I was visiting with my friend Ashley today and as she watched Dylan struggle to be upright in my lap she predicted he’d be sitting on his own soon. About an hour after she left, he proved her right:

STAGE ONE: THE TINY GORILLA STANCE.

STAGE TWO: STARTLING NEW VANTAGE POINT.

STAGE THREE: HOLY CRAP! HOW YOU LIKE MAH DICDIAPER NOW?

STAGE FOUR: SLOW-MO CARPET FACEPLANT.

You should know that I actually did put the camera down at that point to rescue him. Although he was pretty funny-looking, all mashed into the carpet with his hands trapped underneath him. It would have made a great contribution to this site.

I went and got a skull-cushioning boppy pillow for him, but at that point he was all about kicking back and going, did you SEE that shit? Whoah.

    So cute!
    I love that look of “OMG! The WORLD! VERTICAL! WHO KNEW?!”

    That is the best photo series ever. I am impressed you stopped in time to avert a certain faceplant. I don’t think I have that much self control.

    He is adorable.

    That just made my day. Go, tiny gorilla, go!

    (And then I just read your “daily piffle” about the potty chair. And cried. I think that means you have to fumigate Dog.)

    This blog is consistently funnier than basically anything else on the internet. Also see: Your tweets.

    I’m glad someone else is okay with calling their kid an asshole, etc.

    Also, Dylan’s expressions are amazing.
