Sleepin Over

A few weeks ago, when Charlotte went to the Cirque du Soleil, and then to the ballet, I promised Zach he could have a sleep over. He has been wanting to sleep in his big tent so I told him we would have TJ over and they could have snacks, watch cartoons late, and sleep in a tent in my room. Last Saturday night was the night. Why leave little Emerson out? She came to spend her first night away from mom and dad and sleep over at Grandma's!A blurry picture, but cute! Emerson played with Paw Paw for a while and then went straight to bed by 8 pm. She slept all night for me!!! What a good girl!The boys were excited to help put the tent up.Jammies on, they had a snack of cheese and crackers, made by Paw Paw himself!Then a couple hours of playing and cartoons.....TJ was asleep as soon as the TV went off. Zach, shortly after. Sweetheart slept downstairs....he was smart! I lay in bed listening to my grandson move almost every 30 seconds across that vinyl tent floor! It was LOUD. When he was still, he was grinding his teeth! When he was not grinding his teeth or moving, he was tootin!!! (Poor Zach was closed up in that tent with all those toots!) About 2:30 am Zach crawled out of the tent and asked me if he could please go get in his bed!!! I was not too tired to giggle. About 3 am I finally fell asleep and little Emerson woke me at 6 am through the baby monitor with an adorable chatter. At 7 am TJ came down the stairs wide eyed and bushy tailed, declaring, "Surprise!! It's me, TJ!!"
It was the BEST weekend sleep over ever! Really, I plan to do it more often...only TJ will sleep in Zach's room!

I usually sleep pretty sound, but when the grand kids sleep over I'm a light sleeper. I hear every little noise.....
Sweet little Emerson, I love when they wake up so happy.
Looks like a fun time.

Yes, I believe I would have put the tent in Zach's room. TJ is getting so big and I bet he imitating his buddie Zach. I know you were excited to have Emerson stay for the first time, and what a treat for mom & dad. I remember those days when I would lay awake listening to the monitor, hearing all those baby sounds.
