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?
I have two daughters and they both loved the tub, get ready for hours of fun and enjoy all the really cool bathtub toys for babies... Congrats
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".
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!

Does anyone know any person; a friend, neighbor, sibling, acquaintance, work mate e.t.c who is not a Christian? In the light of the Christmas mood and spirit, what gift do you think is best to share with such a person?

After seeing Hubbers announce certain milestones such as view numbers, first $100 payouts and HubPages anniversaries I thought that it would be really cool to create a more automated and easily broadcast way to let other Hubbers know these milestones by sending them through the Hubtivity. I am...

Just now, I checked out Trish1048's hubtivity, and found that she'd reached a milestone of 91 Hubs being viewed 10,000 times. Actually, her Hubscore is 91, and she's written 41 Hubs. As for the 10,000 views, well I have no way of knowing. Hope this is helpful info for fixing some...

Why do non-Christians celebrate Christmas?Christmas is a celebration of the birthday of Christ. Why do non-Christians celebrate Christmas? Is this the reason people say the US government was founded based on Christian principles?

With respect to both my believer and non-believer friends I am just curious if Christmas is celebrated in the same way with Christmas trees and gift giving etc. The purpose is not to argue and fight on this thread but to respond positively to each other without irritating one another , can this be...

Why are so many people critical of how others celebrate Christmas?Christmas is what you make it and you have every right to celebrate it the way you wish. It is not only for Christians anymore. It is a societal tradition that will not go away as religions decline. It is a time to be happy, to...
