I wanted to do a Flashback Friday to go along with my post from yesterday. My baby just isnt a baby anymore. I looked back at some pictures and just remembered all those little moments.
Of course – I slept through his birth. hehehe Yup, sure did. He was a big ole baby and they had to do c-section for him to be born. 10lbs 2 oz later and we have this precious little baby.
I remember all his little characters that he liked on TV. Since we are flashbacking…. does anyone remember Hong Kong Phoey? Did I spell that right? lol He was my favorite. I remember that when son was 2 yrs old, he would crawl in-between hubby and I early in the morning. I would turn the TV onto the Disney Channel and he LOVED to watch Mickey Mouse Club House.
This is what he looked like when he was about 2. I asked my aunt to take some photos of him and this is one of them. She had the little angel wings (probably still does) and thought they would be perfect. We were at the State Park near the town where we lived at in TN. Thinking back now, maybe she should have had some little horns we could have put on his head too. lol
We moved to the Florida area not long after he turned 3. We both had lived in Florida before he was born. We met in Florida. We moved to the TN area right before he was born. While it is beautiful there – we prefer Florida more. This was taken on a pirate ship tour not long after we first moved back to Florida. It was his first time on a large boat and he was more interested in looking out toward the water than what the “pirates” were doing. lol
We knew then that we had to get him on a bigger ship!!
Our next adventure with him was to take him on the Carnival Sensation. We decided on doing that one since it was a weekend cruise. I did not know if he was going to be able to handle the motion or if he was even going to like it. We lived on the West coast of Florida at the time and this one sailed out of Port Canaveral – on the East coast. We stayed in Orlando the night before and headed out the next morning. Oh the sounds that were coming from the back seat when son saw the ship for the first time. He would just giggle and giggle. We got him all checked in and onto the ship. Had lunch and then brought him up to the top deck so that he could look around. We had a cool day that day and all of us had to wear jeans and sweaters.(It was mid-December and the ship was decorated for Christmas) Look at Mr. Cool laying there like he owns the whole ship!!! This trip is when I was able to get a first hand view of how well Camp Carnival was with our kiddos. He wanted to be at Camp more than he wanted to be with us!! They also had a Christmas program with Camp Carnival and brought son on stage to be part of it.
Little did I realize back then that he was getting his first shot of acting and would want to be on stage MORE. hehehe
Well, thank you for letting me go back in time. I miss my lil man being little! But I LOVE him growing and showing his personality to me. Hubby has received 2 really good phone calls today. I dont want to jinx it just yet, but hopefully soon we will have something to share. Thank you all for reading and have a fantabulous Friday!!
