Toddle Along Tuesday: Favorite Firsts

This week's topic is favorite milestones. I'm having a terribly hard time coming up with a list. Like way harder than it should be. There are so many things that I have really loved, and many that I have really just wanted to see end.

But, if I have to pick, in no particular order - you can't make me choose!:

Sleeping through the Night: Of course this has to be on the list. Who wouldn't be happy to sleep longer than 45 minutes at a time?



Eating Solid Foods: As much as I love breastfeeding, I have also loved feeding Henry food. I made all of his baby food, so it was great to watch him enjoy it. But somewhere along the way, Henry has decided he is entitled to at least 1/2 of whatever I'm eating, and that I'm not quite loving as much. Plus, who can deny the cuteness of a messy baby face?
Same look, 10 months apart!

Moving Around: Henry sat up at 4 months, crawled at 6, and walked at 9 -- so this is one I have mixed emotions about. I really love watching Hen explore the world, but I do wish he had waited a few more months before he started.

This video is from early August 2011, Henry isn't even 5 months old. By the end of the month he was full blown crawling.

Now if you want a list of non-favorite firsts, this seems easier: learning to say no, throwing food, and learning to bite top that list.

I'm looking forward to a few firsts too: end of reflux, normal iron levels, watching him as a big brother, outgrowing his milk protein allergy, and outgrowing 6-9 month size pants! Hopefully soon, right?

What were your favorite baby firsts?

  2. Henry was a quick mover, that's so great! Our Henry is almost walking..and he'll be 17 months at the end of the month. Also, even though I loved breast feeding I was happy to feed him baby food and watch him as he developed his own food preferences.
