A Wonderful Discovery - The Sleeping Beauties

Mom had this brilliant idea to go back into our archives looking for pictures of our smiling faces for World Smile Day.  We discovered that Mitch doesn't smile very much and we also discovered this post from May 8, 2007. It was never published!

This is just as it was written:

Mom loves to take pictures of us when we are sound asleep and dead to the world. Somehow she and dad get a big charge out of this! They were watching TV last night and dad had the volumn up a little too loud for my taste so this is what I decided to do so I could catch a few zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's! Can you see that I'm covering my ears?
Mom and dad laughed themselves silly! Here I am again. It's getting warmer now and mom hasn't taken the fuzzy stuff off of the beds yet so to keep myself cooler I like to lay on my back. A girl never gets privacy around here!
Even Mitch isn't spared! The camera snaps away while he's trying to sleep too. He doesn't seem to mind as much as I do though! He has such busy days that when he sleeps he just "dies"! Mom and dad were really hooting about this picture! It looks like Mitch is smelling something bad - yea, himself!

Here's another one of Mitch. He gets himself so tired that he slides off the bed! It's really sort of comical to watch. One minute he's totally on the bed and the next time you glance at him he's only half on the bed!
Check this one out. He totally fell off the bed in this picture! hehehehe
Awwwwwwwwwwwww - now this is a good one! Doesn't the baby look peaceful!

I do have to say, the little dude tuckers me out some days more than others and I sorta just "die" to!

*****************************
I'm only 8 years old in these pictures and we've only had Mitch for a couple of months at this point!  Was my brother really that small at one time?!

That was sure fun taking a walk down Memory Lane!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Penny and Patches said...

You two get into some really cute sleeping positions! I, Patches like to sleep with my head hanging over the side of Mom's bed or 1/2 way on and 1/2 way off of my bed! Sometimes I fall off on to the floor and make a big "thud"! Mom doesn't think that's so funny in the middle of the night!

Happy weekend!

Aire-hugs,
Patches

We kind of unfold as we sleep. We start off curled in a ball and as we get more comfy we start stretching out till we sometimes fall off the bed.

scotsmad said...

We enjoyed that. It gave us BIG smiles for the day.

You're parents are lucky, SHE says, because whenever our camera does it's little turn-on music, we jump up and run to her. So SHE misses out on 'cute' sleeping shots.

XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella
