    Am I the only one who thinks the kid on the left looks like a young Anderson Cooper. Look at pics of Anderson when he was little and I swear that kid is a dead ringer.

  2. Sam says:

    They actually look quite dapper, it’s the hair cuts that give the game away.

  3. The mom of this picture says:

    the little one is a girl!

    • Cindy says:

      Of course the little one is a girl….that looks like a boutique purchased sweater with ribbons on the shoulders to me!!!!

  4. jo anne says:

    the little one, is a baby girl! shes so little and doesnt have a lot of hair

  5. Becca says:

    I think the littlest one is a boy, and I’m beginning to agree that the boa thing is a blanket. My son has one of those “no sew” blankets and if he wraps it around him that’s what the ends look like….

  6. Joyce says:

    Oh, and he has a matching pocket hankie too!

  7. Joyce says:

    Oh wow, I’ve looked at this pic more than once and I just noticed that the middle child’s suit is double breasted. You can’t get fashionier than that! They are so cute!

  8. Jaynne says:

    I’m laughing so hard i’m tearing! Buahahahahahaha!

  9. Tred54 says:

    This one made me snort milk out my nose. And that still wasn’t as awkward as this pic.

  10. laura says:

    It’s a blankie. I remember those from the 1980′s- they were a “no sew” project. I guess if your choice is a smiling kid with a hideous blankie, or a crying one without, you just let him have the blankie.

  11. meri says:

    I like how the kid on the left is kind of crossing his fingers. Maybe he thought he could wish himself out of this photo.

    • babel says:

      noticed the exact same thing. Crossing his fingers at his future. WOnder what he thinks now when watching the cute pic. i am sure he is the cuttest of the bunch!

  12. Tracy says:

    Okay … I’ll agree with the rest of you because I don’t like to rock the boat … but I thought the little one was a girl.

  13. Rick D says:

    We’ve got the haircut, we’ve got whatever has been draped over the little guy – and we’ve got that double-breasted suit, which makes the kid on the right look like a young fogey. I wonder if he’s also wearing spats?

  14. Suz says:

    I am a teacher, and think this picture would make a great writing prompt, e.g. “I was on my way to the photography studio when….(fill it in with your own imagination).

  15. d.Lee says:

    I am waiting for an answer to the above questions too…. double the STAT

  16. Marie says:

    He’s the only one who seems happy in this picture, though.

  17. genni says:

    I think the little one is a girl, and I think those are ribbons. Late 80′s saw this trend–my sister and all her friends were part of the age that thought ribbons, fabric glue, and a shirt were a good idea.

  18. eriktrips says:

    I think the little guy looks fabulous, and it seems clear that he thinks so too.

  19. armchair hero says:

    What we are witnessing here is the rare “bowl cut mullett.” It takes a special person to be able to that cut off. . .and I still haven’t seen anyone who could.

  21. SoCal Mark says:

    Sweet mullet!

  22. Lisa Shafer says:

    So, did little brother’s tie get caught in the shredder just before the family went to the portrait studio?

    And that is quite the mullet there, isn’t it?

  23. MrsFun says:

    Need a back story. STAT.

  24. kat says:

    I..just..don’t know what to say. It’s just all around awkward. Where to start…

  25. sarah says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. This is my most favorite thing.

  26. Ellen says:

    I am RACKING my brain, trying to imagine the circumstances under which this picture was taken…. I got nothing…

  27. Dy says:

    Or a mullet. Don’t forget the business mullet.

  28. Debbie R says:

    This is the sweetest awkward picture ever.

  29. Pat says:

    As a mother of three sons, I totally understand this picture.

  30. L. Bartlett says:

    A nice compliment to the mullets.

  31. Scully says:

    What is that child wearing???

  32. ScoutC says:

    The hair says, “Business in front, party in back,” but the outfits say just the opposite! What is the little one wearing??? And why???
