Lullaby Cow Brings Us Sleepy Time

Cow Parade (West Orange, New Jersey, 2001) brings us today's Cow-of-the-Day, "Lullaby Cow." Today is Sunday and since it is a day of rest, I think she is the perfect cow for today. We have teamed up to present one of the most beautiful sights on earth---a sleeping baby.

The first picture is of my daughter, Kellie, holding her baby brother, William, back in 1979. The next one is William, now all grown up holding his daughter Amelia in 2005.

The next picture is Kellie's daughter, Macie ,when she was a baby in 1997. The baby sleeping on the rock is her son, Connor. These pictures were taken on a camping trip in the Smoky Mountains. We all had so much fun the little fellers were just plum worn out.
This Prince Charming is my husband Bob. Colton got so tired climbing Mt. Vesuvius in the summer of 2005 he wanted to be carried. He promptly feel fast asleep on Bob's shoulder.


Finally, Abigail and Amelia were so tired from a full day of fun at Walt Disney World they fell fast asleep in Gina's and Will's arms waiting for the monorail.


Last but not least, here's baby Abigail at the family reunion in 2004. Nothing is more relaxing than holding a sleeping baby. Don't worry, I'm just resting my eyes. Lullaby and good night everybody. Sweet dreams!

My ! What a beautiful family you have they are gorgeous - there is nothing like the feeling of a baby or young one 'coorin' in to you and snoring softly or even just watching closely when a wee one is sleeping soundly... It's like a glimpse of heaven right there in front of you isn't it.
Cheers Kate x.

There is nothing like a sleeping baby. The pictures are all so cute. I'm not sure I've ever seen that picture of the girls in Disney. They look so young. Time Flies :(

Oh Faith. Those pictures are beautiful. Isn't it something when you see pictures of your children when they were just babies...and then beside them pictures of them with their own little babies? Thats so perfect. They are all so sweet. The picture of your and the little Abigail snuggling is lovely. I know it. They feel so good cuddled with you don't they. I love it too!
Thank you for much for sharing your family. Bob must be a proud grandpa too!
Have a lovely day!
