Who can resist a sleeping baby? As our children get older, and we get older the joy we get from watching them sleep is something that doesn’t change. Whether your child is an infant or a teenager, there is great comfort to be found in watching them sleep. No matter what their age, they will always be our babies. There are few things as gratifying and heart-warming as watching your child sleeping peacefully, lost in their own little world of dreams, with no cares or worries. As they sleep safely in a cocoon of warmth and love. Watching our children sleep is one of the greatest rewards of motherhood, and a sign of a job well done.
I am a YesVideo Storyteller which means I get the opportunity to test out their video services. This is a compensated ambassadorship, but all opinions are my own.
Mr. Emerson sure knew what he was talking about.
I recall when my son was an infant and I was so sleep deprived. Still, no matter how stressed I was or how much I need to get him to sleep to finish what I am doing, as soon as his eyelids drop I would stay. I would stay and watch. Immediately I would feel more relaxed and worry free. I love the effect watching sleeping babies has on me! Do you feel the same way?
I recently spent the weekend visiting my son, now 27 years old, and that first morning I didn’t have the heart to wake him. Instead, I sat and watched him sleep for hours on end and had the most glorious morning watching my sweet baby sleep. Gosh, how I miss those moments. My heart mourns over the moments I have lost with my baby. Our children are babies for only a fraction of the time we have with them. I wish I had captured every single moment with my baby on video so I could relive them over and over again.
Speaking of capturing moments on video, I am going to take this moment to embarrass my brother a little. He is a wonderful father to his three children. I don’t think I have ever known a man more dedicated to the happiness and well being of his kids. I recently sent a bunch of old video camera tapes over to YesVideo for conversion to DVD, and this sweet clip of my brother watching his youngest Maddie sleep. It’s what he does while she sleeps that is so precious.
It’s impossible to leave a room and not sneak in a few more kisses from your little ones. I think those kisses help them to sleep better. Do you love to watch your baby sleep?

There has never been more truth said – there is something about the innocence of a child while sleeping that just makes one melt.
