Lovey Dovey All the Time

Little L. hit the five month mark on Sunday.

He and I were talking about what we should say about month five yesterday while the other kids were at school. What? I'm going to discuss these matters with the dog?

"You're a drooler. You're a spitter. And now you're almost a sitter," I said. Then of course, I was stuck with "The Joker" in my head the rest of the day.

So, here, with my apologies to the Steve Miller Band (who am I kidding? I don't really care about offending them) and to you, here is a little musical tribute to the cutest thing I've ever seen. Okay, okay. Really just an excuse to show you lots of pictures from this month.

Some people call you the third baby yeah
Some call me the gangster of laundry
Some people call me Mommy
Cause' I speak of the pompetous of love

People talk about you baby
Say I'm doin' you wrong, doin' you wrong
But don't you worry, baby, don't worry
someday you'll nap at home

Cause' you're a grabber
You're a grinner

I'm a lover
and you're a sitter.
Soon we'll be playing music in the sun

You're a spitter
and a raspberry blower
You're a mid-night waker;
I get to hold you all day long.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
You're the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your dimples,
you just want to chew your feet.
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey,
lovey dovey all the time.

Ooh wee baby,
I sure show you a good time
Cause you're a roller and a watcher
I'm your rocker;
you dig your saucer
and that toy that plays you
music on the run.

You're a laugher
you're a paper crumpler
and still a mid-night waker
But you are sure glad to see someone.


Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
You're the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your dimples,
you just want to chew your feet.
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey,
lovey dovey all the time.

Oh my word, this is the cutest post! I don't think the band will be offended, and if they are, well...too fricking bad. Little L. is just getting cuter every day!

Maybe you could ask for the rights to the song and put this on youtube...it would go viral!

I was lovey dovey with this post as soon as I read the title. I have always been a Steve Miller Band fan so I was all, "Yes, from that song. Awesome." Then, I read your song and I was all, "One of the best posts ever." So completely delighted -- "Midnight waker" "I'm your rocker" "want to chew your feet" . . . could go on and on.

Your little L could not be any sweeter. I assume N. is offering him the final rose of the evening -- how could she not?

That was awesome! And now your version of that song is going to be in my head all night. Pleasantly so, I must say.

He is awfully cute! And five months! Wow!

From a fellow gangster of laundry, that song rocked the casbah. Is it wrong to mix decades and song allusions? Well, I don't care. Loved this!!
