    Busy Philipps has an adorable way of describing how her 8-month-old baby moves. "Cricket is doing something that we're calling -- it's not crawling -- on-land swimming," Philipps told Us magazine. "Because she's moving, she's not crawling. Like she's swimming on land, and you cannot leave her alone. She'll get to where she wants to go by swimming on land. She's really fast and she's on the move." Aww, most of you with kids know exactly what she means. It's that floppy form of travel babies do. "Swimming on land" is a clever way to put it.

    Babies have all sorts of crazy movements that require their own terminology -- here's 10 more.

    The world of parent oversharing has reached a whole new level -- or maybe just a new low. It depends on how you feel about this news. Someone has invented an app that enables your baby to take a selfie. I guess it makes noises, and your baby is supposed to crawl over, all curious, and then push the right buttons to take a selfie. CLEARLY this is something the world needed, and I'm glad someone finally stepped up and invented this app. There's just one thing that concerns me. What about all the awkward selfies? How do you prevent your kid from posting an unflattering photo? I think you know what I'm talking about.

    We all know that Gisele Bunchen has clear opinions as to the kinds of things a good mother does. She has been very vocal about the fact that all women should breastfeed ... for at least six months. However, it doesn't look like safety is high on her list. The mom took her 1-year-old daughter out for an ATV ride in Costa Rica yesterday without a helmet.

    You know those crabby people who complain about too many photos of babies on the Internet? I am not one of them. Show me the babies, everyone! But I have to admit, my new favorite baby photo is the one that happens purely by accident: The baby photobomb.

    A baby photobomb is when you're taking a photo of someone/something else, and a baby ends up in the frame unintentionally. I just feel like it's such an apt visual metaphor for what babies do in real life: Interrupt and intrude. But hey, you don't have to get all philosophical to enjoy a good baby photobomb!

    When it comes to selfies, Kim and Khloe Kardashian are probably the queens -- followed closely by pre-hospitalized Amanda Bynes. Even President Obama is getting in on the act -- though unfortunately he chose to do it at Nelson Mandela's funeral. Not cool, prez. But selfies have been criticized for being self-indulgent, narcissistic, and let's face it, freaking boring. Not, however, these selfies! These selfies were done by children who happened to be left alone with a cell phone. These kids are too young to be narcissists -- though it does make one wonder if selfies are a biological impulse, given how quickly these tykes took to it. Here are 7 cute selfies from camera-ready kids.

    Being a mother is hard, hard, hard, and no one knows this better than Teen Mom Kailyn Lowry. She is an immensely loving and involved parent to both her son Isaac with her ex-boyfriend and her newborn baby son Lincoln as well. And when her husband Javi tweeted out to the world his appreciation of his wife, the world sighed a collective "awwww."

    It's really, really sweet.

    But what he said? Is one of those things that gets under my mom skin. Here's his tweet:

    Not that you need an excuse to look at a cute photo of a baby, but you have to look at these cute photos of a baby. They're "selfies" of Holly Madison's baby Rainbow, taken by her husband Pasquale Rotella. And they're screamingly adorable. Forget that I'm supposed to be rolling my eyes at the very idea of staged baby selfies. I don't even care about that. These photos are just too cute.

    "I guess you are never too young to take a selfie!" Rotella captioned on Holly's blog. He actually posed Rainbow with her arm out in both photos. How did he do that? And best of all, no duck lips. Just those huge, baby blue eyes and an open mouth. You guys, this could become a trend.

    It's one of those videos that seem hilarious until you actually start thinking about it. Babies riding Roombas -- a compilation video happening now on YouTube. What's not to love? It's shot after shot of babies sitting placidly atop moving Roombas. I don't know that everyone will find this video funny, but when I first saw it, I thought it had a kind of droll, absurd appeal. And then someone asked a super-boring but necessary question: Is that even safe?

    Congratulations! It's your first Halloween as a parent. You know what this means? For the first time since you were a kid you get to go trick-or-treating again. Candy for everyone, yayyyy!

    What's that? Babies are too young to eat candy? Well of course, silly. The candy isn't for the baby -- it's for you! You're just using your baby as candy bait. Everyone will know that, and they will still totally respect you in the morning. Here's seven completely reasonable and not-at-all ridiculous reasons why you should go trick-or-treating with a baby.
