When I started Baby Mugging on Tuesday, I had no idea it would become A THING. Well, now all you have to do is check the #babeinamug and #babymugging hashtags on instagram to see how quickly baby mugshots have spread. 

Of course, some people who missed my original baby mugging instructions on facebook, wondered how we had all shrunk our children down to drinkable size, so I'll reiterate.

There is no photoshop, trickery or smart phone app necessary. Just follow the simple steps below.

BABY MUGGING: 
Step 1) Put your baby on the floor. 
Step 2) Hold a mug in front of your baby.
Step 3) Take a photo and post it on the Mommy Shorts fanpage or tag @mommyshorts with #babeinamug or #babymugging on Instagram.

Here are some of my favorite baby mugshots from the hundreds(!) posted in the last three days…

 Or as Holly Paz captioned her photo above: "I can grow humans".

I'm guessing nobody really cares about my original promise of a Mommy Shorts mug for one of the participants, but I'm giving one away anyway. 

The winner (randomly selected from both the entries on facebook and instagram) is… @katy_burg!

Congratulations! You are now required to take a "Babe in a Mommy Shorts Mug" pic. (Well, I can't force you but it would be nice.)

Please continue to take #babeinamug pics and post them on the Mommy Shorts fanpage or tag me (@mommyshorts) on instagram. They make me happy and I'll continue to feature more of them here.
