Thursday's Theme: Ritual

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
Let the angels watch over me through the night
and keep me in their blessed sight. Amen.

I don't want to say that praying is a "ritual" in our house, because that's not really how God wants us to pray. But, it is something we do before every meal and before bedtime, so technically speaking it is a ritual. Adam likes the "AMEN" part, and he likes it when mommy peeks at him, to see if he has his head down (usually he giggles mid-prayer when I do that).

I just love sleeping baby pictures. I snapped this one during nap the other day. :) Funny how it looks like other sleeping pictures I've posted. Oh well. haha.

That's a wonderful ritual to instill in your boys. And a sweet sleeping picture. I'm a sucker for sleeping babies, too. :o)

Of course! PErfect ritual. I love sleeping baby photos too.

Will you stop by and leave some mommy advice for my friend preggo with triplets? You are still in the little baby game with a toddler, so I know you have a great perspective for her!
Thanks!
