2. Instead of trashing the boxes, they decided to use them for Cardboard Box Office, where they re-create famous movies scenes in the cutest way possible: starring Orson, of course.

5. Lilly told BuzzFeed the first picture they shot was “The Life Domestic,” aka The Life Aquatic, and people instantly wanted more. “We wanted to depict our messy and sleep-deprived new life of raising a baby,” she said.

9. Whoever isn’t in the photo will shoot it, and they’ll use a timer if all three are in it, which Lilly said can prove to be a challenge.

“For Apollo 13, Leon had to set the five-second timer, run around the cardboard space capsule, grab my legs, and pull me into a headstand position, before quickly getting himself into position,” she said. “We had to do this about six or seven times. … We’re avoiding any more space ones for the time being.”
