When did you stop calling your baby "the baby"?

My son will be 3 in about a month and I still sometimes catch myself referring to him as "the baby" lol. Of course no matter how old he gets he will still always be MY BABY but I guess sooner or later I should stop referring to him as such!

  • My son turns three soon also. I decided to stop calling him a baby at 2 1/2, when he was potty trained. But Yes, they will always be your baby!!
