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.

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!

When a bow is as big as a baby's head... that's just cute. And this baby just knows how to work it.
