Best Bed Mates

Lincoln has been hanging out in my bed at night.  He's had a cold which turned into a horrible cough.  He bit his tongue and it was really bugging him for a few nights.  The list of excuses goes on and on (rather too far, in his Father's opinion!).  Sometimes I tip toe him back to his bed once he's asleep but he's almost always back before it's time to get up in the morning.

What about Evan, you ask?  If he was willing to stay in the bed safely he'd be welcome to join in on the fun!  He's still at the age where he's just as happy to crawl straight off the edge though, which makes for a rather nerve wracking night of restless sleep on my part!

Anyway, back to Lincoln and me (and Matt).  It's a king bed, we upgraded last year, so there's plenty of room.  Even if our little friend insists on sleeping sideways so he can head butt one parent while kicking the other.  :)  The other night we had a new bed mate though - Bentley!

A quality selfy, courtesy of the "most used phone in the world" - or so the iPhone commercials tell me:

We've had high winds lately and Bentley is not a fan.  Not at all.  The wind whistles through the trees and against the windows, and despite my assurances to Mr. B that it's just the wind singing, he is not a happy camper.  It's become a bit of a power issue between Bentley and Jake.  When Jake is feeling magnanimous he lets Bentley sleep on his bed while the wind howls.  But if he's feeling a bit ornery?  He denies that privilege.  So Lincoln and I made room for Bentley.  It took a while for them to get to sleep because of the giggles, but that's okay.  We can always sleep in - yet another benefit to saying no to the yellow bus!
