    Look how that little baby is looking at the President. He is probably thinking if I could vote for him I surely would.

      I wish I could be in that baby’s shoes for a few minutes. It appears that now many people will be clamoring to get their infants in our President’s arms. It’s going to become a rite of passage for our lil’ ones – like a baptism, sort of. I would also wager that many adults (include some from the PL) wouldn’t mind being physically held and cuddled by our president.

    Completely off topic, but seeing the secret service in the second pic – what happened to the quasi old timer agent that seemed to be always within arms length of the President? Vacation, retired, rotated elsewhere?

      is it the bald guy that kind of looks like “Daddy Warbucks” you’re talking about? He was in Ireland with the President.

        TBG, “the bald guy” There may be more than one, but we named him TBG. He usually covers Mrs. O.

      He might be on vacation, I remember reading somewhere that the lead agent stays with the President. I think he has worked too hard to be lead agent to retire before the end of PBO’ s term.

        He is the lead (I can’t remember but I think it’s an Irish name). The guy with the goatee is the other lead and they switch off but the bald man is the main lead. There is also another man who seems like a lead-in-training. He has a slight build and a closely shaved head of gray hair. I don’t think there have been any other changes. BTW, I saw the guy with the goatee very up close last April and he really means business.

      I call him Shadow and yes I’ve noticed his absence. I guessed vacation…hope to see him again soon.

    Yes, we had a name for that agent. What was it? That baby is so cute looking at our president. I think I figured out what holds all the babies attention. It is the way he securely holds them and his voice. I think that they respond to the deep warm voice. I have yet to see a baby cry when in POTUS’s arms. Type in Obama Baby Whisperer on google and all sorts of video links pop up. Chips I love the new You Tube The Obama Diary site. Very classy………….barb……..can’t get my name back on wordpress.

    In the 1st picture the baby looks like he’s thinking “oh lawd whomever you are that is holding me; please hold my head up as I don’t think I can stand up straight anymore ” πŸ˜†

    • June 23, 2011 at 4:58 pm

      Lol, Fred you have a great sense of humor, I love it πŸ˜€

        But seriously, our Great President will go down In History for many, many good things, beside being the First African American President of the United States, but the messages he ran on, like” Change you can believe In”, and then there’s the number one favorite, “Yes we can”, and also will be known as the President, that just have a way with babies πŸ™‚ Now how about that? not bad, I like It :D.

    He’s admiring Obama’s clean shave.

  12. June 23, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    Love the photos. But I can’t help but admire the President’s hair in that second photo. Its so beautiful.

    Forgive me is I’m sounding a bit shallow. but look at it!

  13. June 23, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    Hello, your aweness, the baby says.

  14. June 23, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Also I think the baby is admiring the President’s smile and lovely teeth in the second photo.

  15. June 23, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    When my kids were toddlers, they loved to look at pictures of babies. We need a book with Our President and all the little one’s he fist bumps, holds and responds to and how they respond to him. He can always get their attention and affection.

    When the babies look at the book they can point and go “BABY, BaBy, Obama, OBAMA!!!” πŸ˜† barb

    Baby looks completely enthralled with Obama. I can relate, little baby. He is pretty amazing.
    Obama’s got some kind of special baby love thing going on. It’s become a phenomenon almost. Everyone wants their baby held by this President. Haha—-I just pictured a mom and baby stampede at Obama appearances, sorta like that bridal dress sale day in NY City.

    Africatimes2, I wrote those same sentiments to Pete when I wrote a thank you to him a few months back. I also feel that Pete realizes that the President is constantly thinking of the future that he wants to leave for these precious young ones. I love to see him with these beautiful babies. This one is like,”I am listening, Mr. President, so let us go and get this done.”

    Isn’t there a biblical verse about children and how they approach people? I was a Catholic many many moons ago and I remember a verse that had to do with children but it is eluding me….. Does anyone know if there is such a thing??

  19. June 23, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    I was Catholic also………………Here you go.

    Isaiah 11:6 – The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
