Why do we do/say this?

"My favorite baby picture of my little man. I can't believe he's already the big 0 - 1!"

This is with a pic of a 1-month old baby. Do we ever say, "My favorite baby picture of my little woman."?  No, we say, "of my little girl" or "of my precious girl."  What is the matter with us that we have to pretend a little boy, or a big boy - but, a boy - is a man?  Why is it wrong to be a little boy?
