joy of love (their eyes and routines)

their eyes

Day 12 for the joy of love is 'eyes.'
They both have very dark brown eyes that reflect the light beautifully.
Our eyes are the mirrors to our souls and I couldn't agree more.
In Grace's I see happiness, peace and a bit of wisdom thrown in for good measure.
Will's sparkle with fun, some mischief and and a whole lot of intelligence.

sleeping - routines

And for day 13 the assignment was 'routines.'
The routines of our daily lives.
I chose sleeping...
taken 2 nights ago of Will, he fell fast asleep on the family room sofa
right before bedtime.
At 5 he sucks his left hand finger before he falls asleep.
He must have one of his blankies nearby (that's one next to his face)
I think that's adorable.
Will plays hard most of the day and sleeps deeply all night.
He's got to recharge those batteries for the next day! ;)

I love these Gail! They have such deep, dark soulful eyes. I have the same dark brown eyes as Liam and Natalie. When I was young kids used to tease me of not having pupils because they were so dark. I, on the other hand, tell my kids they have eyes the color of melted chocolate. Good enough to eat! :-)

Will looks so peaceful while he sleeps. I love how you captured him with his blanket. I have so many of Liam with Tyler. I think it's the best to have something to cuddle while you're asleep.

Enjoy your Sunday evening. I haven't even thought of my "routine" photo for today. Haven't even lifted my camera off the counter.

I just had to comment on how beautiful Grace's teeth look. You might just get away with no braces. I was hoping the same for Natalie. Her teeth look beautiful too, but she will probably need a retainer of some sort to straighten out her over bite. She's never sucked her thumb or pacifier so I guess it's just something in the gene pool.

Number 6 and no more counting! said...

such beautiful eyes set in such perfect little faces.

And, I bet when William falls asleep on the sofa you can't help but smile at that cute face. So sweet with the fingers and the blankie.
