    Awwww! What a little cutie! I love the confused, "What are you DOING????" expression. There's a similar photo of baby me giving that same look to my aunt after she changed me out of my baptism gown because I'd thrown up all over it. (I was four weeks old and had a serious medical condition. I think God can cut me some slack).

    Congratulations again on the Bet Red Challenge! Hurray for Tomato Nation! And happy birthday to your mom, Sars. I don't know her but she sounds like she rocks.

    (Oh, and go, Phillies. Yes, I still have faith).

    I thought lions were supposed to be scary! This one just makes me feel sympathetic. Perfect picture.

  • Linda says:

    To me, M.Lionhead always looks a little bit like he's saying, "Um, okay!"

  • J says:

    He's awfully cute, but I'm guessing he liked being a tomato better…

  • Heather says:

    Awww. Thanks for the cute.

  • Jessica says:

    His nose is still in the tomato spirit. Poor sweetie! Was it a cold Halloween?

    My girl was a pumpkin. I forgot to take pictures. Is it wrong to stick her back in the outfit tomorrow for belated pictures?

    I just realized that in college, my little brother had an extraordinary number of friends who looked just like Jayson Werth. Which makes it hard for me to find him hot. But I am crochety and old.

    Master S's general attitude towards us seems to be one of tolerant amusement, which is fortunate.

  • Lauren--NY says:

    Oh, my gosh, what a cutie!

    I see the "tolerant amusement" now that you mention it. Babies are so funny. :)

    @Jessica: it was cold on Halloween here–cold and rainy.

  • Tisha_ says:

    I love that this is posted in Feline Fun Times. Master S. is adorable.

  • Margaret in CO says:

    If anyone that cuuuute had rung my bell, they'd have gotten the whole bowl of candy! Awwwwwwwwwww!

  • Jenn says:

    Maybe he's going for a Cowardly Lion thing?

  • Sandman says:

    "Really? Well, it's against my better judgment, but okay."

  • Deanna says:

    Ohhhh, so precious! Did anyone try to recreate the first scene of The Lion King?
