At my Boston baby shower last year, I could’ve sworn I’d already nailed down Baby Lump’s first Halloween costume (pictured here – a gift from Lindsay, Maggie and Julie). Turns out I was slighly off at estimating how big Emmett would be at his first Halloween. I tried Emmett’s monkey suit on him last night, and well, you can see for yourself how funny he looks. It fits him perfectly now, but I doubt I’ll be able to squeeze him into it in a month… (Can you spot the toofers?)
Don’t worry, I have a few other Halloween costume ideas up my sleeve, and they’re all as equally adorable as the monkey suit (if not more adorable).

The other day I caught Emmett sleeping in the most adorably odd position ever – I had to snap a photo …
What a cutie patootie!

I finally found it! I’ve been meaning to post this video for a while now since it coincides with bloggers’ and comedians’ recent manbaby craze, but it’s not on TV a lot, and I couldn’t for my life remember what the commercial was advertising. Well I finally saw the commercial again, so here it is, Boost Mobile‘s disturbingly odd manbaby commercial. Kind of weird how the “father” has to shuffle down the freezer aisle like that …

James found this wonderfully funny video on College Humor this morning. Just another example of people’s seemingly odd obsession with manbabies. Anyway, I couldn’t help but share it with you. What do you think, would Em fit in?

I can’t believe I missed this when I wrote the post about Volkswagen’s awesome Routan, “have a baby for love, not German engineering” campaign. Maybe they hadn’t come out with the RoutanBabymaker3000 at that point, but yesterday I came across it on this really awesome dad blog I occasionally read called “Noodad.” Basically, the RoutanBabymaker3000 allows you to “make a baby without actually ‘making’ a baby.”
Have a Routan baby with a loved one or a person you hardly even know. Just find the right mate, and make a baby so adorable you just can’t help but love.
I took the liberty of making a Routan baby with James to determine what Baby Lump might look like. It should be interesting to see if our real baby bears a resemblance to his/her Routan baby counterpart, which looks to be a boy. (And I’m hoping we’ll find out fairly soon …)
