Asleep at the Meal

October 11, 2007 @ 9:11 am | Filed under: Parenting

I bet I have a version of this picture for every one of my kids. Is there anything more adorable than a baby overtaken by slumber in the middle of dinner?


(Kindly ignore the grimy fingerprints on the chair. Egad! Why is it you don’t notice these things until you’re posting them on the internet for all the world to see?)

  1. I always notice the fingerprints AFTER I post it… but with small children around, what else do you expect? 🙂

  2. I love this photo. I also have pictures of all of mine in the same postition.

  3. Oh what a little sweetie, kiss that precious little neck for us 🙂

  4. She gets cuter everyday! (How is that possible?). All of mine have fallen asleep at the table at least once, but I don’t think I have any pictures of it 🙁

  5. I didn’t even notice the fingerprints. I was too busy noticing how clean your table cloth is!

  6. What’s especially funny is that *no one* would’ve noticed, if you hadn’t pointed it out!!! (Oh, no, what if they ARE looking??? I’d better hurry up and check all of my postings!!)

    How precious.

    (My husband will appreciate this one, especially. The most frequently-requested tale from Daddy’s childhood: “Tell us about the time you fell asleep in the mashed potatoes, Daddy!”) 🙂

  7. Oh, too cute! I love her pink eyelids.

    And nope, I wouldn’t have noticed the fingerprints either – even when looking directly at them I can’t stop thinking that it just looks like slightly old wood. Nice chair, by the way.

  8. Adorable.

  9. Oh the little duck! Adorable.

    Um, I don’t see any fingerprints?

    Maybe I need new glasses …

  10. Super Cute. We don’t have a single one like this. My kid never fell asleep without all the blasted jiggling or breastfeeding or cuddling for a couple of hours.

  11. Ok, this must be Rilla but when did she get so BIG? Cute photo.

  12. Wow that is a cute picture 🙂

  13. Aaaaahhhh! She is so gorgeous!

    None of mine have ever collapsed into their dinner, though Little Cherub has come close, and I’m convinced was eating in her sleep the other day – eyes closed, head slumped, hands still shovelling food into mouth, mouth chewing on automatic pilot. I blame nursing her to sleep for developing the eating-while-asleep faculty.

  14. She is the most beautiful little thing!

  15. Oooooh! Absolutely delicious! She is too adorable!

  16. AAAWWWWWW! When did she grow up?

  17. that’s precious! i love when they just fall out in the oddest places.
