The One I Took With My Cell Phone


I took this picture with my cell phone.

I walked into his room to check on him and found him like this. I wonder if he was talking to his bear about how much he loves his brothers and slowly just drifted off to sleep.

I pulled my phone out of my pocket and clicked. Had I run downstairs to grab my camera, this moment might have been gone. My footsteps might have woken him and I'd have only my memory to help me savor the sweetness of everything I see and taste and smell here.

My cell phone is old. The camera on it isn't very good. It's particularly not good when it's covered in peanut butter from the sticky little fingers that love to get their hands on it.

But, the fact that I took this photo with my peanut butter covered camera on my cell phone in no way diminishes how precious it is to me.

We've talked about this before - and, you know what? I absolutely believe it!

I'm living it.

This is my sleeping baby boy lookin' so very precious and warm and sweet and he's snuggling with his bear that bears his name.


And, I am his doting Momma who wants to remember.


  1. So Sweet! I have many pictures that I have taken of my little loves that are out of focus, blurred, and crooked but it doesn't matter. They are pictures of my sweet boys and it's a memory captured.

  2. soooo glad you caught it!!! Precious indeed.....ooooh, I could just EAT HIM!!!! So yummy sweet!!!

  3. This one made me sweet. I know exactly how you feel.
