jet lag much, Mateo?

We’re HOME. Back in Chicago, that is! :)

Last night we slept in our own  bed. Well, Aki and I did. Mateo managed to negotiate out of his crib and into our bed. We meant  to transfer him back to his room when he fell asleep. Instead we were woken up at around 4 am to someone  laughing and jumping around while yelling “ready, set, GO!!” (rye-yyy, thet, GO!!) and then proceeding to (not so gently) crash and land on whichever unsuspecting parent was closest. Good morning!

As you can see, that same little man seems to have expended all that energy. THIS is what happened during lunch today. hahahaha. I couldn’t believe it. He just started nodding off mid chew and then he was O-U-T. I was a little worried about getting him to nap today but he solved that.

And of course, you know me. I had to take some photos. Just too funny.toddler jet lag: toddler asleep at the tableIf you’re wondering what was served up for the midday meal, the kiddo gobbled down a peanut butter and fig jam sandwich along with a couple spinach pierogis. (AKA, what we had in the fridge/freezer).


UPDATE: that NAP lasted for 15 hours. Oh my, that boy was tired. I actually tried to wake him up at dinner time so that he could eat and play a little (hoping to offset some of that jet lag). Nope. I changed his clothes, moved him twice, even yelled out that I saw a BIG TRUCK. Nothing.

  1. Hee hee! Remind me to tell you about the time Kyle fell asleep on his grandpa’s tractor. (He wasn’t on it himself!) Well, never mind. I just told ya! Welcome home!

    • Oh Kyle! :) Of all places! Don’t you wish we had that ability?!

  2. Angela:

    These might be my favorite photos yet. I die a little over those lips. :)

    • and those eye lashes! I sat next to him during part of our road trip from Italy to Croatia and took like 20 photos of his eye lashes while he napped. haha. creepy much? …I mean what else was for me to do?! :)

      • I’ve always loved taking pictures of baby feet and hands. They’re some of my favorite pix. I did that with you, too. When you were a baby, I mean. That’d be weird otherwise, huh? ;-)

  3. Rachel:

    Adorable! I’m so happy you are back. We were really hoping Andrew would crash like that on our flight back from Cali. Didn’t happen. Were you able to transfer him anywhere or will he do his napping at the table? :-)

    • ha, I probably should have mentioned that! :) After his nap-time “photo shoot” he was safely transferred with success! :)

  4. Valerie:

    He makes my heart explode!

    • :) long overdue for an in-person heart explosion! :)

  5. kate:

    Adooooorable! I’ll never tire of kids’ ability to zonk out like this. So cute! Good to know you all arrived home safely. :)


    • We’re all home in one piece! Just need to get our body rhythms back! :) OOOh, isn’t your big move sooooon?! Looking forward to reading all the updates!

  6. Peanut butter and fig? Your son eats better than I do:)

    • He’s quite the foodie. ;) (as in, if it’s food…he’s game, ha). Sidenote: we always have fig jams and fig butters in the house because they are Croatian breakfast staples. :)

  7. welcome home!!
    check out that cute boy of yours, so funny!
    hope the jet lag isn’t too rough on you guys.
    thank you for your kind words the other day, meant a lot.

    • I watched him nod off right in front of me. So funny. Big hugs to you!

  9. This made me smile. My boy has never fallen asleep mid-meal, but I hope he does some day JUST so I can take pictures of it. What a cutie you have!
