When photos of 23-month-old Beau and his pup, Theo, snuggling together during naptime went viral in 2013, you could almost hear the collective awww from the Internet. After all, there's nothing cuter than a tow-headed toddler and his tiny puppy. Well, except, of course, a brand-new baby.
About four months ago, Jessica Shyba gave birth to daughter Evangeline (or Evvie, for short), turning the dynamic duo (#theoandbeau) into an insanely photogenic trio (#theoandevie). Evvie is already napping alongside Theo and Beau, and Shyba, the brains behind the blog Momma's Gone City, has once again captured the cuteness for us. We first spotted the heartwarming pics on Today.com, but check out plus the whole batch on the Momma's Gone City Instagram. (Talk about cute overload!)
We have yet to run across a picture that doesn't make us smile: There's the trifecta, sleeping soundly after a morning of playing dress-up as Beau wears his doggie tie; dreaming of their next adventure while cuddling thisclose together; or -- my favorite -- dozing off in the same arms-up-feet-together sleeping position. Just look at the photos below!
(Side note: Although super cute, these pictures don't exactly jibe with the AAP's recommendations. Remember to remove soft bedding, toys, and pillows from your kiddo's sleep area, and always have baby sleep on her back. But you probably already knew that!)
As much as I adore these photos, I've got to say I'm more impressed that this mom of three kids and two pets even has the time to snap them, come up with cute captions, and post them online. How about you -- have you found the time to take any Instagram-worthy shots of your babe?
