Saturday Snapshot -- Sleeping Baby

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend of family member) have taken. Then leave a direct link to your post on West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.

We spent Friday babysitting for our niece's daughters, 4-year-old Caroline and 1-year-old Regan. As Regan was eating her lunch, she choked on a couple pieces of avocado. It scared her as we pulled her from the high chair and banged her on the back so she could breathe again. She let out a wail as the avocado dislodged, and we knew she wasn't choked any more. 
But even though she could breathe, she was scared and wouldn't stop crying. I finally rocked her to sleep, her lashes still clumped together with tears as she sucked on her thumb. 
Hope everyone is having a peaceful weekend.

Lovely photo!
For some reason when I read your blog (and others) in bloglovin' I can't comment.

Glad Regan is ok! My daughter chocked once and it was a very very scary thing to go through.

She looks adorable sleeping with her thumb in her mouth!

What a sweet baby and photo.

It is scary when little ones are choking and they don't know what we are doing.

I don't have a Saturday Snapshot, but wanted to stop by anyway.
