The Saturday Six: Awkward Baby Photos

 saturday six

 Those precious baby years of development and wonder only happen once. Think about those baby wide sparkly eyes, the cute little high pitched laughter, the pudgy baby feets, the acceptable double baby chins... Awwww! Remember to capture these moments while you can, because one day those cute, little marshmallow sponges of curiosity will turn into teenagers! And teenagers are EVIL!

(They can't help it. It's in their nature.)

Oh, you  still love your teenagers, have too... But let's not pull any punches here...teenagers are like the grocery store cookie aisle full of nothing but stale Vanilla Wafers. You are expecting great things but all you get are moody, room hiding, sour, argumentative, bigger versions of their baby selves that just eat, sleep, and borrow your car. Oh, how sometimes you long for that baby version to appear again... Until it's time to change a diaper. Anyway... Happy Saturday!

1. I Don’t Like Strained Carrots! I Really Don’t!


BrainRants: “Like, Sierra totally wore the same outfit as me today and acted like it was totally like, my fault.  Now nobody will text me back and my boyfriend dumped me for Tiffani.”

Omawarisan: Good news, everyone! Curly, from the Three Stooges, has been reincarnated.

List of X: “To pee or not to pee, that is the question…”

Ned: As a parent, it doesn’t take long to figure out what is happening inside your child’s diaper when you see this face. Some day, my children will see this face when it’s time to change mine.

2. Don’t Sit On The Steam Pipe


BrainRants: “Behold!  I am UberBaby!  Feel the power of my meltdown!  Fear the stench of my poopie!”

List of X: “Uh-oh, I think I pooped out a train!”

Ned: Because it’s never too early to begin preparing your child to be a rail-riding hobo.

3. I Said I Wanted Tulips!


BrainRants: This look roughly translates into, “Give me what I want or I’ll grow up into a microskirt-wearing, meth-inhaling, hose-beast.”

Omawarisan: I think her name might really be Buck.

List of X: Some professional models start developing their trademark gloomy look early on in their careers

Ned: SPOILER ALERT: Guess who’s going to be on the 2035 season of The Bachelorette?

4. I’m Over You Mr. “Professional” Photographer!


BrainRants: So young and innocent… and clearly this cherub is totally out of fucks to give.

Omawarisan: Hey, look at what I found in my Oshkosh B’gosh! Pretty sure it is for you.

List of X: “Nope. Don’t work during my union break.”

Ned: I think I would’ve ordered the silhouette package.

5. Wait…This Is Not The Beach


BrainRants: This one brought to you by Dads Also Wearing Dad Swimwear.

Omawarisan: In that moment, Darrell remembered the rule – “no one should touch you anywhere your bathing suit covers.”

List of X: “OMG, why do I already have chest hair – and just on one side??”

Ned: Gee, most photographers pull out a puppet or stuffed animal from under their apron. What the hell is THAT?!?

6. Pineapple Dum-Dum? I Wanted Root Beer!


 BrainRants: Two words: Birth.  Control.

Omawarisan: My God, the poor woman shoots out kids like she’s a Pez.

List of X: Everyone in the family was ready to take the picture except for little Sean who was still celebrating St. Patrick’s day.

Ned: But I don’t WANT to be a Mormon!

  1. Babies making crazy faces is amazing haha. There’s an infamous video of me running around naked in the backyard with a long piece of grass stuck in my butt after rolling in the grass, hahahaha, hope that never sees the light of day!

  2. Just think – the generation with forever-embarrassing evidence of childhood has been born. I smell blackmail…

  3. And now with so many smart phones in the hands of people who, perhaps, shouldn’t really have one, we can expect more photos like these.

  4. I love pictures like that. Children call it blackmail. I call it “insurance.” 🙂

  5. Ha-ha-ha, nothing like that one screaming, crying baby adding difficulty for others in the photo to keep composure.  And those rare middle-finger moments…

  6. Tulip girl? You guys nailed it. In about 15 years there better be a shiny, white Hummer with a big, red bow parked in front of the house or daddy’s little princess is gonna have an epic meltdown on reality TV.

  7. That kid holding the flower looks like she should have Linda Blair’s Exorcist voice coming out of her. If her head starts spinning and pea soup projectiles come out of her, run, run for your life.

  8. As the mommies and daddies write their Christmas card novellas, complete with luxury purchases and trips abroad, they realize they said nothing about the kiddos. Grabbing the first picture they can find, they stuff it in the card and add, “As you can see, the kid is (kids are) all right.”

    Happy Saturday.

  10. “But I don’t want to be a Mormon” Now that’s funny! He’s probably also crying because his mommy is pregnant again.

  11. Holy moley. #2 looks like Sloth from the Goonies.


  12. I love the picture where they were told they are going to the beach. That is one way to get kids into a photo session!


  13. I loved the first one. The expression is priceless. I wonder what really happened to bring that on!
