I don’t have a baby of my own, but I have been around babies… Nevertheless, I may not be the right person to weigh in on this.

“I am Thor, God of Thunder! My enemies and the enemies of earth shall feel mjolnir’s wrath! I will smite all those that threaten peace, justice and afternoon nap time!”
“Hey, it’s Iron Tony! I mean… Sorry, I’m already drunk.”
