the cute baby conundrum

Tim: How do we know…like KNOW…we have a cute baby?

Me: Because we do. We have the most adorable baby in the entire world.

Tim: You’re his mom. Of course you’ll say that. I mean…how do we know other people really think he’s cute?

Me: Because they’ve said so.

Tim: But…who ever tells someone their baby isn’t cute?

Me: But…then why would people who’ve never even met us say he’s cute?

Tim: Because no one ever tells you that your baby fell off the ugly tree.

Me: OMG. You can’t say that about a baby!

Tim: You’re making my point for me.

Me: I’m just saying.

Tim: Not ALL babies are magazine cover worthy…so how do we know Kellan is really cute versus people just saying it?

Me: Umm…because they’ve said so.

Tim: You’re missing my point.

Me: That he’s obviously cute?

Tim: No….that we’ll never know if he really IS a cute baby versus people just telling us he’s cute when he really isn’t…

Me: But he IS!

Tim: To us.

Me: To everyone!

Tim: You’ll never be able to know that for sure…since nobody would ever tell someone their baby isn’t cute. Are you following?

Me: But…everyone – even people we’ve never met – say he’s cute…so, obviously, he must be cute to more than just you and me.

Tim: [face palm]

    I think people just wouldn’t say anything if they thought he wasn’t cute. I mean, we don’t HAVE to say he is cute on your blog but we choose to becuase ohmygodheissodamncute for real! Tim, you have a cute kid. No ugly tree branch hit him:) The internet and strangers promise:)

    I’ve never even met you so you can take my opinion as being totally unbiased… Your son is freaking adorable! 🙂

    Okay, I’m brutally honest when it comes to baby cuteness, and have been known to piss off more than a few people. But Kellan? Totally cute. You guys did good.

    Okay, so I’m brutally honest when it comes to kids (I’ve been known to piss off more than a few people) … but Kellan? Totally cute. Good job.

    If he wasn’t cute people would not go out of their way to say he is. They’d say nothing. When given the opportunity most people will not go out of their way to lie.

    are you ready for the truth? you better sit down for this one…

    sit down

    no really, sit down!

    ok, here’s the truth: kellan IS cute. i only heard you talk first time on that you tube clip so how tainted can my opinion be? i’ve seen ugly babies and i have had a “ughhhhh….aaaaaaah!”-reaction in front of the mom of the ugly baby. so i would tell you if, trust me. i’m german, i’m blunt. but kellan is cute! those wrinkles, those eyes – he’s cute!

    magazine cover cute? he needs more hair. but come on, he’s only 5 weeks old, he can wear a wig! ❤

    Ok, Ima be real with you. All babies are precious but it doesn’t mean they are all cute. Tim is right, NO ONE in their right mind would say a baby is not cute to the mother!
    We have a code (yes we are horrid). If you hear any of my clan/friends say, “Wow, cute baby, he/she has adorable ears!”, thats the kiss of death. When you cant find anything else to compliment, compliment the ears.
    Please note, I couldnt tell you what Kellan’s ears look like because I never make it past the adorableness that is him. You’re good momma and tell Tim all is well. No one is lying. 😉

    If anyone ever just says, “it’s a baby” that’s not a good thing. I think Kellan is a cutiepie!
