I want to be like you daddy!!

So Tony has been off on Sundays lately and has been able to attend church with us!On Sundays Tony always gets Anthony ready for church(Its a man thing I guess) I guess I only know how to get him ready everyday but Sundays when Tony is off(one of the 4 days he is off) !I have no idea whats going on there hee hee!So anyway Anthony is always watching his daddy get ready when he is off and for the last week while Tony has been at work Anthony has been getting ready the way daddy gets ready!Anthony has been getting daddy's gel out and has been what Anthony calls it "spicing" his hair like daddy does (spike) would be adult language for this process of doing hair :~) like daddy he gets the blow dryer out and dries the spiked gel hair!Then Anthony has been putting on his daddy's deodorant and after shave as well.I think its so precious it is to see him looking up to his daddy and wanting to be just like him!Anthony wants to be with his daddy every second of the day when he knows his daddy is off ! We have this thing between tony and I because when Tony is off Anthony always says"Iam daddy's baby boy" but when Tony's at work Anthony says " mommy Iam your baby boy" Yeah...... little stinker !

Something I pray is that God will give him the same desire to seek the Lord the same way he seeks his earthly daddy some day!and more so that God will continue to work in our family so that we can be a Godly example for our children to see each and everyday!

I wanted to share this song that is so precious and my sister was the one who had told me about it.I thought it was so precious!Its called " I want to be just like you" by Phillips Craig and Dean.

He climbs in my lap for a goodnight hug
He calls me Dad and I call him Bub
With his faded old pillow and a bear named Pooh
He snuggles up close and says, "I want to be like you"
I tuck him in bed and I kiss him goodnight
Trippin' over the toys as I turn out the light
And I whisper a prayer that someday he'll see
He's got a father in God 'cause he's seen Jesus in me
Lord, I want to be just like You'Cause he wants to be just like me
I want to be a holy example
For his innocent eyes to see
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
That my little boy can read
I want to be just like You 'Cause he wants to be like me
Got to admit I've got so far to go
Make so many mistakes and I'm sure that You know
Sometimes it seems no matter how hard I try
With all the pressures in life I just can't get it all right
But I'm trying so hard to learn from the best
Being patient and kind, filled with Your tenderness'Cause I know that he'll learn from the things that he sees
And the Jesus he finds will be the Jesus in me
Right now from where he stands I may seem mighty tall
But it's only 'cause I'm learning from the best Father of them all

"Fathers,do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4

ISn't it crazy to see our little bloys and to think one day they will be men!!! That was sooo precious, I think that was the age my little man started to really notice all that dad does and want to do it too! I love that song! I actually kinda forgot about it, Kristin, I think first shared that song with me...isn't it precious!
