“First” things have been on my mind lately. Recently, we’ve experienced a couple of first of the season activities.
First dip in an outdoor pool.
First snowfall (although the snow skipped us completely this year…boo).
First plugging in of the Christmas tree lights.
First cutting of the grass in the Spring.
First swim in the ocean.
I also love the firsts that have taken place while raising my son.
words… Sean’s first word(s) were “excuse me”. I like to tell him that, even back then, he was a very polite young man…;)
trip to zoo
cake (Note to first-time parents) You might not want to offer chocolate cake as the first cake. I didn’t know it then but my son’s eyes were trying to tell me. “Mom, you don’t know this because I can’t talk quite yet…but I hate chocolate.”
And, that first time as an infant when he stretched his little arms out and reached for me with his tiny hands… my momma heart split completely open.
Who knew that joy could hurt so good?
Would love to hear about some of your favorite firsts! Share in the comments section.
