Just...can't...make it...

So, one of the (many) things that Brady has been doing lately to drive me and Keith crazy is not sleep long enough. He fights us for naps, and then only naps for an hour or so, and then doesn't want to go to bed, and then he wakes up in the middle of the night, and then gets up for the day around 6:30 or 7. This pattern got very old, very fast! Yesterday Brady pulled his normal trick of waking up after only a short 1 hour nap. (I should also mention that after every period of sleeping the first thing Brady does is toddle over to the rocking chair and "rock" for at least 5-10 minutes, by banging his head on the back of the chair so hard that it creates motion.) OK, where was I? Yeah, the 1 hour nap...so, he woke up from his nap and went over to the chair for his routine rocking. Well, the little guy just couldn't hold out any more. The lack of adequate sleep finally hit him and he "rocked" himself to sleep. Keith got pictures of him sleeping there, but the best is that Keith got video of Brady sleeping and every so often (like a kid on America's Funniest Videos) he would rouse just enough to "rock" a few times while his eyes were still halfway closed. I wish I could post the video on here, it makes for some good T.V., but for now the pictures will have to suffice.

He looks so cute in his Great Grandma's rocking chair. I wish I could find another chair like that.

That's so funny that he would wake a little and rock. We have some video of Sierra doing the same thing, sort of.
