    Well, I voted for MyLife cause her little one is sleeping on the same turtle my little boy was sleeping on in my entry!!!
    Sad we weren’t picked, but I must say, some of these are pretty cute!!!

  2. says

    Oh my are we excited our daughter got picked! We are #10 MamaMoose. Maddie has been home from China for 9 months, loves her crib, but would love this set more! :)
    Thanks for picking us!

  3. says

    What a great idea to have a competition like this! I am so glad I am not the one to choose the best. They are all so adorable and capture the moment so well. I also got some ideas for future baby pictures for the constant flow of orphan babies we take care of here. Without a doubt my heart is with the Chinese girls.

  4. says

    Wow! There were so many great entries.

    We are excited to be #12 on the list (the boy in the monkey pajamas).

    If you get a chance, click my name and read the blog post about this picture. It was almost a 2 week effort to take this photo but it was a lot of fun.

    Good luck to everyone!

  5. says

    Had to choose #8. I can’t resist a little tooshy in the air! Absolutely loved when my little ones slept like that. Every once in a while, I’ll catch my 4 yr. old sleeping like that and it brings back baby memories!! Great choices- it was hard to pick one! Jen

  6. says

    I am still in shock that we were picked as a finalist #9, Thank you for considering us! What is funny is that I had just said the day before that my kids never fall asleep sitting up!

    I don’t think I even know enough people to get enough votes so I have to leave it in God’s hands and pray that if it His will for her to have this bedroom set, then we will be blessed to receive it and give Him all the glory!

  7. Maria says


    I’m voting for #10 because I know how much praying and hard work went into getting this little angel over here to her adoptive mommy.

  8. says

    #8 – Keli at Twelve Paws! I had surfed the entries before the finalists were announced and read this story behind the picture. I can *totally* understand the desperation in trying to get them to sleep, and loved the pic. Good luck!

  9. says

    I am so honored to be chosen as a finalist, as well. We are a homeschool, single income family, struggling so hard right now to make ends meet. Just to be chosen as a finalist today has uplifted my spirits more than words can say! It’s definitely been something to SMILE about. :) So thank you!

    We’re #20 – which I’ve entitled “Cowgirl Dreams”. Pop over to my blog and read the story about my little cowgirl. :)

  10. says

    Wow!! I was sooooo excited when I got online tonight and noticed the most recent post on 5minutesformom! Then when I scrolled down and saw that I was a finalist (#5), I pretty much flipped out!! I’ve never won anything, or even been a finalist for anything like this. My boys would be BEYOND excited if we won! This is something we could never afford ourselves but we would definitely put it to good use!

    Thank you 5mintuesformom for chosing me as a finalist!

  11. says

    What a joy to be chosen as a finalist (#13). It’s so hard to pick a favorite picture when you have 3 wonderful boys…and they are all angels when asleep. I appreciate your votes.

  12. says

    Wow! So excited to be on the list of finalists! My sleeping beauty (#7) clutching his precious “Buhwiteyear” could sure use that bedroom set! Thank you for all your votes!

  13. Debbie Barber says

    I so love these pics. Grat Idea. Finally pics of children, not NUDE ladies. Wqay To Gooooooo !! And #5 is by far the cutest,

  14. says

    Well, of course my sleeping captain hook grandson at sermon on the mount of laundry is THEEEE cutest; but hey, have you thought of a contest for site / blog names….there are lots of winners among your 20 finalists!!!!

  15. Sherri says

    These pix made my day! My pick is #18. The story behind this picture and family really touched my heart. Good luck and my prayers are with you and your family.

  16. says

    Too bad our families and friends don’t know I blog! I can’t let anyone close to us know we’re finalists (#12) or they’ll find out about my blog! LOL We’re still very honored to be chosen. There were hundreds of adorable entries in the contest.

  17. says

    The vote button is after the list of photos. But once you have voted once on your computer, then it will just show results.

    Only one vote per computer is allowed.

  18. says

    I realize it says 1 per computer, but my wife voted on her laptop, I’m on the desktop and I no longer can see the vote section. Could it be 1 per wireless network within a residence?

  19. Valerie says

    I tried to vote and couldn’t, so here’s my vote… #18, Kaden. Go to his mom’s blog and look at the story, such an amazing little boy and such a sweet sleeping picture!

  20. April & Family says

    #18 gets our family vote! The story behind the picture is so heart touching! To Kaden and his family- You have been through so much already– GOD BLESS YOU! We hope you win!!

  21. staci says

    My vote is for #18 what a amazing little boy and the story just melts my heart. Kaden and Angel ava’s mommy is my pick.

  22. says

    #18 Sir Kaden gets my vote!!!!!

    and a Big ‘Thank You’ for 5 minutes for Mom for offering all these opportunities for sweet little blessings in our lives.

    All of these sleeping children are precious and gifts.

  23. Amy says
