Milestones .....

Go, Grace, Go!

There have been several milestone moments in my life....when I got my driver's license, when I got married, when I had Grace, when I got my first job, when I quit my first job (tears galore....I wasn't emotionally prepared to let someone down), when I found the job I love, and many others.

Even in Grace's short 4 years, she's had several milestone moments.......when she took her first step, her first word.....but these next few are the milestone moments that make life a bit easier on us mommas! Such as.....

- When she learned to buckle herself into her carseat ... WOW! No more contorting my body into crazy positions from the front seat, just so I don't have to get out of the car to do it.

- When she learned to hold her own bottle ... who doesn't remember that combination of sadness & joy? Sad, because they were growing too fast. Joy, because no more holding the end of the bottle with your chin so you can reach for something without disturbing their eating!

- When she was potty trained. Need I say more?

- When she was off the formula....talk about the best $20/week raise there is!

And now.....when she learned to bathe herself! Love this....and she is actually excited about it! She remembers to wash her face first....and not to forget her ears. I still do most of her hair, but this was a good attempt!
