Do You Have a "Santa Baby?"

Do you have a Santa Baby?  My youngest was by no means a Santa Baby when he was 1-yr.-old, as you can clearly see in the first picture below.

This photo cracks me up because we thought it would be such a good idea to take little man to see Santa... that is until we got there!  And the Santa was what, 16-yrs.-old?  ROFL!  That is my son trying to get off of Santa's lap as fast as was humanly possible.

2008

A couple of years later he agreed to sit with Santa again, but only if his older brother and sister sat with him too.  He still looked a little nervous.  At least Santa Claus was more age-appropriate in that one, lol!

2010

This year (yet again two years later), little man was finally ready for the visit (eager in fact!).  He even had a request list made up and was more than ready when Santa asked the big question.  Atta' boy!  I guess these things just take time sometimes, lol.  :)

2012


How about your little one(s)?  Are they "Santa Babies" or do they say, "No Thank You!" when it comes to visiting the man in red?

Both of mine were Santa Babies but from a distance jejeje, it was difficult to get them to sit on his lap, lol See you around

I believe each of them have had a year when it was unhappy, but for the most part they took it in stride. lol

Glad he is finally warming up to the big guy! Mine were always good with Santa. It was the Easter Bunny that scared the pants off them though!

That 16 year old Santa is funny!

Yeah, that's how my youngest was too...he liked Santa real well in books or on TV, lol.

Leovi said...

Yes, very nice pictures.

mail4rosey said...


I had three out of four who liked Jolly Old St. Nick. :)

mail4rosey said...


Aw, Santa is the one who missed out on your cute boys!

mail4rosey said...


LOL! I like the Easter Bunny pics too. :)

mail4rosey said...


I know, he was probably freaking out trying not to drop the screaming kid. I felt almost as bad for him as I did for my own. :)

mail4rosey said...


Thank you. Glad you stopped by to visit the blog. :)

Megan said...

That first picture cracked me up! Thanks for sharing. :)

Oh goodness, I can so relate! I recently posted about my 2-1/2 years and nearly 1 year olds visits to see Santa...and how different those visits were!! http://daneesey.blogspot.com/2012/11/an-odd-conglomeration.html Thanks for stopping by for Favorite Things and being part of the hop!! :)

My son still doesn't think it's funny, but I sure do. ;)

mail4rosey said...


Thanks for visiting back! I saw your cute grandbabies! :)

Jen said...

Hahaha I love these pictures!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Happy Holidays

Thanks, Jen. I like to break out all of the old Santa pics when the holidays roll around. They make me happy. :)

I guess a stranger w/that fake hair and beard can be a little disconcerting. :)

Micaela Petty said...

Awe, I think it's so cute when Santa scares them. My older sister was scared of Santa for awhile, she had a fear of men with beards!

My boys aren't big fans of seeing Santa in person--the last few years the whole family has had to sit with Santa if the boys are even going to consider it. And then they refuse to smile!

mail4rosey said...

It's strange if they've never seen one...prolly even more strange if it's big, fluffy, and white, lol.

mail4rosey said...

Aw, little guys. Those'll probably be the pictures they laugh at years from now. :)

My husband does not like taking family pictures. When we have kids then he will not have a choice and I will get some of these wonderful pics with Santa! lol

My boys have had their picture with santa every year since they were born - whether they like it or not. I have a great one of my oldest when he was about 17 or 18 months old screaming bloody murder on santa's lap - and it's my favorite picture of them all LOL.

mail4rosey said...

I wasn't even going to buy the first one I put up, never even considered it, but hubby was laughing and said, "Are you nuts, of course we want it!" And it's been his favorite ever since, lol.

Renee said...

Adorable! Thanks for sharing these pics and for visiting me at Doorkeeper. Blessings!

Annmarie Pipa said...

your pictures are great! what fun memories for you. My kids sat on santas lap, motionless and expressionless.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for visiting back. :)

mail4rosey said...

LOL That's funny too!

Paula Miller said...

I'm glad he's better with Santa now! My older two didn't care either way if we saw Santa or not. Autumn on the other hand, whose now nine, has NEVER wanted to go near Santa until last year. I was hoping it would happen before she didn't believe anymore! Just in the nick of time :)

Thanks for linking up with my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party!

ha, nice play on words w/the "nick" of time comment. ;)

Courtney G said...

I was always creeped out by the Mall Santa as a kid too actually. Now as an adult female, I think I'm still creeped out;) Ha!

mail4rosey said...

Hubby wanted me to sit w/Santa once and I said Pass. :)

I think it's fun for the kids to though, or all of us as a fam. :)

Isn't the transformation from utter fear to confidence and excitement adorable? My son used to H A T E Santa so much but now he looks forward to it. I think once they realize he's the one giving gifts, it makes them like him a lot more! :)
