[Friday Favorites] But First...Let Me Take a Selfie

Friday, August 22, 2014

Today's Friday Favorites is inspired by my little love.

I'm currently loving this age (minus the tantrums) and 
want to document some things I don't want to forget.

I want to remember...

...the way he leans in for a kiss on the lips when I say "can you say 'love you mama'?"

...the way he shares - by shoving a piece of whatever he is eating in my mouth even when I tell him no.

...the way when you ask for a kiss, he will either lean in for a kiss on the lips or will turn his cheek like "yes you may kiss me".

...the way he wants to give himself a bath and picks up the bucket of water and dumps it on his head...and all over the bathroom floor.

...the way he sits at the dinner table patiently waiting for mom or dad to come and sit with him and as we get closer, he pushes the chair out next to him for us to sit down - like sit here next to me mom and dad!

...the way he knows the morning routine and could probably do it without any help - I grab my purse, I grab Mason, I give him his milk, I pick up his lunch and my lunch, we head out the door, I put my coffee and our lunches in the car, he motions to get down, I put my purse in the car, he walks to the back door, I open it, he gets in, I put him in the car seat, he knows to put his arms in the straps, he buckles the top buckle, I buckle the bottom one, he hands me his milk, and he starts eating his waffles.

...the way we arrived at daycare the other morning, I took him out of the car, told him to stay right next to me as I got his stuff from the front seat and he ran off a little (not far and there were no cars). I ran to him, grabbed his arm, and went to tell him that he can't run off, that he will get a big owie and we will have to go to the doctor when... he starts spinning in circles. I try to grab his hand and be serious and he just twirls. And I can't help but smile.

...the way he copies me. I taught him how to take a selfie the other night. He made faces for the camera and actually took some himself (see bottom right).

...the way he is just so sweet and melts my heart on a daily basis.


Linking up with Momfessionals



  1. Oh my goodness, this is too cute!! He's so adorable!

  2. This age is adorable! Noah does the same thing when I ask for a kiss. When he gives me his cheek I say but I want a kiss from you! And isn't it amazing how these kids pick up on routines so quickly!

  3. I love how they learn routines too! I haven't done bath time in months, but since Conor was out of town this week I had to step up, and Liam told me exactly how it was done these days!

  4. How cute! Connor take the worst selfies.. and by selfies I mean everything around him but him. I have lots of his shoes and the hardwood floors/carpets.

  5. Mason is just so cute!!
    Nolan is in a kissy phase, and I am loving it, too :)
    Hope you're having a great weekend!!

  6. He sounds adorable! So cute that he knows your routine by heart!

  7. Aw, how sweet!!
    LOVE the selfless!!

  8. Oh with that kissy face! He has got that one done perfect! I was just talking about how this age is just too fun right now (minus the tantrums too)! But he is starting to say and do funny things on purpose and it kills me. I need to write things done more like this so I can always remember.

  9. Precious!! What a sweet boy. Isn't this such a wonderful time/age?! :)
