Rule of Cuteness #44: Ears at 9 and 3 o’clock are cute

Sender-inner Amy S. and her cat Sebastian bring us our last new Rule of Cuteness for 2009:  If your ears point at 9 and 3 o’clock, you’re cute.  And if your ears point at 10, 2 and 4 o’clock, it’s time for a brisk, refreshing Dr Pepper!

Mahir: The Early Years

Welcome to my crib!  I kiss you! I like many activates: gurgling, crawling and the smearing strained beets on the flokati rug. Now you will please to making the alteration of the diaper that is much poopy, thankings.

Jenni S., we apologize in advance for the comments below.
