Just catching up…

So I was at Babies R Us the other day (yes, I still frequent the place) and I was thinking about buying one of those first-year calendars where I could record all his fabulous milestones.  Then I realized that he’s almost halfway through the calendar already!  That realization is what leads me here to record all the milestones he’s reached thus far.  Mind you, those milestones that make my heart flutter may not be completely aligned with those agreed upon by the medical profession.

  • First bottle – 4 weeks
  • First social smile – 6 weeks
  • Rolled from belly to back – 1 month (mind you he did this 2 more times that following week and then not again until about 4 months!)

  • First airplane ride – 10 weeks
  • First swim – 10 weeks
