Now THAT's a good idea Angie and you're right, you should be VERY proud - and good reading choice I might add! :)

They are so sweet. My kids are always bring me books to read. I don't know where they got it from but it makes me feel like I am going something right.

Those might be the two cutest bookworms I have ever seen.

Adorable! What better way to start off the WORDFUL Wednesday than with two kids and Dr. Suess. PERFECT!

Scary Mommy said...

Oh, my gosh- that is soooo cute!!

Jocasta said...

Octamom said...

Two of the cutest worms I've ever seen! And I like their literary choices!
Blessings!

Helene said...

SOOOOO adorable!!! I can see why your heart would swell with love watching them sleeping so peacefully next to their books!

WheresMyAngels said...

They are so cute and I just love that bright red hair. I wish my 4 year old was sleeping right now! Oh how I wish it.

Heather said...

What a couple of sweeties. You are very lucky that they obviously love to read.

Cristin said...

The hair is killing me!!

I have a couple pics of Graham sleeping with books... so cute..

Jill said...

Wow... what great photos. And Dr. Suess - we love those books!

Sleeping kids are my favorite! They can't talk back. :)

Connie said...

So cute Angie....oh the things I have to blog about tomorrow...they leave me speechless.

Threeundertwo said...

That Fox in Sox book makes me crazy near the end. My kids would always pick that one to read aloud.

Fabulous pictures. I think my 12 year old is asleep in her bed with a book right now. Such a wonderful thing to see.

Cecily R said...

They are just adorable ADORABLE. Times two.

Isaac did the same thing when he was their age. I loved it!

I love your WW idea by the way. I'm so IN!

Casey's trio said...

What a great way to start your Wordful Wednesdays! I love that you have more little readers in your nest:)

Are You Serious! said...

♥ Very cute! I love seeing kids read! :)

DYSFUNCTIONAL MOM said...

I love those pictures!

Jessica said...

Precious!!

Colleen said...

Young readers make my heart melt!!

Tabitha said...

Oh...those photos just made my day. Makes me consider that having a little boy someday might not be all that bad afterall. How sweet!

Shannon said...

Love those books too! Too sweet.

mannequin said...

In THIS case, I'm pretty wordless.
Just "oohhh..."
How precious is that?

Laurie said...

They pick out good books! Wonder what they are dreaming about. So cute that they are BOTH asleep with books. Great shots.

Jacki said...

How cute! Emma likes to read after we've put her to bed, so she's always falling asleep with books.

Nothing wrong with being a bookworm!

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

Love these little red heads! I can't believe they fell asleep with books!

I especially LOVE the superman Cape!!

Elizabeth said...

So cute...and getting started early with the reading!

Kimmers said...

What a great picture - I think you're raising some book lovers there!!

Thanks so much for your comment on my last post... what a wonderful thing to say. It completely made my night so I thought I should let you know!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Hey Angie. I love your pics. And I am so happy to be participating in this with you. This will be my first time participating in a group thing like this. I often like to just post about my family with a pic and words, when I am not sharing a recipe, so this gives me that opportunity plus there is a community feel.

Kim said...

That's so sweet! I love book worms!

Neil said...

Adorable photos! I know exactly what you mean! I've been happy for the past couple of weeks because the girls have started flipping through their books and babbling like they're reading aloud - and books are now the number one thing they "fight" over. While they're not actually reading yet, I finally feel like I'm doing a good job teaching them something.

Kelly said...

Aww! My WordFUL is up!

Aubrey said...

Look at those beautiful sleeping angels! Great WordFul Weds!!

Kacey Randolph said...

Precious! Precious! Great WordFUL Wednesday - so much fun!

Munchkins and Music said...

I forgot about wordful wednesday so I did wordless, but I did write words with my picture. So I guess I can do wordful too! Next time hopefully I'll remember!!

Lindsay said...

Love the concept of using Mr. Linky for Wordful Wednesday! I didn't know you were doing this until I checked your blog today - I'll put your link on my blog next Wed for sure...for some reason my computer is not recognizing the picture, only the link...or it could just be me - THAT'S probably more the problem.

Oh - and I only put my kids to bed with books (not toys) - I love the idea of falling asleep to books!!

Mekhismom said...

These photos are too cute. I keep a book in my son's crib to keep him entertained when he wakes up. Sometimes I hear him in there "reading" to himself before he cries to be taken out of the crib. I have a photo if I find it maybe I will post too.

the schirano triplets said...

what sweet pictures! i love that you changed it to wordful wednesday :)

GoteeMan said...

that is totally sweet... both my boys are avid readers and have been since they were small - smart as a whip, too...

Veggie Mom said...

Dr. Seuss--one of my faves! I still have several of those books memorized. When College Girl had recurring ear infections, we'd sit out on the porch swing in the dark and I'd recite Dr. Seuss and Madeleine!

mommaof4wife2r said...

love that little guys red hair! makes me smile. and you have to be proud when the book makes him happy! yeah for you!

Shannon said...

Adorable!!!!

Tash said...

double pleasure!!! And smart too!

Debra said...

Oh so cute!!! What is around the little guys neck that is red in the top picture?

My twins fall asleep with books every night. I am so excited because they would not sit still until jhust recently for books

Jonny's Mommy said...

i'm so glad you launched this. I wanted to do something like this. I hate wordless wednesday, probably because I just ramble.

I love these photos. I'm going to check out your blog more to find out how old they are. They look about the age of my son.

Also, hopped here from My Chaos My Bliss.

Mama's Losin' It said...

Adorable!!!

Mark and Kiss said...

I love the photos Angie! Your boys are adorable! It also shows that you have passes on your passion for good books. :)

Sydney said...

So, so cute! I love it! My little guy always tries to sneak in extra books at bedtime. I'm sure I'll wake up to this one of these days!

Tiff said...

There's something for you on my blog.
And as always, the photos are adorable. Gah! I can't wait!

Jaysi said...

I love that he is reading in his superhero get-up! Too cute for words. I am a book lover myself, so this is nirvana to me!

Kristin said...

Ahhhh sleeping kids...nothing better.

girlytwins said...

That's my favorite way to fall asleep too :) So stinkin cute!!

Zen Ventures said...

Oh he is so adorable! My daughter loves that book too!

Tash said...

hey if you see this, I can't figure out how to the code into a post. I can put it on the side but how do you put it in your post?? thanks

Tash said...

oh I got it!! thanks I put your button there.

Tracy said...

I agree - I LOVE it when my girls read.
I had a LONG day & when I read your blog at 10pm - I thought I'd try to do the Wordful Wednesday. I could not figure out how to copy your button thing - I am so frustrated - hopefully next time.
blessings.

Melanie said...

Just poppin in and loved reading..cute family!!

Taya said...

One of those "kodak moments". and might I add they have great taste in books. We are totally Dr. Suess fans!

raising4boys said...

I just love those photos. I have a few of those shots myself. In my opinion it's much better that they are falling asleep with books instead of in front of the T.V.

Cherry's Jubilee said...

Ahhhh what cuties...it is never too early to teach them good habits. My son loves to read. cherry

Jyl at Mommy Gossip said...

These are simply amazing! TENDER!

My most favorite picture of all time is one my husband, unbeknown to me, took of me reading to my 3 month old (who is now 7). We were both looking down at the book. My son looked totally into it. It was so sweet. The most awesome part is that he has turned out to a TOTAL BOOK WORM. Can't get enough of reading. I should search for that pic and post it. It was one of those rare candid shots you prize! And the fact that it describe him makes it all the better. :)

Cecilia said...

How sweet! It makes me happy to see kids reading!
We love Dr Suess at our house.

Connie said...

Okay, I did it, and now I have to do another one...it's been a looooong day.

Susie said...

Gosh they are so beautiful! You are one lucky mama! I can see why your heart is swelling! I love Fox in Socks!

les_mason_curt said...

What sweet, sweet boys.... love me some red-heads!

Genny said...

Dr. Suess is one of my favorites. Too cute, Angie!

Live.Love.Eat said...

These were all great Angie. I enjoyed checking them all out, except some did not have a picture or even a post for that day. Maybe they wanted to but then didn't get a chance?

Honey Mommy said...

Awesome!

I am totally going to participate next week. I didn't really enjoy worldless wednesday very much because I like to tell about my pictures!

Plus my pictures tend to be less "artsy" and more real life, know what I mean?

Nicole said...

Your boys are so cute. Wow, your a blogging machine love your worless wednesday, I'll have to remember it for next week. Thanks so much for getting in touch with my SIL Sheleen about the monoamniotic twins. I know it was very comforting for her to get in touch with someone who's been through the same thing. We went and saw her twins last week at the hospital, they are adorable.

Emily said...

Swwwwweet photos!

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

Oh they are so sweet. Can not go wrong with Dr. Suess!

Tiffany said...

So cute. So cute. So cute!

MoziEsmé said...

Reminds me of my childhood - that was my favorite way to fall asleep!

And good books - Fox in Socks drives me nuts, but I love the Tooth book.

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

They are SO sweet!
Sorry didn't get this done, the week went TOO fast!

armyfamilyok said...

Love the fact that they're asleep with their books. That's just too cute!! Kids and books is a blessing!!

Josh and Betsie said...

awesome

Bonnie the Boss said...

Your blog rocks and you can tell by how many comments you have. I wish I could figure out how to increase mine. I need to be more interesting.
Anywho, I have a couple of mine who can't sleep without at least a dozen books. It does warm the heart a little.

Rebecca said...

Be still my heart! Absolutely precious.

Kristen Andrews said...

that is priceless! Love those pics!
