Animal Baby

Based on his habit of carrying stuff around in his mouth, Baby Evan seems to be confused as whether the dog is his pet or his brother. Since animals outnumber babies in our house 3 to 1 and he spends most of his time down at cat and dog level anyway, I shouldn’t be too surprised he’s starting to mimic their behavior.  Since the dog’s idea of “fetch” involves staring at the bone/ball/rag and then running in frantic cirlces, Baby Evan probably learned fetch from the cat. She’s much more likely to bring you things (a baby sock she thoughtfully dropped in the water bowl, a plastic twisty tie, a live bat she caught and needed to show you so much she puts it on your head while you’re sleeping YES THAT IS A TRUE STORY) whether you want them or not. I wonder if I should try telling him most babies don’t do ridiculous stuff like this?

Mmmm...this leather shoe is so delicious I don't want to put it down.

How come when I put shoes in my mouth they yell at me but YOU just get your picture taken?

What do you mean I have something on my face?

And in case you needed further proof my baby is having an indentity crisis…

What, I like milk and cuddles and sleeping too. Meow?

  1. That is too, too cute! Hysterical – my brother was the same way as a baby, then he learned to walk with his hands on either side of his belly like a fat old man in a waistcoat with a monocle.

    Sounds as though your furry children like the newest addition!

    Oh my goodness this is one crazy cute baby.

    Seriously!

    I love his laughing face. :)

    Niko will hold stuff in his mouth as she clambers up furniture, then sidle along said furniture still holding the object in his mouth.

    I grew up with dogs. I keep wanting to play fetch with him, and whistle for him to come when I call his name.

    Okay, I am officially more terrified of your cats now than any other thing ON THE PLANET!!! (except for, of course, the live bat!)…(and birds and fish…)
