So, the cute baby picture contest just ended. Nearly 600 of the most spectacularly funny, cute, and pissed off babies had me laughing for hours while I sorted through and edited my favorites for today’s post. When I was done, I had 223 that I couldn’t live without. Then I somehow slashed that down to 174. And then eventually I gritted my teeth and got it down to 150 even.
The problem is, I LOVE BABIES. And every single one of the pics I wanted to keep and share in an SDL post. But let’s be honest… 600 pictures… that’s a lot to sort through as a reader.
But before I share them, guess what!? Ceiva, the company that was giving away those spectacular sharable digital picture frames… they gave me a coupon code you can use if you wanna, you know, get one for somebody for Christmas or something. $25 off. Not too shabby, especially considering that they don’t do that, like pretty much ever! Just go to the Ceiva website and enter the code SingleDadLaughing at checkout. And no, that’s not an affiliate code.
So, I’m going to do five afternoon posts over the next 2-3 weeks with 30 of my favorites in each one. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Every single one I found myself narrating or giving my voice to the baby. So, I might as well continue that here!
Which were your favorites and what did they make you think of? Did you laugh as hard as I did? I swear, baby pics have the power to pull anybody out of the worst mood ever.

In regards to the photo captioned "Ummmmmmm is this kid sleeping.
I'm so stoked to see my pic made the cut! Baby Katie was a very chubby-cheeked little cherub. And when she smiled her eyes disappeared completely. She's totally awake and enjoying that just-bathed feeling :-)
I love the one with the bowl on her head! Maybe I'm biased :) I too, love the quote, it's beautiful!
I fell a little behind on the blog and tonight started with your post that said "I am a woman and therefore I hate myself". That is me. One hundred and fifty percent, I am there. And then I see pictures like these. I remember that my "fat" nurtured two lives. It made two very healthy babies who have become very healthy children. (knock on wood) This "fat" made two kids know that at least one parent (though usually two) would be there for all school performances, even if it meant late dinner or a skipped work out. Thank you, Dan, for helping me remember why I'm here. A man who loves me for me won't care about my size, and my kids will love me forever, no matter what.
So true...although i love smiling for the camera..my boys now pose for all the shots......the frame i am....
Amen! I love this quote. I feel like this all the time when I go out with my toddler. People look at us, and their eyes automatically slide past me and go to my daughter, and 99% of the time, the contact I get from others is smiles to her, and comments about her. Definitely feel like a frame!
I've got a great picture of my 3 year old daughter that would be great to share. Hmmm I wonder if I should.
The sleeping baby with the hair on end and a huge smile made me giggle. I LOVE these contests, and the entries all brighten my day! Looking forward to the next 4!
Just to clarify some things with you SDL, babies do NOT make the past forgotten. Trust me on that. But they do indeed make the future worth living for, I'm living proof.
I love the baby pics! Ah! :D The big brother one is soooo sweet. So is the business baby playing in the mulch. But they are ALL super cute!
Oh man. My fave is actually because of your comment as much as the picture. The business suit/woodchips one. Busted out a belly laugh on that one. :-)
Ev if your 11 year old read it and knows what it mean he/she is was more knowledgeable then myself and its to late to hide it!
Dan, I gotta agree with the comment on the other page about puff, puff, pass and WTF - NOT appropriate. I was going to show the babies to my 11-yr-old until those popped up.
Babies are beautiful but they cannot do the above if the parents are not loving toward each other first. Adults who have a baby to save, help, or improve a poor marriage should be charged with abuse!
Oh yes, we love the baby that is sleeping and smiling with fuzzy duck hair... caption Ummmm is that kid asleep? SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My other daughter is TRES mad at you... she didnt see HER picture, only her baby sister, and I am in CRAP now! LOL! Cant win'em all, TJ!
@MaureenClark ;) my favorite too but i'm bias! Thank you! That's our hero and our youngest!
@KaraButtree That's my submission. Fuzzy haired smiling baby is not sleeping. She just really loved bath time. And she had such chubby cheeks that when she smiled she couldn't keep her eyes open. I'm glad you think it's cute. It's one of my fav pics of all time.
@KaraButtree LOL. It may still have made the cut! Four posts to go!
@wildvizionz SO funny!
