This is a story about babies in wigs! My most favorite topic there is. As I mentioned previously, if I ever have a baby, it will be made to wear a variety of wigs, depending on my/its mood. I don’t care if you think that’s strange, it’s what I’ll need to do to ensure that I am the best parent I can be. Anyhow, I am here to tell you about what is being called an “epic baby hair scandal.” The very best kind of scandal there is!
The blog Mommy Shorts held a photo contest for “Most Epic Head of Baby Hair,” and the winner, Layla, dubbed “Baby Annette Funicello,” was accused by sore loser mommies on Facebook of wearing a wig. Layla’s mother was outraged by the accusation and took to the social media site to defend her baby’s epic hair. Keep reading »
I don’t usually get too into babies/animals/baby animals, but fuck it, I’m a human being. I like babies in wigs, owls with mops and things with fluffy faces sometimes. I’m adding babies in mugs to the list of approved cute things. The “baby mugging” meme was started by Mommy Shorts as a way to help people heal after the Boston Bombings. I don’t know about you, but these pictures are healing me. You can mug your baby too (that sounds wrong) and post it with the #babymugging tag.[The Daily Dot]
Oh, you were thinking of naming your son “Anal,” and you live in New Zealand? Too bad! The country’s Internal Affairs department vetoed the name, along with 76 others, claming they were inappropriate, bizarre or offensive. A sampling of some of the verboten names?

Yes, somebody wanted to name their child the punctuation symbol for “period.” Keep reading »
Your little nugget still shits her diapers, but that doesn’t mean she still isn’t being prepared for the most important role she’ll ever play in life: future bride. It’s never too early to start thinking about that ring on your finger. Seriously, Zulily.com, what are you thinking? A crystal-encrusted onesie advertising a newborn baby as a bride-to-be is all the proof I need the wedding industrial complex has gone haywire. [Jezebel]
Tressa and Manuel Montalvo had a huge bundle of joy delivered to them this past Valentine’s Day — Tressa gave birth to two sets of identical twins. That’s right, not quadruplets, though there are technically four babies, but two sets of identical twins. At once. What are the odds of something like this happening? Really, really slim. Around 1 in 800,000 births are quadruplets. About 1 in 70 million are born as two sets of identical twins. The babes, named Ace, Blaine, Cash and Dylan (yup, ABCD), were delivered prematurely at 31 weeks and are still in intensive care, but should be home soon.
The two sets of twins will join Tressa and Manuel’s first son, who is two-and-a-half. I won’t pretend to be super excited about ever getting pregnant (childbirth really freaks me out), but this may just send me over the edge. That is one too many sets of twins for me. [NPR]
