The Cuteness (If I Do Say So Myself)

So, did you go to work today? Did you enjoy it? Me either. It wasn't quite as bad as I imagined it would be...but it wasn't a carnival ride either (or, if it was, it was the crappiest carnival ride ever). Know what you need? A heavy dose of The Cuteness.

After Beth read a story to Mia on Sunday, she flipped over on her tummy and seemed so happy, I had to grab a camera. I took tons and edited them in color and black and white. Check out the Flickr site for more in both black & white and color.

What cute pics! If it makes you feel any better, today was my first day back at work full time after eye surgery in November. NOT FUN. :)

is she the perfect end to a sucky day or what?
nice job on the baby, you two.

Posted by: kara at January 3, 2006 9:16 PM

She is a doll, that's for sure. That'll cure the horrid workday in an instant :)

I had a feeling that if we looked up "Cutest" in the dictionary, Mia's picture would be right there beside BabyJuJu's!
My day was less awful than expected too. Course, I doubt that it could possibly have been as bad as I anticipated...

Posted by: JuJu's Mom at January 3, 2006 10:18 PM

Wow, she's got some really amazing eyes.

I didn't go to work but I am in sore need of the cuteness. Excuse me while I go nibble on Mia's arms.

Stop already...I can't handle much more (cuteness)... Good god she's adorable.

Posted by: Marilyn at January 3, 2006 11:19 PM

She really does have the sweetest lil' face.

Posted by: Y at January 3, 2006 11:52 PM

Awwwww. I can't believe how big she's getting!

Look at those CHEEKS!! How cute!! And little pudgy baby arms could possibly be the most adorable thing ever!!

Happy New Year Cactus Fish Family!

Aww, poor little darling has to chew on her hands because she has no toys...hehe. She's sooo cute!

I love the one near the end of the set that just seems to say "OK, I've had enough of this tummy thing!"

Posted by: Jaycie at January 4, 2006 6:11 AM

Shes adorable. Good genes make beautiful babies.

Posted by: Angelia at January 4, 2006 7:59 AM

My goodness! She's completely, utterly scrumptious. How you do not eat her up on a daily basis, I don't know.

Posted by: erika at January 4, 2006 8:58 AM

I think you may have a future model on your hands - she's absolutely adorable and the camera loves her!

Posted by: Beth in StL at January 4, 2006 10:13 AM

She IS getting big! Wow! Those eyes are almost dangerously cute. Thanks for sharing her with us!

Posted by: Julie at January 4, 2006 10:35 AM

She is absolutely beautiful!!! And I can't believe how much she's starting to look like Beth.

Posted by: ava at January 4, 2006 12:02 PM

Isn't it illegal to be that cute???

Posted by: Pixie at January 4, 2006 12:48 PM

She is just so cute! She is looking older now too, the next months will be so much fun...what am I talking about, it is all fun!

Gah, she's growing so fast. Seems like she was just born yesterday...

Posted by: wlfldy at January 6, 2006 8:49 AM

I was trying to think of something witty to say, but all I could think of was 'OMG how cute!'That was just what I needed to perk up my Friday, thanks for sharing.
