Xavier asleep

xavierasleep
It was after nine o’ clock in the evening and everyone apart from Hugo and Xavier were out. So having done Hugo yesterday, I crept into Xavier’s bedroom, pulled back the curtains and drew him in the fading light. The black lump next to his arm is ‘Matoki’ the monkey, one of his bed-time toys. Have a look at this picture to see what Flo looked like when she was a baby.

absolutely gorgeous, nothing like feeling all gooey over them when asleep, and ready to kill them at times when awake.
None of my children looked alike and I dont think my grand children do either.

You've really captured his relaxation; the way his chin is sunk down into his neck, and his mouth loose ... very peaceful.

I have noticed that your family all resembles each other...Don't know about you as you don't do drawings of yourself very often...This is so peaceful and you caught the tone of the evening light on him beautifully!
