This week we asked: What does sleep look like?

(Read more about sleep in this week’s articles on the theme.)

From Christa: Ella’s (born at 29 weeks) First Night Home.

Christa blogs at The Good Letdown.

From Andrea: Ever since birth, she’s always looked most peaceful in daddy’s arms.

Shannon says, “My daughter has never been the type to self soothe and she’s always fought sleeping, but one day recently she was very annoyed at me and went into her room to calm down. When I went to check on her, this is how I found her. I guess she really needed the nap.”

Shannon blogs at Pineapples & Artichokes

Valerie says, “The first picture I have of all three co-sleeping. (Unfortunately, they all had the flu and that’s why they’re all zonked out and snuggled together.)”

Valerie blogs at Momma In Progress

From Cynthia: Cats make great pillows…

…and so do little brothers.

Cynthia blogs at The Hippie Housewife

From Lindsey: Sleeping skin to skin on a hot day. Pure bliss.

Lindsey blogs at An Unschooling Adventure

Jenn says, “I was blessed with a great sleeper, but he’s also quite the blanket-hog.”

Dionna says, “I’ve woken up snuggled next to this face for almost four years, and it still makes me smile every morning.”

May all your dreams be as colorful as the world around you.

From Lauren: Big yawn from Baby Alrik.

Even a king-size mattress has started to feel a little cramped now that there are four in the bed. In this picture, Mama has left to take the picture, and Dad has rolled onto the floor!

Momma Jorje is a sucker for a baby that will sleep on her shoulder (even if they do get heavier)!

From Christine: Jesse believes that we should ‘sleep when we’re dead!’ Always fighting sleep, but doesn’t he just look like an angel once asleep.

Jesse’s mom, Christine, blogs at African Babies Don’t Cry

Kristin says, “These are my 3.5 year old twins, asleep in my lap in the ‘double football hold’ after nursing down for nap (one of my favorite times of the day). Works like a charm even now — though I always plop them into their beds after this!”

    Charise – I totally thought Lindsey’s sleeping baby in the middle was yours!

    I didn’t submit one because my kids don’t sleep!

    There is nothing better, cuter, cozier, and snugglier than seeing all these pictures of sleeping kids. <3 <3 <3.

    I love all of the sleeping babies. Even after the toughest, most challenging days, all of our babes put on their angel faces when they go to sleep.

    I love all the wonderful pictures. 🙂 I know my son is absolutely adorable. I especially liked the one where little brother is being used as a pillow.
