Sleeping Baby Always Wakes Up Smiling

We all know the saying, “Let sleeping dogs lie.” But most of us would agree that “Let a sleeping baby lie” makes even more sense. In fact, most of us would agree that it’s the first rule of parenting. And that’s because it’s a toss up what you’re going to get when a sleeping baby wakes. Some babies always wake up crying. Some want to be picked up right away. Others still are content to lie in their beds and entertain themselves for a while. But this baby takes the cake.

While I was always careful NOT to wake my kids, I’m pretty sure that if any of my children woke up like this baby does – I would have woken them up every five minutes just to see their reaction. This sleeping baby is so happy to wake up, but somehow, she just can’t seem to keep her eyes open.

Little Yerin was six months old when her father took this video. He claims that she always woke up with a smile – especially when she saw her mom or dad smiling back. But on this day, although her parents were hoping for a smile, what they got is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!

Even though she wakes up with a smile, she just can’t seem to keep her eyes open. However, that doesn’t stop her from waking up again, grinning, then rolling over and sleeping some more. Over and over again.

If you need a smile today or just a little hope that not all babies cry incessantly when they wake up, then you won’t want to miss this precious sleeping baby and her reaction to waking up to her mom and dad’s faces. Enjoy!
