Professional Napper

Recently I started realizing how many pictures I have taken of Anna in a variety of sleeping positions and locations. She can fall asleep just about anywhere. I just love how little ones look when they sleep!

And you know what they say: "let sleeping babies lie..."
(or was it dogs???...Oh well, that's what I say!)




...whether it's at the water park, on the ottoman, on the garage floor, in the easy chair,

at the counter, reading Elmo, snuggled up to a dress-up skirt,

... during lunch, "comfortably" nestled into the baby hiking backpack, at Super Summer Theater, or in the middle of the night after being put to sleep in bed by daddy.
...but I don't know about following that rule,
when it comes to sleeping on the kitchen stool!

UPDATE: New position of the day!
Anna will be offering a seminar "the art of creative sleeping. " for any who are interested, contact her agent.

How Cute! Logan will not fall asleep unless he is in his bed. Once in a while in the carseat, but that is very rare. I remember Austin & Ally use to fall asleep at the table. I always thought it was so cute.

Sleeping kids are so cute, very cute picture of your little girl! Hopefully someday in the near future I will be able to post pictures of my baby sleeping everywhere. At the moment, she only sleeps in her crib. She has much difficulty falling asleep anywhere but there.

Thoe sleeping pictures are great. She is a great sleeper. That's awesome.

I'm glad Grandma was there so she wouldn't fall off the bar stool...
You were just like Anna and Justin both... you fell asleep sooo easily and you loved watermelon. I have a picture of you eating watermelon on the back patio in nearly nothing. Love, MOM

This made me smile and it made me think that she is just like her mama. I think you can sleep anywhere... class, train station, airport.

Gosh Julie, what do you feed this girlie? Elijah drank some kind of sedative at the dentists office, do you have some of that lying around?

I love sleeping kids! I think it's because that is the only time during the day that I can call my kids perfect little angels! :)

I love summer napping! It's such a special treat.

Melissa said...

That's too funny! I wish my kids still took naps!

That is so funny! My little beast of a boy doesnt sleep... at all it almost seems like!! But when he does... I love it! I too love the way babies look when sleeping. They look so peaceful!

Those pictures are so funny. I'm sad that I have no silly sleeping pictures of Caden... not becasue I haven't tried... he just doesn't sleep unless he's in his bed. He hasn't even fallen asleep in his high chair... it's so lame. Those pictures are pricelss... I especially love the barstool.

Hahaha! She is so adorable. How is that reaching over the arm of a chair and sleeping on the stool comfy?!

PookaB said...

She is definitely the best I have ever seen! Its like a cat - they will sleep in any position they can. Gotta love that little girl!

So cute! My baby brother Todd also had this unique talent. He could sleep anywhere at any time. Every night he would fall asleep on his way up the stairs, then I would wake him up and he would walk up 2 more and fall asleep again. I still remember that the staircase had 16 steps, because I would have to wake him up 8 times.

Lesley said...

So cute! She must really play hard to fall asleep in those positions! Luck you!

I have seen my kids sleep in the funniest positions but i think Anna is number one. That is so funny.

The Salazar Family said...

This is so funny! It cracked me up seeing all of those pictures!

Wow- I'm impressed! You're right sleeping babies are about the cutest things ever! My favorite is the barstool. How did she manage to stay asleep and not fall off? My parents have a picture of me sleeping while sitting upright on my little tricycle when I was about that age. Lincoln won't fall asleep unless he's able to lie flat on a soft surface.
Great post!
