There are so many things that I looked forward to when I was pregnant with Evie. I remember dreaming about what it would be like to hold her, and to see her for the first time. Every milestone it amazing to me because, as Evie's parents, M and I are the only ones who will truly be there for it all.
Some of the things that I looked forward to most were:
|Evie around 4 months old.|
Consistently sleeping through the night.
|After one of the first times she slept through the night|
Crawling for the first time.
Evie was a late crawler; she was almost a year old before she finally figured it out. I think I looked forward to this so much because I felt so much pressure about it. I wanted to say to everyone, "See, I knew she could do it!!" She walked around 13 months, and now she just runs everywhere. Some days I miss immobility. ;)
The best things about firsts is that there are still so many to come. Now, I daydream about seeing Evie become a big sister, her first day of kindergarten, going to her first school dance, and even her graduation. I can't wait to see the person that she turns out to be.
I'm so excited to have the opportunity to co-host this week's Toddle Along Tuesday with Missie from Growing up Geeky!!
This week's Toddle Along Tuesday topic is favorite firsts! What milestone was the most precious for you? Sitting up, talking, walking, maybe a 1st birthday party, or something else? Feel free to gush and/or reminisce. There are no rules here, except that you link up a relevant post (old or new) rather than your whole blog.
