He'll Always Be My Baby

Remember the scene in Father of the Bride circa 1990 version where the daughter, Annie comes home from Italy and tells George Banks that she is getting married? He immediately flashes back to when she is 6 years old and hears her news from his little girls perspective. To him she will always be his baby.

When Min man sits on his little training potty looking up at me saying, "pee pee coming," I imagine that this is the picture I will always have in my head as he grows older. When he towers over me and becomes a man, tells me he's in love or graduates school, I will think back to that little face and remember my son when he was 2 years old. And I will never forget my favorite sayings.

Here are some favorites:

1. Christmas tree= cranberry tree

2. Whenever he saw a reindeer he asked if his nose hurt- Rudolph's nose is bright red so it hurts

3. "A cow jumps a moon"= The cow jumping over the moon from "Goodnight Moon."

4. "Good job, Mom" when I back the car up or park it.

5. "I sit a me"= I sit with mom

2010 is a year of many big accomplishments.
Hopefully potty training will be complete.
Pre-school may be on the horizon.
Anniversary of adoption day.
Birthday #3.

Everyday is a new adventure. Every day I am blessed and grateful.

Oh, and I promise now that I will never sneak into my future in-laws bathroom snooping around in their medicine cabinet or go through their office and rifle through their desk and walk off with their checkbook. (such a good movie)

Happy 2010 to all.

I LOVE the Father of the Bride movies!

Min Man sounds like such a sweetie. I'm glad your documenting some of your favorites to keep as reminders when he gets older. How the time flies!

Happy 2010!

I love those sayings. I think my favorite is his telling you that you did a good job when parking. We all need that kind of encouragement!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!!
This is such a sweet post. I, too, have found myself flash forwarding with my boys - it's so hard to immagine them all grown up.
Whew - potty training - not looking foward to that one with babe #2! Thankfully boy #1 finished his training (on his OWN schedule!!) exactly one week before baby brother arrived!

I love this post. I'm so close to that moment of really looking up at my oldest son and all I can think about are the things he did and said we he was a wee little guy. Just like you, they will always be my babies.

I adore that you celebrate your family's "adoption anniversary". For 27 years (28 in May), my family has always marked the day my parents brought me home. And each year, I revel in hearing the story of that day over and over and over. I never tire of it.

What great moments with your son! I think all the time when I look at our son how I know I will always see him as this darling baby even when he is a little boy, a teenager, a man. It's helped me understand how my parents and my mother-in-law feel, seeing us simultaneously as adults and as the children we once were. Our children will indeed always be our babies!
