Moms Share Their Favorite Firsts for Baby
Watching your little cutie experience something for the first time is one of the true joys of parenthood. We asked some proud mamas to share their favorite firsts. The photos are priceless!
“The first time Lily laughed I was so overwhelmed with love and warmth. It made the lack of sleep, delirium and terror of taking care of a newborn worth it!” - Ana K.
First Trip to the Beach
“We took Tallulah to the beach for the first time once she turned 2 months. She loved the breeze and white noise from the ocean and slept most of the day while we were there.” - Tara M.
“Ben took his first steps the day before his first birthday. It was so much fun to see the look on his face when he realized he could do it on his own.” - Kelly K.
“It took Alex a while to actually crawl. For a very long time he would get up on his hands and knees and just rock back and forth like he was going to take off any minute but never would. And then finally one day he just put it all together and took off.”
- Catherine G.
“Tony’s first encounter with rice cereal went something like this – confusion, slight disgust, discovery and then delight! It was a hysterical disaster. When your baby first eats solids, get ready to laugh and watch out for the dive bombs for the spoon!”
- Georgia T.
“Jack really took [his first haircut] well; he sat nice and didn’t fuss or fidget too much. I think he was more curious than anything else. The hair dresser was surprised he was so well behaved.”
- Melissa B.
“Both of my girls were 1 when they finally starting getting their teeth. Vivian is starting to get her 1 year molars now [at 22 months]. I guess we’re just a little late.” - Cheryl C.
“For Lucas’s first birthday I remember making 65 cupcakes in different colors to go with the Yo Gabba Gabba theme and driving myself crazy! But it was worth it when I saw him dig into his cake and respond to it being Brobee, his favorite character from the show.” - Chenoa S.
“We dressed Gabriel as bumblebee because his big brother, Lucas, was dressed as the Transformers’ Bumblebee. We went to Boo at the Zoo. It was pouring out but we’d promised Lucas we would go. It was crazy and something we definitely wouldn’t have done with our first born when he was only 5-months-old but you’re more relaxed with your second!”
