Blowing Bubbles in the water:
After his long and oh so tiring 20 minute "swim"/splash around in the pool, he was ready to go home. We fixed a quick little snack of graham crackers and peanut butter. He was sooo sleepy the poor lil guy could hardly keep his eyes open as he ate.
*Although he isn't really sleeping in this picture, I thought it was a good representation of how heavy his eyes were. Or maybe he was just deep in thought as he spread on his peanut butter. =) After his snack, he tried to watch a few minutes of one of his favorite tv shows but he just couldn't do it. It was about 9:30 and he came over to me and uttered 4 words that I have NEVER heard him say before (of course, in that specific order) and didn't think I would EVER hear him say: "Let's go to bed." I was in absolute shock! We walked upstairs, he crawled into bed and in less than 5 minutes here he was out for the count!
How sweet is this lil guy as he's sleeping!?! Now as much as I would love to think he was so sleepy because he didn't have a nap today and we had such a fun day, I'm not totally convinced. Shortly before we went swimming he took one of his lil "night time medicines" as we like to call it...but is actually Melatonin. Tonight was his third night to take it. Although it worked well tonight, I'm still not quite convinced of its effectiveness. Hopefully by this weekend I will be able to see if it really helps him or not. If anyone has had any experience using Melatonin, I would love to hear your input. =)
