Babies nap a lot, and this mom decided it was a perfect opportunity to dress up her little one in the most adorable costumes ever!
Laura Izumikaway, a photographer from Southern California, found out that her daughter Joey is quite a deep sleeper. Laura manages to put various costumes on Joey while the baby continues to sleep without any problems.
After Laura discovered her daughter’s ‘talent,’ she started sharing the photos of her on Instagram, and it attracted more attention that she had probably expected. Right now, the photographer has over 600k followers! Because of the popularity of the photos, Laura even released a book with the images called ‘Naptime with Joey’.
It’s just too much cuteness to handle. We warned you.

Happy Chinese/Lunar New Year! Even though I’m part Chinese and Korean, I still don’t know much about this holiday so I did a little research and I’d like to share what I’ve found for this #JoeyWorldProject entry. (Please correct me if any of this is wrong or add anything else in comments below especially because I really want to know more!) Chinese New Year aka Spring Festival which starts on Feb 16 this year, is also one of the Lunar New Years in Asia so that’s why people call it different names. This festival is a major holiday in China as well as its neighbors including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mauritius, Australia and the Philippines. About one sixth of the world’s people celebrate it. It’s centuries old and while it is celebrated in various cultural ways, most commonly people will visit the most oldest and senior members of their families to honor them. Many give gifts of money in red envelopes to unmarried juniors and kids although I hear nowadays, “there’s an app for that” and cyber money is exchanged. While some countries celebrate it for just 1-3 days, Mainland China will celebrate for about 15 days! This year is the Year of the Dog (and every 12 years before) and according to the Chinese zodiac tradition, people born in the year of the Dog are loyal, honest, kind, cautious but stubborn. It’s so interesting how these traditions arose from so many centuries ago and are still celebrated today. Joey here is wearing a beautiful Vietnamese áo dài that was given to her by our new friends Jessica and Lora. Thank you so much for this beautiful national costume (and for the ube cookies!). Have a wonderful celebration friends! ???#aodai #chinesenewyear #lunarnewyear #tet
