Energizer Bunny's Mommy Reports: CLOSED: Babies-The Movie (+15 Tickets Giveaway: 5 winners)

CLOSED: Babies-The Movie (+15 Tickets Giveaway: 5 winners)


The Focus Feature movie everyone has been talking about was finally released this Mother's day in theaters all over the US. Babies is a one of a kind movie documentary following the lives of 4 precious babies in 4 different parts of the world- Africa, Japan, Mongolia and the US.

Thomas Balm├Ęs, the award-winning filmmaker, adapted the idea for this movie from the movie's producer Alain Chabat. This beautifully captured art documentary, introduces the viewer to Ponijao, Mari, Bayar and Hattie and takes the viewer on a journey through the 4 babies' lives right from infant-hood through till they take their first few independent steps as tots.



We watched the trailer to this movie when we'd taken Bunny girl to watch Disneynature's Oceans and Hubby and I immediately looked at each other and agreed that we had to watch this once it hit the theaters.
From the little that we did get to watch the one thing rang out loud and clear....Babies are the same all over the world. Irrespective of their environment, material haves and have nots, they will grow up to be healthy and possess strong, independent personalities of their own.

(I think this is a lesson we as parents in the land of plenty need to remember. Our little ones don't need everything available in the market to grow up to be strong individuals, physically or emotionally. It was a reminder to me especially as Bunny girl spent her 1st year back home in India and she never did have all that Bunny Boo has been blessed with in the form of gifts, baby gear etc but she has blossomed beautifully, by God's Grace.)


I can't wait till our tickets come through in the post. I've heard great things about this movie and I'm hoping our tickets do get here before Bunny Boo does else I may have to wait a bit to watch this.
(I'm posting this prior to actually watching the movie just in case Bunny Boo does arrive before the tickets do and I really do want my 5 winners to watch Babies while its hot, hot, hot in your local theaters!!)

When I put my 3 year old to bed every night, I say, "You're my favorite boy in the whole world" and he replies, "You're the best mommy." One of my favorite times of the day.

Once, when my oldest nephew was a little over 2, he got angry at something I was doing. (I think I was ruffling his hair.) He got all red, stamped his foot, and said "I MAD YOU, GEE!" (My real name is Jill, and he used to call me Gee.) He was so serious, and we burst out laughing.

(We still repeat that randomly to each other when we're being silly. He's 18 now, and would probably be appalled if he knew I was posting this. ^_^)

Thank you for the giveaway!

My friend had died when my bay was 10 months old. I went into the bedroom and laid on the bed to cry so as she wouldnt see is. Daddy was watching her in Living room. I saw the door to bedroom open and in comes my crawling baby who pulls herself up to the bed, takes the binky out of her mouth and placed it in mine, she then gave me a kiss and crawled away.

It was then I knew how big of a heart this little bugger had! She was trying to comfort mommy!

I've had so many heartwarming moments with my son & daughter when they were babies but I would have to say the very first heartwarming moment was right after I delivered my first child. My son looked exactly like his father's baby picture. I couldn't stop laughing when I looked at him and the nurse asked me if I was okay. I told her my relatives had said the reason I had intense heartburn during pregnancy was my baby would have lots of hair but all I saw was blonde peach fuzz just like in his father's baby photo. They even had the exact same weight. Holding him I was overwhelmed with joy and so thankful for this miracle from God. Several years later, we were blessed again with our daughter.
