Don’t Call Me Cute!

My son has been saying and doing some of the cutest things lately. The kind of things that I want to make sure I write down and remember because they are just so sweet and funny.

He turns three later this month, and I can’t believe how fast he is growing up. I still look at him as my baby, but he’s so not a baby anymore, and he lets me know this on a regular basis.

His latest thing is that he doesn’t want to be called cute, and will correct me, my husband, or anyone else that happens to call him cute, at any time.

He says, “Don’t call me cute! I’m NOT cute! I’m a big boy!”  And it’s so funny because it’s so… well, cute!

One of the things that he does that I think is so cute is that he sticks his little tongue out whenever he is working hard, or concentrating on something. His dad does it too, and I love that he takes after his daddy in that way.

I’ve collected some pictures from over the past year of Bren and his cute little tongue sticking out. Just don’t tell him I called him cute!
