    Your kids are freaking adorable. Pretty sure if I handed mine a lemon she’d beat me with it. She’s like that when it comes to trying foods she doesn’t like. It doesn’t end pretty.

  • UtahMom

    Marlo is the cutest girl baby on the entire planet. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful moments with us.

  • bobita

    At least you can cross scurvy off the list of things you need to worry about…

  • denice

    she’s taking turn lemons into lemonade very seriously, isn’t she?

  • d3 voiceworks

    isn’t it amazing how happy and smiley they are at the start … then it morphs into moods and crabaliciousness. i know–i have a 14 mo. old (boy) and a 6 y.o. (girl)
    i’m going to try to channel my own infant happiness right now!

  • blackpanther

    I love how she curls as if to hold herself in right before she laughs. That could never get old.

  • mrsdrmatlock

    Oh for crying out loud people, it’s her baby teeth! decay away, you’ll loose those suckers in a few years anyway!! ;)

  • shangyle

    Can we please have a Marlo calendar this year, either instead of a Chuck calendar or in addition to it?

  • KA

    It’s official: Heather and Jon have the cutest baby in the world. Now I’m really not having children.

    *sigh* Thanks a lot.

    :o )

  • Pamela504

    Criminally Cute!

  • mandi v

    That is sooooo cute!

  • Passementerie

    I saw a video on youtube where a baby was given a slice of lemon and curled up with the most hilariously horrified reaction. Naturally, my first instinct was to give a slice of lemon to my own, then 7mo, baby and see what happened, but naturally (like Marlo) she loved it and still happily sucks away on slices of lemon. Serves me right, really.

  • freckleface

    Oh my gosh! That is the CUTEST thing ever, her little face and how she scrunches up her little body with laughter, omg. Omg!

  • stargirlmia89

    That smile at the end was SO ADORABLE!!!

  • sweetpotatopie

    I’m driving straight to your house and poking my fingers in those little dimples. Nevermind that I live several hundred miles away.

    She is seriously one of the most precious babies I have ever seen.

  • Em

    What a precious smile. She’s such a happy baby!

  • runjew

    Hi. Broken record here. Love this video. Marlo is so CUTE.
    How do you keep yourself from nibbling on her cheeks?!

  • Bratfink

    Once Bratfink Jr. discovered pickles there was no holding that child back. Anything dilled was hers. To this day [she's 31] she drinks the pickle juice. Must be her dad’s side of the family.

    I just want to eat Marlo up, she’s so delightful! At that age my grandson was taking apart the plasma tv. [True story.]

  • PunkinP

    I have seriously watched this like 30 times now.

  • princessleena

    I loved nomming on lemon wedges when I was little! May parents rarely let me do it though for fear of ruining my teeth.

  • kcbelles

    Too damn cute. My younger brother was a sucker (pun intended) for lemons. He also ate dog kibble and sticks of butter, but then we always knew he was weird :o ) And just so no-one worries; he’s a loving papa of 5 now, doin’ just fine.

  • solaana

    Shenanigans, Armstrong. That child cannot be real. Knowing I share a universe with her makes up for the fact that I also share it with losers like George Bush and Scott Baio.

  • MelissaJ

    oh my goodness…she is adorable!

    i want one just like her!

  • Krys72599

    She is SO stinkin’ cute!!!
    Sorry, she deserves caps AND exclamation points!!

  • linuxchik

    LOL, that’s effin awesome! pickle juice is great after a shot of tequila, too, as well.

  • RudeAwakening

    That is SO cute! Love her smile!

  • Aunt_Lala

    My 18-month old nephew, John Jr, LOVES LOVES LOVES lemons. He loves limes, too, but that kid eats lemons like it’s his job. I took my sis-in-law out to dinner one night, and Jr, too, and he actually reached over from his high-chair and took the lemon out of my tea so he could eat it.

  • Lucy mom

    Marlo is adorable – I was watching this and thought I saw some similarities to Leta as well. Lemons are the food of the gods for kids. At a restaurant many years ago I handed the lemon slice from my water to Lucy and she promptly ate it – rind and all- with no change in expression. It kind of freaked me out but she wasn’t bothered by it.

  • wonderchris

    The cuteness of Marlo hugging the lemon and her smile is just OVERLOAD.

    What a preciously sweet (& sour) video!

  • msmimi

    OH MY GOD, I PROBABLY WON’T, but I could totally steal that baby!!! And related to your photo earlier this week—I would’ve sworn you tweaked her eyes a bit before you posted her pics. Seriously, how have you not just gobbled her up yet???

    Oh yeah, and my 6 yr old girl has been eating lemons since she was about 9 months old!

  • manda82panda

    My son did that too. He loved lemons, rind and all. Now, at 18 mo, he likes chili peppers and ginger, which is fine with me =) She is so cute. Don’t you just love how you expect them to be shocked and disgusted, but they end up being happy and adorable?

  • ClaraBelle

    Heather, I seriously had to take the time to register and say that Marlo has to be one of the cutest freaking kids I’ve ever seen.

    How do you not gobble her up constantly?

  • geekybookworm

    Oh god, I’ve been killed by the cuteness. The dimples, the smile, seriously, how do you guys do anything at all with such amazing kids?

  • LaurieML

    My sister used to suck on whole lemons constantly. And she turned out to be the difficult one…

  • MPyrzynski

    I am now in a cuteness coma. You should post this world-wide. Everyone would be so entranced by her that we might achieve world peace.

    Marlo is absolutely adorable. When she scrunches up her shoulders to smile, I want to scrunch mine up too!

    She’s a beautiful child!

  • jennyfromtheshwa

    She is all sorts of frickin cute.

  • Lily Hydrangea

    This is so fun to watch! Such a happy girl. Thanks for sharing.

  • eventide82

    Holy cats, she could not be more adorable!

  • amandajkr

    Oh dear God, the smile on that kid!! She is darling.

  • InfamousQBert

    i was totally that kid! my mom shoved a lemon in my mouth at a restaurant, probably at about this age, and i was HOOKED! like, up through middle school i remember getting a plate of lemons any time we out to eat. awesome!

  • Star

    My son is a month younger, and I have to say that he and Marlo are soulmates! Motoring around way too soon, grabby hands, eating anything and everything. The food dash n’ climb is a nightly dance. He’s my first so I thought all babies were like this.

    If he ever starts talking about moving to Utah, well, let’s meet up at the bar after the ceremony.

    ETA: Oh and I forgot, I gave him a drop of lime juice to see if it worked for hiccups. He smiled!

  • InfamousQBert

    also, properly nurtured, this can turn into a super power where she can impress people with her ability to eat REALLY sour things without flinching. much as i did in college. it’s a great 3 in the morning drunk at the 7-11 kind of trick.

  • Jen

    Good Lord that’s cute.

  • FunMommyK

    My son used to beg and plead for the lemons from my drinks. Then he would give them a good suck, make a horrified face and throw them back into my drink. That is SO not cool.

  • Dawn56

    Dying.From.The.Cute.Over.Here.

    That scrunch-up with the grin at the end. Oy.

  • LaLaBoo

    The shoulder shrug is killing me! Reminds me of the Lion in The Wizard of Oz- “Shucks folks- I’m speechless” TOO DANG CUTE!

  • mandypants

    Hahahaha! My son loves lemons and never makes the cute sour face. My daughter on the other hand makes the gag face with all fruit and the half lidded gagging sour face with strawberries. Her face may implode if I give her a lemon. I think my baby is the cutest ever, but my word, if I ever happen to run into Marlo here in SLC, I may just eat her up!! I am not sure how you can stand having something that cute around! :)

  • SerenityNOW

    I’m sorry, but this kid is so freakin’ adorable, I can’t stand it. My friend just said “What the hell are you smiling at like that?!”
    Heather, you are so blessed.

  • Coelecanth

    Why are you laughing woman? Scurvy is no joke, Marlo knows this.

  • stalkingsarah

    That is a crazy kid! I wonder if she’ll continue to do it when she’s older. My mom and I both love eating lemon rinds as adults.

    In other news, her laughing face is off the charts adorable.
