Artist somehow makes her sleeping babies even more adorable
October 24, 2013 9:50 AM   Subscribe

Do babies dream when they sleep, or they simply rest peacefully? Queenie Liao, an artist and a mother of three boys, has shared the adventures that her child Wengenn dreams of during his sleep. Combining artistry and imagination with photography, Queenie has created captivating photos using plain cloths, stuffed animals, and other common household materials to create the background setting.

This is pretty damn cute, but the pictures of the baby sleeping on his stomach make me cringe. No, no, no.

I'm pretty sure the baby is fine sleeping on his stomach with his mother right there. He also looks old enough to roll over.

That said, these are adorable!

Yeah, it seems like I've seen at least 3 of these sleeping-baby-tableau photo sets, but these are crazy good.

I will never get tired of these as long as people keep doing them so well.

I want to know where one acquires these babies, the ones that will stand being moved and positioned and surrounded with various props and photographed with a click-y DSLR, and STAY ASLEEP through it.

The medical advice of the day when I was born was that babies were supposed to sleep on their stomachs. At least that's what the nurses told my mother, and I survived. I do not remember dreaming at that time.

They must go through a lot of Benadryl in that household!

You survived, but since the sleeping-on-the-back campaign started in the 90's, SIDS rates have dropped by half.

It also coincided with the no bedding or bumpers campaign, which is also likely to have been at least as effective advice as "Back-to-Sleep".

Don't worry, I at least think it's much more awesome to leave your napping baby to just nap, without turning the kid into your art project.

Some of them are "awwwww...."

Some of them are great invocations for SenseO'Wonder (TM).

Some of them are horribly disturbing and I can't even with them.

Every one is wonderfully crafted, nonetheless.

Love the claw one.

Even without the baby, I'm astounded that the fabric can be crafted so dimensionally.

Of course, with the baby, it's teh adorbs.

I had to look at this one several times before determining (with relief) that this one had nothing to do with a tampon.
