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?
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
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!
