I’m just poaching this picture from RedKitten’s FB feed, but this picture of SamKitten after a bath is too damned adorable to not post:
It kind of looks like that Redkitten ran into the same assembly issues that TBOGG did with Wembley, because those legs don’t look like they are in the right place.
hey, as long as it doesn’t have the dreaded pamela anderson “third arm from who knows where”.
Those IKEA pictographs never make sense to me, either.
Wob wob wob wob wob.
I almost want one of those. Almost.
Nice end to a crappy day.
Spawn of Redkitten is go-juss! Just go-juss!
Heh — the thing with the legs is because I was drying him off on the mat, and he kept insisting on holding his own feet. So when I went to pick him up, that was the result.
It DID at least put his toes in the perfect position for some post-bath nomming…

That boy is gonna just make the girls cry, isn’t he?
Look at the biceps on that kid!!
That is one seriously adorable baby. I miss the boneless baby stage. But I don’t miss the teething and diapers and immunizations and sleepless nights :)
I remember those days with love. Hang onto them Redkitten they go by so fast.
Babies make Gumby look like a brittle old lady. Very soon, that heartbreaker will discover that those tooties are a perfect fit for his mouth.
ETA–Ah-missed the post indicating that he is already pleased to find that he came equipped with tootsie pops.
@Bad Horse’s Filly: If this thread is any indication, he already is.

I noticed that too, I think he will grow into a sizeable lad. Olympic Curler?
Nothing dainty about those big feets neither.
You know what they say about big feet….. :-D
ETA: it’s not big feet, warm heart
Oh, those cheeks…. he’s so cute.
Redkitten, he is adorable.
Baby flesh is so damned succulent.
If it is your baby. Otherwise, you are a perv.
My youngest stood up on day 2 of life. He is a character.
The saddest day in my life, so far, is when I realized that I could no longer smooch on my kids. They were too old and it was no longer appropriate. I still want to, but I don’t do that infantilization thing. So I hug them, in an age appropriate way, and remember the times when I could smack on them and they would giggle.
If she lost the assembly instructions there’s usually a PDF at the website.
OMG! He has LOTS of teeth now.
Having children is a way to say hello to anxieties that you didn’t even know existed. And you never get used to them, they just change into new ones as the kids get older.
They go by too damn fast. Way too damn fast.
Spend every day thinking a little about how awesome this is right now.
You’re going to turn around and he’s going to be 48 inches tall.
It’s a little heartbreaking really. But in a good way I guess.
Redkitten, Sam looks like he’s well on the way to being a defensive lineman in the NFL ( or an NHL defensemen if you prefer). What a total cutie pie.
And as cute as your link to Wembley is John, this one is even cuter. Oscar Madison in a field of flowers.
Just the two teeth, Comrade Mary. The sunlight bouncing off his gums makes it look like more.
And yes, he’s always thoroughly delighted when he manages to get his own toes in his mouth. He likes doing this while I’m trying to put a clean diaper on him. He especially likes grabbing on to both feet, farting loudly, and then laughing at himself.
He’d fit in very well here, I think.
No kidding! My 3rd grader had a note in his bookbag from a girl!! telling him to call her this weekend. I look at his baby pics all over the house and think “that seemed a lifetime ago!”
@IndyLib: Wembley’s eyebrows are f-ing genius. Every time I look at him I laugh.
@RedKitten: I had to let go of a foot to type this.

@John Cole: Yes we are all disgusting in our cooing aren’t we?
While my taste these days runs toward my tall, dark, handsome bad boy, the first boy to really make my heart go zing was a tall, green eyed, redhead high school basketball player.
I predict many a young girl will lose her heart to SamKitten the same way. Probably starting in kindergarten.
General Egali Tarian Stuck
Wow, So do I.
@madmommy: She was probably just busting his ass about the public option.
That is so sad. I suppose we mothers have the advantage there, because we can always get away with kissing our sons. I know that my husband is always kissing Sam, “while I (he) still can”.
@Comrade Mary: That is highly inappropriate for this thread!
It’s just wrong…to..say…
Oh, you said *snorgle*.
Too much Massa threads lately.
I just love it when babies eat their own feet. It just tickles me to death. OT but DH has obviously put on a DVD in the bedroom after having gone to bed and the music that introduces the movie is playing over, and over and over again cause DH has obviously fallen asleep. I wonder if he is going to wake up at some point and figure it out.
In this town? Not bloody likely. This is Vitter country, my friend. It is depressing in the extreme to know that the vast majority of people I interact with on a daily basis are either teabaggers or sympathetic to the cause.
He’ll discover his pen1s in the next several months. You think you’re laughing now? Ha! Hilarity truly begins with the toddler boner.
@Bad Horse’s Filly: Oh, my first crush was a brown-eyed redhead. I pined for that guy all the way through grade 7, 8 and half of grade 9, when we moved to another city, and have been extra sweet on redheads ever since.
A few years ago, I was Googling old boyfriends and eventually ran out, so I started Googling crushes, and found out that my seventh grade crush E. lived and worked just a few blocks from my new house.
Yes, he was my parish priest. Yes, I dropped into the church one afternoon. No, I didn’t let him hear my confession. No, I didn’t go back.
@madmommy: Mine starts Kindergarten this Fall. I’m scared to death I’m going to blink and we’ll be touring college campusii.
You’re giving me baby fever. STOP IT. I need to hatch this degree first.
I WANT ONE.
The fat pads on those little baby feet always tantalized me, back when I had babies. If it were on some animal-flesh you could buy at the grocers, you would sautee those in butter immediately.
But that just makes me sound a little too Hannibal Lecter, doesn’t it?
Beautiful beautiful boy, RedKitten.
Nothing better than hearing your own baby giggle.
My youngest is on his second go-round with kindergarten this year. September birthday+speech delay+male=more kindergarten! The older one is going off to the middle school next year with 7th and 8th graders. I am already worrying about it!
And yes. Blink and you miss it.
Does he like to wait until you get his diaper changed, then fill it right up again? That is a really funny one.
When my son was crawling, I used to take his diaper off and let him crawl into the bathroom for his bath. He had very little body fat and all of his muscles would work in synchrony. It was like watching a cat walk. So beautiful.
@Corner Stone #33: Check out the photo (it’s about no. 40 or 41) called “His hand is ALWAYS in his mouth” posted Dec 8th 2009 — and tell me he isn’t holding his junk with the the other hand.
@Corner Stone: Ah, yes, discovery of the peepee. Just a short time ago, the oldest one started flicking at his every time I change him. He also likes to thrust his diapered crotch at the sliding glass door, chanting, “Mah peepee! Mah peepee!”
His little brother (not a codename for the peepee, his actual little brother) just found out that his feet fit in his mouth. He often ends up with wet socks and jammie footies if left to his own devices. He’s going to love it now that warmer weather is on the way.
Umm, no. It makes you sound a fuckton like HL. With a little Donner Party thrown in.
Yeah, I know.
He’s just so goddamn adorable.
Could almost pour gravy on him and nibble.
very reverend crimson fire of compassion
AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! That’s all. Thank you.
OMG! He is just the cutest thing evah!
Thanks for sharing the photo!
I also liked the video. Little Sammy has the sweetest laugh.
What a great kid. :-)
@Genine: Can you imagine the number of crazy American aunts and uncles SamKitten will get to say he has?
Cute baby, but all this sweetness & light is really bad for my nervous system.
SamKitten always brings a huge grin to my face, and that’s no small feat. What a lovely boy he is. My first crush was a redhead as well–with green eyes. I had a crush on him from first grade all through six grade.
@John Cole: OK, you made me snort with this line. Nice!
@Yutsano: Not to mention all the exposure (pun intended) he’s had world-wide!
He’s so adorable. And such a big boy already.
@Bad Horse’s Filly:
Yo yo yo yo yo hold up. That kid’s already spoken for.
I love baby’s feet. They are so soft & pudgy.
@R-Jud: Great photo, with the hand-knitted clothes, and the flower pots in the background–not to mention that gorgeous face! She’s really beautiful.
I always thought the fat cheeks were the most nommable part of a baby. Face cheeks, not butt cheeks. And Sam looks very nommable. Enjoy him while he’s still tender and tasty.
@R-Jud: Little Bean is so cute! She and SamKitten make an adorable couple.
@R-Jud: Man, we are going to have some seriously cute grandkids.
LOL! Between Sammy at the top and Bean a little upthread, this is just a delightful way to wake up. As for Sammy’s feet in his face, I remember how Bottle Rocket could do that. Babies can fold up in amazing ways.
Sweet baby Jesus. Now I can come for baby pics AND puppy stories!! YAY!
@RedKitten: I totally expect a bunch of shepherds and astrologer-kings to show up bearing gifts when the first one’s born.
@R-Jud: Love the rosy cheeks. . .
After nom-nomming on his fist or toes, does he then offer them to you? That always cracks me up (“want some? it’s good. . . “)
he’s almost as cute as mine. [grin]
@twiffer: Mmmm, snow. Babies in those kinds of hats are adorable.
I know this was directed at RedKitten, but yes, it kills me when the Bean offers us whatever she’s been chewing on: fist, toy rabbit, biscuit, sock. She will also grab the brush away from me when I’m working on her hair and gently bonk my head with it.
It’s time you got married Mr. Cole. It’s Red Kitten’s devious plan to mindfuck you to get hitched. Don’t fall for it.
This, coming from a once manly man, who sees rainbows and stars and turns to jello, when his little angel so much as shoots a sideways glance at him.
Before you know it, you’ll be changing diapers, washing nipples and bottles and decorating rooms in your house in flaming pink. Snap out of it while you still have a chance.
Must ………. Resist……..
That’s a cute baby Redkitten.
He’s too adorable. And the feet kind of resemble Wembly’s, don’t they? :-)
@R-Jud: yes. he’s recently decided that only he should put it on his head though, which leads to many instances of tassels over face. and he keeps trying to convince me that snow = ice cream. i’m not buying it, not even with hot fudge.
Have you seen the over the top fretting Cole does with petcare maintenance issues?
I can not even begin to imagine the hyper-chondriac parental issues this man could fall prey to.
Boggled, the mind is.
@horatius: hey, changing diapers is a very manly thing to do!
My god, there is too much cuteness in this thread. Aren’t there rules about that?
I used to work with a guy with two kids who would boast he’d never changed a diaper. Like he was proud of it.
What a pathetic asshole he was.
@Betsy: Need to see if you can get mistermix to drop by this thread. Apparently he likes to say “fuck”.
I think he also wears the crankypants at the DougJ/mistermix abode.
That would be one ridiculously well cared-for infant.
It’d be perpetually dressed in Steelers gear, but it’d be well-cared-for.
@Corner Stone: i’ve never understood the sort of guy who is proud of being an asshole. mystifying.
My proud claim is that after all the diapers I changed, I only got hit by jet-poo once.
I don’t mind the being an asshole part. It’s the “pathetic” part as it relates to your children that I never understood.
