- Little Man still loves to be the baby. When he gets of the tub he asks to be swaddled and rocked like a baby. Every. Single. Time. I have chosen not to take that away from him, because he will always be my baby. I never want him to feel like Princess has replaced him in anyway. Even though he may not be able to put it into words, I feel like when he holds his arms up to me and asks to be the “baby” what he’s really asking is if I still love him the same way that I used to. He’s making sure my love has not changed. He’s my big boy, but he’s also my baby and he’s free to alternate between titles as much as he wants.
Part of me wants Ez to stay my baby forever. I'm sure all parents can relate. Of course I do want him to grow up and be independent and successful and happy, but I'll miss all the snuggles, and the cute toddler way he talks, and being there for all the major milestones of his life. So if he wants to stay my baby for a little while longer, even after baby #2 arrives, I'm all for it.
After reading that article, I realized I really want to cram in as much one on one time as possible in the next few months, before we go into the sleep-deprived, reclusive newborn phase this summer. And what better place for some one on one time than a mommy son date to Disneyland??

Since we have season passes and we're only about 40 minutes away, I figured that'd be a fun morning outing for us. We got there, rode three rides, had lunch (aka, fruit and a cinnamon roll), and then headed home in time for Ez's nap. Added bonus: since we were only there for a few hours I parked at Downtown Disney and only paid a few bucks for parking, so it wound up being a super cheap date.
