Unpopular opinion, but one of my favorite parts about Super Bowl Sunday is watching the Puppy Bowl — on a separate TV, of course. That and looking at OMG-adorable babies decked out in football gear to represent their parents’ favorite teams.
If you’ve been living under a parenting rock like I have, you may not know that Super Bowl XLIX Sunday is coming up on Feb. 1, 2015. Get your butt in gear, start pinning delicious buffalo chicken ranch dip on Pinterest and check out these unreasonably cute babies to get the party started.
And if you happen to be the parent of a small baby during football season, this is your chance — dress that baby up and represent. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of having a baby, besides procreation and love and the like, is that they will sit there like a cute blob for hours.
Throw on your favorite sports team’s onesie, add a football beanie and prop your baby up in a Bumbo before your Super Bowl party. As your guests arrive, they will ooh and ahh over how cute your baby looks at each long-anticipated commercial break. You heard it here first.
