London, ON, December 2006 [Click to embiggen]

I love when our kids sleep. I admit I like to stare at them when they do.

Your turn: What's going on inside his head?

Hey Carmi!

Hope you are well! I love it when you get these shots of your kids! Moments like these are priceless whe you can just watch and record.

Take care!

Shelli said...

I know I haven't been here in a long time, for that I'm sorry. I love your word "embiggen"!

MorahMommy said...

He's dreaming of the big soccer game he'll play in the school yard, tomorrow, the video game he'll play when he wakes up...or playing with his puppy!

You do realize this is the only time our youngest is ever still?

That's really not true...how many times have gone in to check on him and he's at the opposite end of the bed!

Gosh,he is delicious!
:-)
From a very unprejudice Mother!

Awareness said...

he's dreaming of his first trip down the waterslide this summer...

i've posted my WW photo.... AND while i was posting it, your beautiful face appeared on my TV! How serendipitous is that???

Great interview Carmi.

Pooch said...

Sweet peace.

Carletta said...

Hey Dad, take a picture of me running and jumping in the swimming pool...Hey Dad, my ice cream cone's dripping...Hey Dad, look at the fireflys...
Hmmmm....summer vacation....it won't be long....hmmmm...not very long...

spwriter said...

Great photo. I wonder what he's dreaming?

Just joined the WW parade for the first time. However, I seem to have fallen through a hole in the time-space continuum. My photo is clearly anchored in autumn.

Robert said...

Well since it was taken in December, he must be thinking, "I hope Santa brings me that new bike."

BNS said...

Visions of sugarplums?? I always loved watching my kids sleep, too. Happy WW.

Peter pan when are you coming to take me? Happy WW! :)

Urban Thought said...

How peaceful.

tundratantrum said...

Aww...so cute. I have lots of pics of my son sleeping. It's usually the only time he doesn't try to make goofy faces when I take his picture.

christine said...

Minkydo said...

Adorable. I used to watch my son sleep as well. It was so peaceful.

Kate said...

This is a beautiful picture... at a wild guess he's either dreaming about sport, toys or food! Thats what I dream about hee hee :)

dKaye.com said...

excellent picture and filter effects. and yes, they are so angelic when asleep - and such devils when awake. but we love them just the same. ;)

Kelly C said...

I also love to watch my girls sleep. So peaceful. - zzzz...what can I get into when I wake up. They think I am sleeping, but I am scheming...:)

Mary Kate said...

great picture! I love watching Becca sleep.

Diana said...

Cute picture...if his dreams are like mine they are too crazy to report!

Sassy said...

Awesome shot. I have one of my daughter sleeping. I often wonder what goes on through her head while she sleeps. Great capture. Happy WW!!

Hey Teach! said...

what a beautiful picture...so peaceful and secure

Keri said...

Kids are great when they are asleep... it's usually the only time they are quiet ;)

Kelly said...

So beautiful. I love the dark fan of lashes against cheeks.

meeya said...

Heather said...

That is so perfect and precious. Sleeping boys have an air of innocence they often seem to be missing when awake--at least that is the case with my own.

Kimberly said...

That's an amazing shot. I must admit, I love to watch my kids sleep too - so much peace. I've never thought to photograph them though. Now I will!

Happy WW!

R. Sherman said...

I love it when our kids, especially our boys, sleep.

Because they're not breaking anything!

Cheers.

A Whole Lot of Nothing said...

Gorgeous!

Lori's Light Extemporanea said...

Awww....I think I have more pictures of my children asleep than anything else (especially the twins).

I think he's flying through the air on his own power and surveying his kingdom.

Thanks for the visit!

Bela said...

Happy WW!

Nodin's Nest said...

He's planning his next great adventure!

the160acrewoods said...

i love pictures of babe's sleeping. when mine actually sleep I think it's the most peaceful thing I've seen!
Happy WLW! :)

re: the obit... unless you're desperate to get rid of the apartment, I'd probably ignore the request.. just pretend it didn't happen lol... don't usually do that sort of thing, or unless these people are known for their artful social skills (I know a few people who are naturally like that), than you take that into consideration.
HTH's!

Shannon said...

I have so many pictures of my children sleeping. I just love to look at them when they are so still and peaceful, the rest of the time they are such balls of energy.

marcia said...

Oh Carmi he is precious I always loved to watch ours sleep too
" Dad why are you watching me? Dad ? Dad? I guess you can't hear me? Must have something to do w/ age -- I wonder if you stop dreaming when you get older? I hope not --"

missus.mint said...

Tink *~*~* said...

I love this puppy! If only this wasn't a dream... *wakes up* Hey Dad, can I have a puppy? puh-LEEEEZE????

Angelic.

Vered said...

He looks so peaceful, that I'm guessing he's in deep sleep and nothing is going inside his head except for recharging for the next day.
Thanks for sharing. :)

Liss said...

Thanks for stopping by Purs n' Snorts. Glad to make you smile ;) That is a cute child! He looks so relaxed, I think there's not a thought in his head. He's so peaceful.

Beckaboo said...

I, too, love to watch my kiddos sleep.

He's thinking...."Ahhh.... Spring.... Riding my bike..... Swinging.... Rollerskating.... Skateboards.... Soccer.... Baseball...."

Blessings, Beckie :o)

Robyn Jones said...

Monster Trucks.

Thanks for sharing, Carmi!!

Not Afraid to Use It said...

I am so glad to know I am not the only one who stares at their kids when they sleep. I just can't stop myself, either. I love this picture.

Amy-Happy Momma said...

Is it my turn yet? :D

What is going through his mind?
Hmm...Maybe he is reviewing his day or dreaming of his next fishing trip...

Happy WW

Maya said...

Great shot. happy WW.

storyteller said...

Thanks for visiting and leaving such a wonderful comment on my 200th Post at Small Reflections. Once I’d written it I wasn’t sure I should share it as ‘Wordless Wednesday’ …(since it’s anything but), however I wanted to acknowledge all my ‘virtual’ friends and acquaintances and figured only those who had time (and/or cared) would do more than look at the image ;--)

This photo is preciously priceless! Who knows what little boys dream of?

I enjoyed the 'link' to your 'signs' photo too ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Lyn said...

kids are at their best when sleeping :)

Nicole said...

That is cute :D!
Beautiful catch!

Happy WWW!

Daisy said...

That is such a sweet photo!

Regina said...

What a beautiful picture!
I agree I love to watch my grandbaby sleep, they are so sweet, innocent, and carefree!

Green Eyed Girl said...

That is so precious! Great shot.

YellowRose said...

Beautiful photo!

Ok, he's dreaming Guitar Hero...

Blue, blue, green, red, yellow, red, blue, red, green...Rock on!

Susan said...

What an amazing picture! What amazing adventures are going on behind that peaceful exterior?

I stare at my kids when they sleep too. Even though they're so big now (12 and 10), I can see their baby faces when they're asleep.

Beverly said...

Beautiful photo of a beautiful son.

Denise's Parenting Teens Blog said...

I miss watching my oldest sleeping. She used to always have her mouth wide open, lol.

Will said...

I wish I could still sleep like that!

Happy WW!

MamaArcher said...

what a great photo..sweet dreams!

secet agent mama said...

Carmi, when I look at this photo I just see pure innocence and love! Thanks for sharing it!

Indigo Children said...

They return to angels in their sleep--no matter how old they get.

I sometimes watch my thirteen-year old when she sleeps--just to remind myself of her innocence. Her rolling eyes and sarcastic mouth disappear into a baby's face once again--long eyelashes rest on rosy cheeks, eyebrows relaxed, mouth still.

I should do it more often so I don't forget!

Christina said...

Ahhh, so serene and innocent. I love to watch my girl sleep.

Rayne said...

Beautiful photo. I was reminded of The Neverending Story when I saw it. Do you think he is dreaming of riding big, white, fluffy, dragons?

Jenelle said...

Awesome picture--I think I'll go take a nap now. :)

Thanks for stopping by to see my naked boy! Happy Wordless Wednesday.

carrie & troy keiser said...

Thanks for dropping by and checking out my WW. Love the picture of the sleeping child! I can relate!
As for his thought.... "I'm NOT tired!"

Jenty said...

I love it, it's so peaceful.

Moon Rani said...

Whatever he's dreaming, he's dreaming he's the best at doing it - - great photo!

The Nature Nut said...

He looks like he's dreaming of something really peaceful - like swinging on a swing that hangs from the strong limb of a great big old tree. Beautiful picture!

lissa said...

Stunning photo of a stunning photographee. What's he thinking?

"hope that Dad's got the camera put away for the night....coz the last thing I want is a picture of me asleep blasted on the internet...zzzzzzzzzzzzzz"

;-)

Some of my favorite photos are of my boys asleep as well. I see I'm not alone; maybe a coffee table book in the making, Señor Levy?

Cynthia Blue said...

So very peaceful :)

Blog Bandwagon said...

What a sweet pic! I took one similar of my daughter recently but her cat was next to her.
Thanks for coming by my blog today!

Michelle Potter said...

I'm not good at coming up with captions, but I did want to say what a sweet picture this is!

sandy's notes said...

I have two boys, grown now, 20 and 21. When they were little, all they seemed to think about was how they could save the world. Their imagination and their world of warriors gave me lessons unimaginable. I love this photo, it brings me back to those days of little boys and the life of imaginations.

Kimmie said...

I think he's dreaming of "Snips and Snails, and Puppy Dog Tails".

My Mother always said that when children sleep, they play with the Angels. I truly believe they do.

My Dear Daughter is almost 24. She works nights, yesterday she came over after work and went to sleep in my bed. I peeked in on her, brushed her hair from her forehead and just gazed at how peaceful and beautiful she looked. Once again she appeared to be that very small child I stared at so many years ago. It was an unforgetable moment for me.
Thank You for sharing your son with us. :-)
Blessings,
Kimmie

Lisa Milton said...

MileHighDivaCyn said...

This image is incredible... just plain good, Carmi!

P.S. I love the link to "Caption This" for people new to your blog!!! Hilarious! "... you're in for a treat!"

They are.

FRIGGA said...

That is precious! I would say all kids look like angels when they sleep, but I once babysat for an 8 year old girl who slept with her eyes open. It totally freaked me out every time - especially the first time when I thought she was dead... 8-)

Holly Schwendiman said...

Man, I totally missed WW yesterday...crazy week. But this pictures is AWESOME. It just sings to the heart. Great capture.

Hugs,
Holly
