the parent trap

I’ve been ensnared. I’ve fallen in. And I have no desire to climb back out.

My mind is tangled up in the parent trap that keeps insisting that no child ever has been as cute as this one. Ever. Well okay, maybe one, but she’s the exception.

So I’m putting it out there; the phrase every parent whispers at least once:

I know he’s my kid and everything but really, he’s the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen…

He is cahnging already. His face seems to be losing some of the “new baby” chubby cheeks. You probably don’t want to hear this, but he is starting to look a little older…at least in these pictures.

JoeyFebruary 28, 2008 - 2:34 pm

Oh yeah, I forgot to say, he is pretty darn cute! The cutest baby boy I have ever seen!

In the last pic, he looks like he’s saying “boo!” You definitely have a future heartbreaker on your hands. 🙂

just precious!!

michelleFebruary 28, 2008 - 3:37 pm

i would have to agree. (that both your kids are the absolute cutest!) and ive thought that since finding your blog ages ago … and after the baby was born a few weeks ago i say it to myself every time i see a new photo of him.
(you are in BIG trouble with those two!)

AmyFebruary 28, 2008 - 3:45 pm

Well, aside from this one other boy I know 🙂 Ephraim is pretty darn handsome!

JenniferFebruary 28, 2008 - 3:56 pm

You and Brent make cute babies – that’s for darn sure!!

Jennifer O'DonnellFebruary 28, 2008 - 4:43 pm

He really is exceptional!

ssclark01February 28, 2008 - 5:02 pm

I can’t wait to fall in love with him next week!

DaphneFebruary 28, 2008 - 5:17 pm

Great pictures!! Can’t wait to see him (and you) on Saturday!

the larsonsFebruary 28, 2008 - 6:18 pm

He is SO beautiful. I definitely see Brent in him. Of course I think that my girls are the most beautiful things that ever graced the planet, but you know S and E come in close behind.

J.J. KillinsFebruary 28, 2008 - 6:21 pm

well i have to agree with you, he is pretty darned cute!

KimberlyFebruary 28, 2008 - 6:54 pm

Yep, he’s a keeper!

Neurotic Att'yFebruary 28, 2008 - 6:57 pm

He’s pretty beautiful.

AnnFebruary 28, 2008 - 6:57 pm

I love the first one…you can tell he’s thinking something, it’s so sweet, and eye-catching, too. The way his face is turned…I don’t know, but it draws you in!

He’s a cutie! (And go ahead and say it, we all have about our own!)

MeganFebruary 28, 2008 - 7:11 pm

Man, he sure is a cutie!

KristenFebruary 28, 2008 - 7:19 pm

yeah. He’s pretty hard to top 🙂

Jane HatsyFebruary 28, 2008 - 7:47 pm

Wow-I think I just might have to agree with! This baby is just gorgeous! I love the way he is looking at you! Pure sweetness!

KatieFebruary 28, 2008 - 7:54 pm

Yep, he’s beautiful. Baby Gap model here he comes!

MeganFebruary 28, 2008 - 8:01 pm

he’s definitely a cutie…almost as cute as my kid. 🙂

JeanelleFebruary 28, 2008 - 8:07 pm

He’s just beautiful!

WendyFebruary 28, 2008 - 9:34 pm

Hey Erin, I will have to say he is pretty darn cute. Your children are gorgeous. Look at all of us who think so!!
Since you check your blog more than your email… I sent an email about Baracuda Bazaar (sp?). Thanks again for sharing!

loriFebruary 28, 2008 - 9:37 pm

He looks just like you

Cathy BolanderFebruary 28, 2008 - 10:10 pm

Your children really are cute & very well photographed I must say. All us mamas think our babies are the cutest.

rpstegmanFebruary 28, 2008 - 10:34 pm

i can’t believe how big baby E is getting! he’s so, so handsome!!!

JennFebruary 28, 2008 - 11:32 pm

He truly is beautiful. It’s his eyes and lips. I have thought that since you first started taking pictures of him!

AnonymousFebruary 28, 2008 - 11:38 pm

So yeah- most moms think that they are the proud owner of a most beautiful child. If I am not agreeing, I will say something like “yes, he/she is just precious” and leave it at that. If the child looks like Buddy-Ro I would be inclined to say that I agree with his mom. He is B*E*A*U*T*I*F*U*L Erin!

Joey, I’m ignoring your first comment. 🙂

Does anyone know who said this quote:

“There is only one beautiful child in the world, and every mother has it.”

Truer words have never been spoken.

The quote you are asking about is a Chinese Proverb.

He is a cutie!
