Babies are boring. If there's one thing sitcoms and our friends from high school who now have kids have taught us, it's that all babies do is cry and poop themselves. Pathetic! We need cute kid actors, stat! Preferably some that can deliver lines.
We were kind of hoping Modern Family wouldn't go the route of sitcoms past by replacing the cute twins who originally played Lily with an older actress so soon. But we do get it. Sitcoms are "situational comedies," and we guess toddlers are better at making stuff happen on screen than babies who can just be adorable or terrifying when they scream/smell. But did the producers really think we wouldn't question the rapidly aging Lily? Rapid premature aging in children is no laughing matter, ABC, it's a real disease.
