This baby was so excited to meet Santa, he couldn't stay awake

Sleeping Baby Gets Adorable Photo with Sleeping Santa

He sees you when you're sleeping -- and then he takes a nap.

Donnie Walters, the owner of Donnie's Daddy Daycare, took his 6-month-old son, Zeke, to a department store to meet Santa for the first time on Nov. 26. That can really tire a kid out.

Zeke fell asleep in the line while waiting to meet old Saint Nick in in Evansville, Indiana. Luckily, Santa didn't mind and had the good sense to know that you should never wake a sleeping baby.
