While it is true that we missed many of the big firsts and there is some sadness associated with that, there are so many more firsts we have gotten to experience and will experience in the future. I thought I would celebrate a few of them.
First time trying to ride a tricycle (not quite tall enough):
First living room fort:
Discovering that the pantry is a fun place to hide:
First Air Show:
First super hero cape:
First time being "tortured" by one of his cousins:
Discovering pockets for the first time:
First bowl of cereal:
"Discovering" ants for the first time:
If you are waiting for your child to come home, especially those of you waiting on your first little one, I hope you will be encouraged as you see that there are so many wonderful first moments ahead of you. I love this post by Lisa which lists even more of them.
