Wordful Wednesday-Sleeping

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can't seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you'd like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to "capture" my 7 Clown Circus button (below and on the left) or simply hyperlink to my site, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

LINK TITLE







For the past few weeks we've tried out having a prompt IF and only IF you would like to use it.  I hereby  give notice that I am throwing in the towel.  I'm terrible about think up and sticking to a prompt.  No more prompts......just your photos........your words.......on whatever topic you chose.  Just like originally.




This could very possibly be the 43rd time I've told you all how much I love to see children sleeping. I'm sorry I'm redundant occasionally. I hope it's only occasionally, anyway.  I love to see all children sleeping, but especially babies. They just seem so angelic. And beautiful. My babies are not quite babies anymore, but I still delight in watching them sleep. Especially together.

Who could blame you for saying it again and again? There is nothing as peaceful and sweet as a sleeping child! :)

Momisodes said...

They really are so sweet when they're sleeping. So precious. I never grow tired of seeing my little girl fast asleep. It's the only time she's still and not moving a mile a minute! :)

Stina said...

beautiful picture. i also like to watch my lil' guy sleeping. he is so peaceful. he still smiles sometimes and my mother always told me that angels are whispering to him when he smiles in his sleep. he turned 5 this past week. happy WW and take care.

Honey Mommy said...

I love it when they are asleep! Partially because they are cute, and partially because they aren't causing any trouble!

Kacey R. said...

That picture melts my heart.

Milk and Honey Mommy said...

Angie,

I too love watching my children sleep, especially after a very long day. Actually, it warms my heart. What I really enjoy is watching my baby (soon three) asleep in my arms. My oldest don't do that as much anymore.

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

I, too, love it when they're sleeping. Lately my toddler has been letting me lay with her to put her to sleep. It has been absolute heaven to put her to sleep again like I did when she was a baby.

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

oh they are so sweet! i love it too! i keep saying, I'm going to call ours babies for the rest of their lives! It might be a little embarassing for them when they're in high school or college or getting married, but they're so cute and they're growing up too fast=)!

Jamie said...

This melts my heart!
They are so precious ;)

Life with Kaishon said...

Jamie said...

Melissa said...

That's also when I love my kids the most LOL

Angela said...

I think sleep was invented to remind you not to kill your kids while they are awake! Very precious.

Rob said...

That picture is super cute. They look so peaceful sleeping.

Happy WW!

Mark and Kiss said...

Absolutely precious Angie. They are getting so big....sleeping babes, one of my fav's too!

With kids as cute as these you can say it everyday if you like!

Robin said...

What cuties. They always look so innocent when they're sleeping, don't they ;)?

Postcards from Wildwood said...

So sweet - and I love it when they still 'suckle' in their sleep, even though they're long past the suckling stage! That's a lovely photo of your little ones, Angie.

Stefany said...

I hear ya... sleeping babes are the best.

cat said...

Angie, they are still your cute babies! Always.

Sera said...

They are so sweet! And they do look so angelic. I think when they're sleeping it makes them look more like babies, too. When Kaylee sleeps, she gets some of those same looks on her face as when she was a newborn, and it just takes me back.

Jennifer said...

I love it too. Especially when it is my baby sleeping. LOL

Simply Mommy said...

There is nothing more precious than sleeping babies...or toddlers...or kids! :)

Allison said...

I love watching sleeping kids (especially babies), too! It is the most innocent moments. Have a great day.

MamaJoss said...

They are just so perfect when they sleep -- could stare at them for hours like we did when they were newborns...then they wake up and it's back to ripping your hair out - hehe :)

Peterson Family said...

Watching children sleep is better than anything on television! It's so sweet and peaceful!

Jennifer said...

Absolutely beautiful.

You are a brave woman. I love to see kids sleeping, but am terrified of waking them with the flash!

Night Owl Mama said...

Awww they are too darn cute! that's when boys look the best Sleeping!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

I agree they are sweet when they are sleeping. I've often wanted to catch my son sleeping but worry about waking him up. Now that would be tragic!

Elaine A. said...

Passed ou cold! Love it! And yes, children and babies sleeping is quite delightful, for many reasons! ; )

Live.Love.Eat said...

I love it. I know what you mean, if I had another one and saw them sleeping like that it would just melt my heart. Instead, I just act like the 2nd child.

Aimee said...

That is such a sweet picture! I love moments like that!

Jen said...

there really is nothing like the beauty of a sleeping child.

vanessa said...

It's the best feeling in the world--to watch your children sleep...I just wish my daughter still took naps!

Justine said...

Oh Angie, the twins are just gorgeous and look so peaceful sleeping. I bet they're not quite that angelic when they're awake though!

Justine :o )

Kara @ His, Hers and Ours said...

I never get sick of watching kids sleep, either...only I never think of getting it on camera. Good work - and seriously - sleeping together - that's just too darn precious.

parentingBYdummies said...

I wish I could catch a pic of the dudes sleeping, but for some reason all three of them sleep with the covers over their faces. Weird, right? Best part is so does their dad!

Lula! said...

I, too, love watching my kids sleep. We had Libbey in bed with us two nights ago, because she was having stomach issues at bedtime...and we'd rather her puke on us than upstairs in her room, all by herself.

(She didn't puke, thankfully.)

When I finally climbed into bed, she'd been asleep for a few hours--so she was all warm and her hair was splayed on the pillow. I think I kissed her 10 times before grabbing her hand and falling asleep with it.

Precious.

p.s. The red hair wins--ALWAYS!

Swirl Girl said...

I have hours of sleeping baby on video. It's so calming and peaceful. I know it's weird, but I like that you can tell when they're in REM sleep. And I love to watch them drool ever so sweetly. And don't get me started on the whole sleeping-with-binky-suck thing...how cool is that?

Threeundertwo said...

What a sweet sweet picture! I love how twins have a different sense of space than other siblings. No hesitation to share eachother's breath.

Kristin said...

they are so darling when they are asleep aren't they? makes the waking hours bearable ;)

Mama Kat said...

Sleeping kids are the best!! Unless they're kicking you in the back...then it's not so great.

Grand Pooba said...

I agree, there's nothing more peaceful than a sleeping baby, whatever the age!

Are You Serious! said...

♥ So my favorite time as well!!! They're adorable!

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

They look like a couple of tuckered out puppies. Cute little guys.

JamericanSpice said...

I love watching children sleeping too. Esp babies.

I often wonder...what are they dreaming of :)
