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!

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. 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.

  4. Honey Mommy says

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

  5. That picture melts my heart.

  6. A Family Completed... says

  13. Milk and Honey Mommy says


    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.

  14. Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting says

    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.

  15. Naturally Caffeinated Family says

    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=)!

  16. This melts my heart!
    They are so precious ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Life with Kaishon says

    They are so precious as they sleep. They will always be your babies in your heart, right? Wonderful post!

  18. They are precious. There is something so innocent about sleeping children.

  19. OMG what a great pic! They are adorable! I love to just sit and watch my boys sleep, I almost followed your lead with a sleeping pic!

  20. That is an adorable picture!

  21. That's also when I love my kids the most LOL
    Great pic.

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

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

    Happy WW!

  24. Mark and Kiss says

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

  25. Casey's trio says

    Double the sleeping cuteness for sure! Something about the peace and quiet that make a sleeping kiddo so darn cute ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. AH! so cute! I love watching sleeping kids! My now teen is "like" don't watch me that freaks me out!! WHATEVER!

  27. And how very cute and angelic they are, for sure!! =)

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

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

  30. Postcards from Wildwood says

    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.

  31. I just love that they're all snuggled together!!!

  32. They are so precious when they sleep, aren't they?

  33. The OmniCouple says

    They are too sweet for words. Great photo of your sleeping babies. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. 4 Lettre Words says

    Nothing sweeter than sleeping babes!

  41. Angie, I love, love, love that photo! And I'm right there with you; sleeping pictures are the best. Heart-warming and comforting.

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

  43. Angie, they are still your cute babies! Always.

  44. 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.

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

  46. Simply Mommy says

    There is nothing more precious than sleeping babies…or toddlers…or kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  55. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  56. Peterson Family says

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

  57. Absolutely beautiful.

  61. Night Owl Mama says

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

  62. Renรฉe aka Mekhismom says

    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!

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

  71. Kristina P. says

    They look so peaceful!

  72. Live.Love.Eat says

    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.

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

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

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

  76. 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

  83. parentingBYdummies says

    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!

  84. Amber Page Writes says

  86. HeartsMakeFamilies says

    Thats a great pictures.

    Please stop by I left you something on my blog.

  87. 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.


    p.s. The red hair wins–ALWAYS!

  88. Swirl Girl says

    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?

  89. Threeundertwo says

    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.

  90. they are so darling when they are asleep aren't they? makes the waking hours bearable ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

  92. Grand Pooba says

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

  93. Are You Serious! says

    โ™ฅ So my favorite time as well!!! They're adorable!

  94. Adrian's Crazy Life says

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

  95. JamericanSpice says

    I love watching children sleeping too. Esp babies.

    I often wonder…what are they dreaming of ๐Ÿ™‚
