There’s no such thing as an ugly country baby, there just can’t be. Every little nugget that we see pictures of is as adorable as the last, and we can’t get enough of the photos we’re seeing of those bundles of goodness online.
But Rodney Atkins and Rose Falcon may win the internet for cute baby photos, at least for this week.
The married singer-songwriters and their baby boy, Ryder, are taking a little break from the grips of winter to vacation in sunny Mexico, and it looks like Rod and Rose have themselves a little traveler. Ryder didn’t shed a single tear on the eight-hour flight.
But why would he when he had sun, sand and sea waiting for him in Cabo, along with a comfy place to nap.
While Ryder looked like he was pretty content to nap in the cabana, it is his two-month birthday. And while he’s not quite up for a big piñata-busting party yet, Rose and Rod did manage to capture some pretty great pictures that they shared in a photo album on Instagram. And check out that last one. Another little one who is the spitting image of his daddy.
Still, this is our favorite …
We can hardly believe that Ryder Falcon Atkins is two months old! Rodney and Rose, along with Rodney’s firstborn, Elijah, welcomed the sweet little one on Dec. 14, 2017 in Nashville.
December was actually a super busy month for Nashville’s labor and delivery rooms, at least as far as country music babies were concerned. Jason Aldean and wife Brittany welcomed their son, Memphis, on Dec. 1, while Dylan Scott’s son, Beckett, and Casey James’ son, Maverick, bookended Ryder’s birth on Dec. 12 and 16 respectively. Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard both welcomed baby girls right before Christmas, with Lillie Haywood arriving on Dec. 22 and Olivia Rose Hubbard on the 23rd. Then Craig Wayne Boyd added baby boy Graydon to his family on Dec. 28.
And you thought Santa Claus had a busy night!
It isn’t likely that 2018’s birth rate could beat the over three dozen babies who arrived in the country music family in 2017, but it’s only February, so we’re hopeful.
OK Ryder, resume your regularly scheduled activity.
