Naomi cannot wait to grow up. A sure fire way to get into an argument with her to tell her that she is too small for something, or that someone is bigger than her...or heaven forbid, call her a baby. Austin and I constantly call her baby, not maliciously, but as a pet name. We're constantly telling her that even when she is a grown up, she will always be our baby, to which she'll respond, "no I'm not a baby, I'm a big girl"
The other night, she was tired and didn't want to walk up the stairs, so she asked Austin to pick her up. Austin responded, "what!!? you're not a baby, you can walk"
To which Naomi responded, "but Daddy, even though I'm a big girl, I'll always be your baby right? So you CAN carry me!"
