LOL – My Daughter’s Literal Translation #TimothyGreen

by TerriAnn

Kids grow up WAY too fast! It seems like one day I was changing my daughter’s diapers and the next I’m buying her deodorant and talking about puberty! As I watched The Odd Life of Timothy Green a couple of months ago, it reminded me of just how quickly time flies and to cherish every little moment we share with our children.

The parts of their childhood we tend to document includes most of their firsts: their first smile, their first word, their first tooth, their first step, etc. My husband and I recorded all of those with my daughter but there’s one “first” that brings a smile to my face whenever I think about it, even now that eleven years have passed. It all started when she was about seven months old:

Yes, that’s her hearty, deep from the gut, “I’m loving it!” laugh out loud (LOL) laugh. We could not believe such a laugh could come out of such a little girl. She absolutely LOVED it when my husband would nibble her neck! It was when we heard this that we knew she wasn’t just a child but she was OUR child, the one that would fill a place in our hearts like no other.

Isn’t she sweet?! Aww, I need to go hug my daughter now! What is your favorite memory of your child(ren)?

The Odd Life of Timothy Green comes out in theaters August 15th! Follow the official Facebook page and @OddLifeMovie on Twitter for the latest news about the film and related tips.

Isn’t it cute?! Now that my daughter is 11, her baby days seem SOOO long ago 🙁

That is absolutely precious.. now I need to go look back through some of my old videos!

Hi TerriAnn: This is too adorable for words. What a creative post!

I have to confess that my favorite first of my daughter’s second year was when she started using her imagination. Over the Christmas holidays she spread out her arms and said, “I’m flying.” That was a very special moment for me.

TerriAnn July 15, 2012 - 10:35 pm

Aww, how sweet. I’m sure that was the beginning of many, many more moments of creativity 😛

Oh this is so adorable! It reminds me of how hard my daughter would laugh at her brother when she was a baby. All he had to do was walk in the room and she would laugh until she was red! It was so cute. Sigh my daughter is almost 12 so I know how that feeling is, it seems so very long ago!

TerriAnn July 15, 2012 - 10:36 pm

Oh my goodness, that must have been hilarious! That’s the kind of stuff that wins America’s Funniest Home Videos 🙂 Yes, time really goes by quickly!

What a sweet precious memory!

TerriAnn July 15, 2012 - 10:37 pm

Thanks, Brandy. This is one of our favorites!

That is just the cutest! Baby laughs are the best!

TerriAnn July 15, 2012 - 10:37 pm

So true. I love the fact that just the smallest things can crack them up 🙂

Each stage of a child’s growth is precious. It’s so great that you were able to capture this magic moment on video. You’ll treasure it forever!

Thank you. When the kids are little, you feel silly taping and photographing every second but once they grow up, that time is gone. So forget feeling silly and get a much of their childhood as you can, while you still can!

That was cute.

TerriAnn July 19, 2012 - 6:33 am

Thanks – did it make you smile?

Sonia Gomez July 19, 2012 - 2:49 pm

Yup. She’s so serious now. It was refreshing to see her laugh like that.

TerriAnn July 22, 2012 - 9:48 pm

I don’t know about serious, though. She’s a crack up sometimes and will laugh so hard she can’t stop. It’s definitely different and we’re so happy that we can watch her old laugh as well 🙂
