Geeky Mommie and I recently watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and we both had the same recurring thought: Baby Groot reminded us so much of Lil’ G-Man!
Both Baby Groot and Lil’ G are unbelievably adorable (in my unbiased opinion), both go through life with an extremely limited vocabulary (so far), both love music, love to dance and get into mischief without (or even with) constant adult (or racoon) supervision.
A picture says a thousand words.
Both babies can also pull off a cute look in uniforms.
As we all know, Baby Groot is limited to a strict vocabulary of 3 words in one particular order.
Lil’ G’s vocabulary so far has been limited to “da da da da da da” in durations varying from a few seconds to around 30 minutes.
Unfortunately for Geeky Daddy, one of the longest “da da da” marathons happened on Mother’s Day and Geeky Mommie has not forgotten that…
Love of Music
At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2, after an emotional roller coaster, Peter Quill sat down with some 80’s music for a quiet, personal, reflective moment. Baby Groot sheepishly approached and Quill shared an ear bud with him for a great father son moment.
This hit close to home for me. There are times where I rock out to some music, look over and see Lil’ G in his Fisher Price 4 in 1 Piano smiling at me and rocking along. Before I know it, an hour has passed and he and I have been sitting on the floor rocking out together the whole time.
Side note: Anybody with a little music lover needs to check out this Fisher Price Piano. G has been playing in it daily for nearly 3 months now. He loves it, never gets tired of all the musical toys on it and (most importantly) has never complained about being placed in it! Here is a quick video of the G enjoying the toy.
Love to Dance
One of our first impressions of Baby Groot is at the end of the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie where he is dancing and interacting with Drax. This scene is very similar to our family room most evenings with G playing the part of dancing Baby Groot and myself as Drax…with the one major difference being I genuinely don’t sharpen daggers in the family room.
Nevertheless, when Blue Swede’s Hooked on a Feeling starts playing, neither baby is able to resist putting their moves on display! G’s favorite part is the “Uga Chaka’s”.
This might be a bit of an exaggeration in G’s case, but he is now rolling over and just starting to crawl, so images of G like this are on the way!
I imagine it will look like this:
