Let's celebrate traditionally non-celebrated milestones!

    As a new mom, I have been fascinated by all the sweet little things that my baby is learning to do on a daily basis.  My favorite new non-celebrated milestone:  Splashing in the tub! 

    Our little Greyson is 3 months old and up until this point, he kind of just sat there happily while we bathed him.  Now, he splashs the water like a crazy man and I love it...I even love the mess he makes!

    What are some other non-celebrated milestones you want to boast about?

        thanks!  I am looking forward to new tub toys..as of now, I've tried to introduce two little ducks, but he's just into splashing the water:)

    My soon-to-be 18 year old is becoming someone I can reason with again!  It's nice to see the switchover from the "sometimes-mouthy-rebellious-teen" to "oh-wow-I-finally-get-this-mom".

      congratulations!!  you are lucky - I feel like my poor mom had to wait until I moved out of the house before I started to realize she was right!  What a great non-celebrated milestone - FOR REAL.

    The first breath
    The first cry
    The first recognising smile
    The first hug
    The last breastfeed
    The first unaided feed
    The first crawl
    The first understanding
    The first word
    The first phrase
    The first sentence
    The first question
    The first sharing
    The first nice comment about how wonderful he or she is (not from family)
    Their first friend
    The first day at school that does not entail crying
    The first star for good work or behaviour
    The first certificate
    Then comes the times you do not want to celebrate too much
    The last bad-mouthing
    The last 'you're a d--kh--d'
    The first girlfriend / boyfriend you know about
    The last day at home
    The first day back at home
    The first day they become real adults
    The first day that they really want to know something about you
    The first real conversation
    The first day working together

    It hasn't happened yet but when my four daughters reach the dating age, I want to celebrate my first shotgun purchase.

        I think there's some milestones I'd rather not celebrate. My 8 and a half month old daughter just learnt that if she has a runny nose it makes for... a snack. You know it's time to wipe her nose when you hear "slurp slurp slurp."

        On the plus side she's just learnt to pull herself to standing on the side of her playpen!
