Sleeping Baby


On Friday I went to a baby shower with the Illustration Friday prompt of "asleep" floating around somewhere in my brain. Marveling at each adorable miniature dress or pair of shoes that the mother-to-be held up for the guests to "ooh" and "ah" over I was reminded of how sleep would soon become an obsession for both baby and mother.

Oh, you're so right about sleep being an obsession for babies and mothers! This is lovely; the colors are so soft and sweet and you can just feel the weight of that sleepy baby. Thanks for stopping by my blog, too!

Oh, how lovely Vicky! There is truly nothing like holding a baby, that beautiful soft hair and perfect skin… all conjured perfectly by this illustration. : )
