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™‚

    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™‚

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

    They are absolutely cute! Enjoy it, as they get older, the ONLY time they're cute will be alseep! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    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 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.

    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=)!

    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!

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

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

    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.

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

    Sera says

    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.

    Simply Mommy says

    After seeing you post, I just had to follow suit. I truly love pictures on children sleeping. They are so sweet and peaceful!!!

    I LOVE to watch my daughter sleep. There is just something so pure, peaceful and innocent about a sleeping child.

    Awww…so sweet! Are these guys twins? My twins are going on 8 years old already! Have a great day…I always enjoy your blog!!

    Always our babies….and I think what you love is the peaceful part of sleeping kiddos ๐Ÿ™‚

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

    MamaJoss says

    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™‚

    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!

    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.

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

    Justine says

    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!

    ::sigh:: I NEVER get tired of sleeping baby pictures. I'll be looking for you 44th time posting of the same!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Happy WW!

    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.

    Jenni Jiggety says

    That is an ADORABLE picture, Angie!

    Sleeping children are precious. And QUIET which pretty much rocks, too…

    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!

    Lula! says

    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!

    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?

    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.
