A little break from NY photos to post these heart-rending shots of Q asleep that I took with my iPhone this afternoon.
New York threw off Q's sleeping schedule by a couple of hours, and since our return she (usually a relatively late sleeper) has been waking at the crack of dawn. We spent the mid-morning today having a delightful guided tour of our beloved botanical gardens, thanks to my husband's parents, who have old friends in town from Jerusalem. Though the weather was lovely and dry, relatively cool for August, the strong Colorado sun got the best of Q, and after we stopped for a takeout lunch from a local Italian deli, she passed out cold in the car on the drive home. Grapes are among her favorite foods at the moment, but she fell asleep before she could consume her bounty.
Often, when she falls asleep in the car, she wakes when we lift her out to carry her to her bed. But today she was so tired and overwhelmed by her early morning and botanical tour that she barely twitched when I lifted her from the car and carried her to bed. I didn't have the heart to undress her, and here she lay for the rest of the afternoon. Is she not so very beautiful when she sleeps?
