Pets are a big part of many families, a special companion that loves everyone! One family pet has taken up the job of supervising nap time in the most adorable way.
A Warm Welcome
"Man's best friend" has always been the best way to describe a dog. Their lovable and loyal nature makes it hard to ever be mad at them! In the Shyba family, their family dog Theo has taken on the responsibility of the children's nap time from a very young age.
Rock A By Baby... and Puppy
Jessica Shyba, matriarch of the family, got little Theo from a rescue at only 7 months old. One day, when rocking her son Beau to sleep, Theo decided to curl up and join in on some much needed nap time!
Cue The AWWWW
Has there ever been a more perfect pair? Beau and Theo look like something staged in a magazine!
Partners in Crime
Ever since then, Theo has joined in on all of Beau's naps. Cuddling up with his human brother is second nature to the gentle pup. Jessica started photographing nap time as a way to share with her long-distance relatives how her family was growing via her person blog, "Momma's Gone City."
The images became a hit with both her family and then the internet as a viral sensation! Puppies seem to rule the internet but add in an adorable toddler and you've got internet gold! How could you not love the peaceful looks on their adorable faces!?
Their popularity grew so much that Jessica even published a book! "Naptime with Theo and Beau" chronicled the best friends nap time moments.
A Growing Boy
As Beau grew, so did Theo but the nap time tradition remained the same!
A New Addition
A few years after the nap tradition began, The Shyba's welcomed a baby girl, Evangeline, to the family. Theo greeted her with open paws!
A Curious Pup
Theo was definitely intrigued by this new little girl that entered his world. But seeing the adorable pup watch Evangeline sleep is too cute for words!
Three's A Crowd
As little Evangeline grew, Jessica knew that getting her on a proper nap schedule was important. The baby girl eventually became the most adorable third wheel to Theo and Beau's snoozing tradition... making for even more precious photos of the Shyba kids and their furry-faced friend.
A Sibling Bond
Beau even rests his head on little Evangeline during nap time and we can't forget Theo curled up to be the furry little spoon.
Picture Perfect Moments
Jessica, of course, sticks around during nap time to not only capture the beautiful moments but make sure everyone stays safe and sound.
Cuddles For Everyone
Beau, being a true little gentleman, holds his sister's hand during nap time and keeps her close by. She doesn't seem to mind a wet dog nose resting on her precious head.
A Lifetime of Love
It's easy to see why all three of this charming trifecta looks forward to naps each day! Plus in a house full of children and pets, a moment of silence is absolutely golden.
It's hard not to get the warm and fuzzies looking through these peaceful moments of slumber. Children grow up so quickly that it's important to the take the time to cherish them while they are young.
