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?

Wow! Your little guy was on the move quick! We're almost to 14 months and still no walking.

Henry is adorable by the way :)

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.
