Wordless Wednesday: Baby cardsharp

Alrik anb a2mo playing cards with dad with pacifier

When my parents were visiting, we kept trying to play euchre — and Alrik just kept on winning. Look at those steely eyes concentrating on his hand.



You'll also love this week's hilarious photos on the topic of Toddlers in Trouble over at Natural Parents Network! They'll make you feel better about whatever messes are being made around your house today.

That's a pretty intense stare! He seems impressed by that hand - maybe it isn't too early to start working on his poker face.

Gaby @ Tmuffin said...

You must have a great hand. Look at that expression on his face! Priceless.

BusyWorkingMama said...

He was concentrating very hard! Such a sweet little face :)

Sarah @ Parenting God's Children said...

Freakin adorable. Seriously, I'd pick that kid for a euchre partner any day :)

Momma Jorje said...

Visiting from Natural Parents Network!

Perhaps he is willing the cards to change! Nice shot!

The Budweiser logo makes it all the more perfect ;)

I'm TERRIBLE at Euchre - that's pretty much the face I make when it's my turn too LOL

Terri said...

That's concentration! He's growing so fast - wow!

It must be in the DNA. Watch out Vegas!

Teehee. He looks shocked by that hand. It must have been a good one.

Amy @ Anktangle said...

He's so cute! Also, we MUST play euchre the next time we're together. =)

What an intense stare! I'd be intimidated to play against him. ^.^

That is awesome! I love the look on his face!

melissa said...

I was too distracted by the awesomeness of his chubby cheeks to notice anything else about that picture!

GrammyMouseTails said...

what a cute capture. he sure looks mesmerized. Faythe @GMT

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

@Jenn Collins: Too true. I will start training him!

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

@Momma Jorje: Maybe so. Sam was holding him, and he lost every game, no matter who his partner was. Hey, maybe Alrik was a mole for another player and was signaling Sam's hand! (One pacifier suck for clubs…a little drool for diamonds…)

@Dionna @ Code Name: Mama: They're our classiest cards for sure. The frogs make them timeless.

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

@Amy @ Anktangle: We must! It was my dad who taught us, last summer when we were marooned in Cape Cod on our rainy beach vacation. He grew up playing it in Indiana.

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

@melissa: Well, I can't argue with you there!

Rachael @ The Variegated Life said...

Some say shocked, some say impressed, and I'd say concerned. It seems to me those wide-open eyes *are* his poker face. What could those big eyes mean?

boyzrule said...
