Sharing Milestones

Uploaded: Mar 21, 2015
As a parent, it can be emotional to watch your little one(s) reach developmental milestones. You may be overjoyed, overwhelmed, sad, and/or excited about what lies ahead.

You never know exactly when these events are going to happen. Sometimes you miss them, sometimes you are the only one to witness them, and sometimes you share these milestones with friends or family.

Our son ended up crawling for the first time when both my husband and I were home. And taking his first steps at a park play date with friends. When the timing works out for others to partake in the moment, it can be extra special and memorable.

Over the past few months we've enjoyed watching our daughter reach her milestones. Right now she is working on sitting up. Watching her learn how to sit has been extra joyous for our family because our son is taking an interest in helping her practice and is cheering her on. The repetitiveness of toddlerhood has made the game of sitting up and toppling over and sitting up again a laughter-filled one. It is heartwarming to see our daughter's delight as they play together and practice this skill over and over again.

Of course there will be moments of sibling conflict in our future, but this was far from one of them.

Who shared in the joy when your little one(s) reached developmental milestones?
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
