on St. Pattys Eve ;-)
Arie Joseph Pater
decided to sleep from 1030-7!
Holy Cow whos son is this!?!?! 
I watched the monitor at 5, 6 and 7 in shock he was still sleeping haha
Now this may never happen again [at least for a while]
but let me tell you, I will take it and be happy with what he gives

we celebrated Aries first St. Pattys day by wearing green
reading books, napping
