My Baby's Cuter Than Your Baby

In this competitive blogosphere, it is not enough to merely have the most readers. Nope, the real question is, who has the cutest baby? I do.

Cakes is a giving little soul; she likes to feed the people she loves:

She’s showing signs of being an ESFJ, like her mother. At the drop-in the other day, a mom and her one-year old came in for the first time. Cakes approached the baby immediately and gave her the toy she was playing with. Then she got down a fire truck for her from the shelf of vehicles. Next, she walked over the bookshelves and gestured magnanimously. She’s a sweet little girl.

For the longest time she’s been throwing Dirty Simon
everywhere: down the stairs, out of her crib, in empty boxes--then she gets upset. We couldn’t figure out why she did that, until BP realized she throws him where she wants to go. Makes perfect sense—why couldn’t we figure that out sooner? Dumb parents, we are.

She’s been walking for quite a while now—it’s such fun to watch her adorable penguin-like waddle. Now she tries to run too. It’s hilarious—she gets going a little too fast and her chubby little legs get caught up, her eyes get a little wide and splat! Down she goes. She gets back on her feet right away, with a smile.

We play hide-and-seek together. I run down the hall and hide in the guest room closet. She chases me; she finds me; “boo!” I shout. She puts her hand on my arm, laughs and turns heel, and runs the other way.

What cuteness is your babe up to lately?

Awww. Your little Cakes is adorable.

I LOVE playing peek-a-boo with Little Guy. It is so cute to see him run off and start giggling when I chase him.

My "babies" are too old. :( Actually, I was just sharing a little cuteness from my six year old yesterday on my blog. She is losing teeth like crazy; becoming very interested in hair styles, although I disagree with her about what constitutes "pretty" hair; and, she is really beginning to read. I love watching a kid as they are learning to read. It is the best.

Cakes if adorable I love the daisy hat. And an ESFJ, huh? I love Myers-Briggs! I am an ENFP although I can't tell yet what my daughter is. Possibly an ESFP--which might kill me in the end. I have two good friends who are ESFPs and they are very busy people!

Have you read Nurture by Nature. It is parenting according to Myers-Briggs. Very good book. And a little bit like therapy for me. I read how to deal with an ENFP chid and thought, "Yes. That is how I should have been dealt with."

Thanks for sharing pictures of Cakes. I'm a bit of a babyaholic! Have a great day, too.

P.S. Pardon the typing errors. Some of it is just "pilot error" and some of it is this stupid keyboard which has been spilt on too many times. The keys are getting stickier and stickier.

Cakes' personality shines though the computer. She is beyond cute!

I love the Dirty Simon analogy. It makes perfect sense and yet I don't think I would have figured that out.

Buttercup is learning her animal sounds accompanied by her stuffed cow, monkey and tiger. It's sweet times!

She's a doll. Gracie goes wild for peek-a-boo, hiding under the covers as I make the bed. Don't they just get cuter everyday?

That's very cute.

My little one runs up to strangers legs and hugs them. It's kind of freaking me out.

that sure is what cute little muffin ;)

but this poses an age-old question that my friends and i were talking about recently. just a note right up front - you don't need to worry - your baby is ADORABLE. you know if your kid isn't cute??? or do you see your kids through "rose-colored glasses" and no matter what think they are the most beauitufl creatures on the planet??!!

Aren't they so much fun at this age?!

bumblebee's cutest thing at the moment is her repertoire of animal sounds. she squishes up her face to hiss like a snake, makes like a chipmunk, beats her belly like a gorilla and waves like an octopus.
she also blows her nose and bosses luke around, which is really really funny since he's so much bigger. oh, there is so much more!...

whew, that felt good. thanks for the adorableness outlet.

She's pretty freakin' cute alright. Even WonderBaby (who is stomping frogs in her current pics) admits that Cakes is right up there with her in the cute department.

Yes indeed. Cute for sure. George wants a date.

He has a chrush on another blogosphere baby too... he's a player I think.

Some cuteness that he's been up to:

He's been playfully hitting his brother lately. This doesn't sound like much, but it really is the cutest thing to see him get out of the pure baby stage, adn into a stage where he can actually be playful with his brother.

Your kid is the cutest, eh? Them's fighting words, lady.

But she is damn cute, I have to admit that.

My kid thinks its fun to throw her entire lunch and dinner to the dogs. The dogs are getting fat and my kid isn't eating. Good times.

She's pretty high up on the cute scale, that's for sure.

And she feeds others? Wow. Cordelia wouldn't ever offer any of her beloved food to anyone else.

pumpkinpie is a caretaker too, always feeding us, sharing her toys and doggies...

Cuteness? Tonight at dinner, she was singing a song - Skip to my Lou - then stopped and said, "That's a great song!"

Umph...she is delicious. I will have to take that personality sorter...but I am sort of terrified by what I will find out.

Ummmm, and my girls are so the cutest kids in the park. ...I'll duke it out with ya later;)
