I call Preston baby.
Always have. Never really gave much thought to the idea that at some point he might not want me to call him baby.
Apparently I should have.
The conversation went like this...
Me: "I love you baby."
Preston: "Why do you call me baby? I'm not a baby. I'm a big boy now."
Me: "Oh. Mommy has always called you baby since you were actually a baby. Do you want me to call you big boy then?"
Preston: "Yes, because I am not a baby anymore."
Me: "Okay, I love you big boy."
He thinks about it for a minute or two.
Me: "Yeah bab-- big boy?"
Preston: "You call still call me baby."
Melt. My. Heart.
Honestly I'm so relieved. I really hated to think that Preston was to grown up for me to call him my baby anymore!
He hasn't said another word about it since. Guess he always will be my baby no matter how big he gets!
