Well, You Know How Much I Love Babies

I know. I know.

I should not be here. I said as much this afternoon, but I've got to share this.

I've seen this clip touted at a number of websites in the past few days -- American Papist, Faith and Family Live!, and Facebook to name a few -- and I clicked past it numerous times before curiosity finally got the better of me.

I'm so glad I did because it really made me smile. Go ahead, click play, you know you want to . . .

After seeing this, I was reminded of a few things:

1. Babies the world over are ding dang cute.

2. Babies the world over do the same things. Those two babies at the very beginning? That is Sally and Bun every. stinkin'. day.

3. I love to see mothers looking at their babies, and I love to see babies grabbing at their mother's hair.

4. Compared to the baby in Mongolia, my children are not outside enough.

And now back to my regularly scheduled program of wrapping and freaking out about all the stuff I've forgotten to do.

Carry on, my friends.


  1. Looks great and very cute! Got me to smile even though I am cranky b/c: a. I am trying to do to much and b. L had a cold and now I have a sore throat. But I did enjoy cuddling and comforting him all weekend. This is more of an email thana comment! Haha...bye now!! :)

  2. I too had skipped over it, but I'm so glad I watched it. Babies are cute everywhere and I can also relate to that opening sequence. :)

  3. Oh, that is so sweet! I loved so many parts of it.
    The goat drinking the bathwater at the end - our collie did that when I was a baby.
    Seeing the babies outside, around farm animals, lapping at the groundwater/stream... reminded me that we need to let our babies live and experience life.

    My heart is smiling. Thanks!


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
