grabbing the little pieces one at a time and sticking them in his mouth!
But he grew tired of the cereal after a while, and I still had some work to do. He was getting quite tired, but it was too late for him to have a nap, so he was pretty fussy. I was stirring some things on the stove when he started feeling heavier and heavier and I noticed his head hanging down. I glanced down and...sure enough! The poor boy had fallen asleep curled up on my shoulder. It was so sweet I was hesitant to wake him up!
