Dylan seems to be at a particularly binary stage of babydom: either he’s being ridiculously, almost putridly adorable, or he’s a rotten little hell-beast who should be reclassified as a WMD and parachuted into war zones.

One state begs more camera documentation than the other, obviously:

I realize I’m not capable of being entirely objective over here, but I’m pretty sure he’s cute.

2549458319_5d2c0042be.jpg
He recently discovered his feet, and I can tell he wants so very, very badly to stuff them in his mouth.

Tonight out of nowhere Riley decided he wanted to feed Dylan and although the execution was clumsy, the little scene was so sweet I nearly leapt from my chair in order to delete this entry, because what madness had I been talking about, everything is so miraculous and amazing and heart-shatteringly beautiful; then Riley had a tantrum and Dylan yelled all during the Obama speech and I was all, oh yeah. But still: SO SWEET.

The reddish hair is killing me lately, ditto the flirty expressions.

Lastly,

Ah, can someone hand me the remote? Please?

You are not just biased. Your kid is absolutely adorable. The hair, those eyes (!!), that little smile, and his skin is to die for. He’s a handsome little devil. :)

Both of your boys are too cute for words! You can almost see Dylan’s little boy face in these pics :) I love the red hair . . . my fiance is a redhead and i’m a blonde so if i squint at Dylan’s pics I can allllmoooossstttt guess what ours might look like. We’ll be very lucky if they’re that cute! :D

Seriously Linda, Dylan could win awards for fucking cuteness. I look at him and I smile every time. And Riley feeding Dylan could kill me with all that sweet gooshiness.

My 2nd boy is 7 weeks old today. Seeing your photos and reading your posts of handling two give me hope that things will get “easier”.

How do you handle the spitting up? My babe is a faucet. I can’t even put him down in the bouncer without kicking up and ounce or two.

Digging the hair. I make baldies over here.

I am not going near that remote. I think that cat put the remote outside the cave on purpose.

Your kids are just as cute as mine! :)

Are you crazy? I’m not stupid you know. I know that if I put my hand anywhere near that remote that the devil cat will remove it and you will just start rolling on the floor all Bwahhhahhhahha and I’ll be all like bleeding all over the place and you’ll just be wiping your own tears of joy away and say “Gotcha”

The red hair! It kills me! My husband is a redhead, and it’s a sort of hit-or-miss thing, you know. I want so desperately to have a baby with red hair but it’s usually a shock you, didn’t expect this, where did it come from (oh yea! that distant relative!) kind of thing. But lord he’s beautiful, isn’t he?

I’m blinded by the cuteness. And SO stinkin’ sweet that Riley was feeding Dylan.

Yes, motherhood is a ride. Some days you’re the bug, some days you’re the windshield. I had a few bug moments myself today. Ugh. Tiredness.

That is so sweet! I now want to go and make baby #2 hahaha!

Kidding aside, your kids are lovely. The picture that you’ve captured there is priceless!

Ahhh–I think I am OD-ing on cuteness. In a good way. And if you get a shot of the feet-stuffing-in-mouth I will pay you a million dollars. How great is it when babies nom on their own feet?!

“reddish”? Dylan looks like a bonafide pink-cheeked, blue-eyed redhead to me! He’s darling!

Also, did JB set that trap for you? or has Cat become more devious?

I love his flirty expressions; I can tell now you’re going to be dealing with MANY girlfriends with both Dylan + Riley. Handsome men!

Here is Dylan’s MAIN squeeze (YOUR future DIL):

Dylan should stay a baby forever just to keep the human race supplied with cuteness. I realize this would be an inconvenience for his parents, but perhaps we could compensate you somehow.

P.S. If I could order a kid, I’d order that model.

pics – tooooo cute. Re. Riley feeding Dylan, I say why the heck not get even more use out of him and teach him how to change his nappies etc?

Trina, hadn’t we decided Cat’s couch creations were ‘Lairs’ not ‘caves’, I’m sure we had pie charts and everything…..

I’m pretty sure babies are so darn smooshy so we don’t throw them out with the garbage when they’re having a hell beast moment. Both of your little guys are absolutley ADORABLE! P.S. Also LOVE the reddish hair. I think you have two heartbreakers on your hands!

VERY VERY CUTE! I love the red hair… We were so surprised our son’s hair was this color and MORE surprised when it has mostly stayed that color (a little lighter but not the blond we thought it would eventually become!)

And CAT and the remote… that wild and crazy cat!

Your only option is to buy a new remote. Sorry.

And may I just say your children are SO ADORABLE! It’s almost too much to bear.

Bah! Cuteness is too painful! Don’t you just love the ups and downs of parenthood. I get a bit motion sick from time to time but heh, what a ride.

Oh my gosh the cuteness is unbearable! He is sooo adorable. He’s going to be quite the charmer. When he’s not doing his best imitation of a WMD, of course :)

Marie Green

Oh, he is so very cute- and he (all babies)is genetically predisposed to be cute so that we don’t leave them out in the woods during their hell-beast phases. I thank God everyday that my toddler has ruddy, chubby cheeks and a dimple, b/c otherwise… wolf bait…

Is it a bad thing that I could stare at your kids almost as long as I could stare at mine. Dylan is beautiful, complete perfectness! Kudos to you and JB, you hit the nail on the head…Twice…Hmm-Hmm!

You’re pretty sure he’s cute? I’m here to tell you he’s freakin’ adorable. At Riley feeding Dylan? That’s so sweet I’m going into a diabetic coma here. The only sweetness I get lately is when The Captain farts on Jr’s head and Jr laughs instead of beating the crap out of him.

The pie chart showed the winning vote was Trap with Hive coming in close behind and Lair and Cave tied for last place.

Cat Trap. I like it.

Riley looks like you, Sundry and I think Dylan is looking more like JB. They are both extremely cute kids!

Totally unrelated, I’m going to hijack this comments section. There was a post about who is your fave movie star aka who is hotter than damn it…. well, John Cusack came up on the comments multiple time. He’s got a myspace to promote his new movie War Inc which is showing only in NY & LA last weekend & this. They need enough support to get it out in more cities next. If you’re in NY or LA…go see it. Here’s the URL: http://www.myspace.com/johncusack

Mwah ha ha…back to your regularly scheduled blogging.

I knew that baby’s hair was red. But Dylan’s eyes seem to be tending towards greyish-blue. And doesn’t Riley look like the consumate Seattle kid in that plaid shirt? Bring on Nirvana. Oh, the angst.

So so cute. Not cute is not being able to load your site for hours after getting the email notice. My browser says it can’t find the server sundrymourning.com — anyone else having similar issues?

Is it me, or does he have extremely long, finger-like toes? He is pretty stinking cute…especially since he’s not screaming on the changing table like mine just did.

Dylan’s feet still look pretty massive. That kid is not going to have ANY problems getting laid in about 17 years..:-P

He’s extremely cute. Although I might be slightly biased since my little boy is also a blue-eyed redhead. There’s something about that combination.
