Flash-forward...

Sunday morning Parker and I were sitting at the desk and watching some old home videos of her. This is also one of her favorite things to do these days. I often think that I could blog about and post a video of Parker watching a video of herself from the blog. Did you get that? She points to the laptop DAILY saying "Bah-bah! Bah-bah!", because she wants to watch herself in the videos that I post on the blog. This kid loves to watch herself...in pictures and on video...it doesn't matter. Ummm....I think she may get this from her Aunt Sister....

Anyway- we stumbled upon this video from about 3 months ago. I was still on my winter break....and I think it was just a random morning that I decided to get out the video camera for no reason at all...but to just film Parker (and I am learning that when I do get the video camera out for no reason at all...that I tend to get some of the best footage....but that's another story for another day). I never posted it because it was just a random video...and believe it or not...I do not post every video and picture on here. I know...sometimes it seems as though I do.

But as we were watching it...with her in my lap....being so sweet...leaning back onto me....I had a flashforward (I think I just made that word up....).

Here she is in this video, a 15 month old....


....and I am asking her if I can come into her room....and she basically closes the door in my face. I know her intentions at this juncture are to merely shut the door....because that's just a fun thing to do right now. But I flashforwarded about 12 years (14 if we're lucky) to the age where she will probably for real be shutting the door in my face!

And then the video just kept getting better. I was still flashforwarding. Here's another snippet....




There she was....just sitting in that room (please excuse the mess, by the way....this is the way we roll during the day...and most times at night, too)....sitting in the chair backwards, nonetheless, propping her feet up on the back of the chair.....talking on the phone.... and ignoring me!

It's classic.

I know this is years away....but they fly....and they'll be here sooner than we think!

Yikes!

I know Parker has already grown up so much!! I don't want her to get any bigger, but I know that isn't how it works!!
