Are we still judging mommybloggers for posting photos of their kids crying and/or pissed off and/or covered in jam/unidentified schmutz? Probably. So go ahead and put on your best judgeypants because I will never apologize for how much I love this photo:

Photo (29)

OH I AM SO SORRY, CHILD OF MINE, CHILD WHO IS INEXPLICABLY HALF AWAKE AND STANDING UP AT MIDNIGHT AND APPEARS TO BE COMPLAINING ABOUT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT YOU ARE STANDING UP? IS THE FLASH BOTHERING YOU? DO YOU FIND THAT ANNOYING

If it makes you feel any better, I showed it to Ike this morning and he said,  "Baby! Baby saaaaad." And then he laughed and laughed. Because we're both assholes.

(Though hey, at least his hair still looks cute in that photo.)

(And I would know, as I take approximately four dozen pictures of the back of his head every day in a futile attempt to fully capture its pettable, haywire majesty.)

perfect pictures!

This may very well be my favorite thing ever. That first photo is absolutely perfect.

pictures like the first one (which, omg couldn't get any better) will be waaaaay more fun when he's graduating high school than any posey smiley shot you may get. forget the haters and their judgey-pants

I love this picture! So awesome- lots of personality shining through. I think I need to start carrying around my camera to capture my little one's awesome night scrunchy faces.

Jen

Love, love, love!!!!!

nicole

THAT is a perfect meme photo

Cara

There you go again, making me burst out laughing while I covertly try to read your blog at work. You should meme that picture.

Jean

Best phota evah! Never ever delete it and please periodically repost so we can enjoy :)

michele

I predict that in about 18 years there will be another very similar photo of Ike but instead of a crib it will be a college dorm room! priceless!

Corie

Perfect picture!! And I love the fact that you had not one, but TWO baby dolls on the bar!

Melanie

💛💙💜💚❤💗

Stephanie Cox

Totally awesome!! Love that hair.

Suzy Q

HAAAAAA! I love it!

Sheila

NEVER stop posting pics of your boys...please.
is it just me or does the first one look JUST like Jason??

Anne

Ohhhhh. I love this. I can imagine my kid laughing at a photo of him like this too.

Danielle Menona

Hey Amy,
Ha, love this! Have you thought about turning your website into an App??

Jill

I love these pictures. His hair is AWESOME!!

Tallulah Eulallie

Yep, Ike has toy box hair. (When your doll spends a couple of weeks at the bottom of the toy box, the result is Toy Box Hair: That matted-down, yet frizzed up state that synthetic doll hair gets. I should know; I've had it every single morning of my goddamned life. There is no cure.)

Kristen

I desperately want to know what kind of camera you use to capture those perfect golden curls.

Kelley

i love it. best picture of the day.

Anna

Hilarious!

Roberta

Clearly, I am also an asshole because I am laughing like crazy at that photo. It is so full of awesome. Assholes unite!

Jess

I keep looking at pictures of his hair and thinking "It will be a sad day when they cut those curls off."

Kelly

That photo should be integral in your defense of waking him up early as a teenager. When he complains about being awakened, bust out the picture and post it on whatever fancy social networking site is popular in the future to remind him that he used to do the same thing to you for NO GOOD REASON.

annemarie

I am cracking up so hard at that picture.

sarah

Beautiful picture! I definitely agree with others who say you should meme the photo :)

Korinthia Klein

Man, those EYES, though. Peeking over that sippy cup. That is a killer combination that golden hair and those super dark eyes.

Barb

He is adorable! And we have that baby at our house - for my grandchildren.

Plano Mom

I let my son's hair grow until he was almost in kindergarten, for the exact same reason.

Maren

Ahhh! I do that too, taking ridiculous amounts of pictures of the back and side of Hank's head, trying to adequately capture how freaking awesome his hair is. I also spend ridiculous amounts of time batting my husband's hands away from his head as he makes cutting motions with his fingers. NEVAHHHHHHHH!
