The first in-utero kick. The first smile. Tooth. Step. Car.
What milestones have your children reached lately? Did you document the event at all?

My son is working very hard at walking, and I've been hovering with a camera, waiting to catch the moment. I was hoping those first wobbly steps would show up before his birthday, but I'm starting to think that's not going to happen. Of course, it's all good -- he can't run away if he can't walk!

My son just completed his second year of university. Made the Dean's list both years. Is that a milestone or am I just bragging?

Well, not really a traditional milestone, but I'll brag anyway. My daughter can read at least 2 words now (dog and book). She can read a few others when she's in the mood and paying attention. I'm trying to be laid back and not push her too hard, but I really hope she's reading sentences by her 4th b-day in June, since her daddy and I were both reading at 3. Anyone else at the learning to read stage? Reading is such a huge love of mine that sometimes it's hard not to get frustrated with her, but mostly it's not that she doesn't seem to grasp it (she does!) it's that she's got a 3-year-old attention span. I usually realize that when she starts saying, "I don't know," or just pulling a word out of the air when we're trying to sound a word out that she's had enough for now. But sometimes I just want her to get it right...I know she can do it because she just did it 30 seconds before, and that is pretty frustrating.

My son turned 21 nine months ago. Holy smoke! It seems like only yesterday that I was holding him in the delivery room. Where does the time go?

Evan can't read yet -- he's only 18 months -- but he's getting there. He can identify pictures in books (Cat, Dog, Horse, etc) and what animals say; he can identify certain people if I show him their pictures.

He'll also pick out letters from the newspaper -- just A, E and S right now. But I still think it's a pretty big deal for someone his age.

My daughter throws things in the toilet! Does that count?! LOL!

When there is something out of her reach, she will try to push something over to stand on so she can reach it! I was so impressed by that, she is smart as a monkey now!

I *have* to get some kind of lock thingy for my refridgerator, because the handle is within her reach and she will open it up and pull food onto the floor. Sigh.

Very destructive mischeivous milestones from my 15 month old daughter. But she gives really good hugs, and is starting to learn about kisses too. Hers are very sloverry open mouthed ones not really appropriate for moms, but we're working on it.

LOL! I remember those slobbery open mouth kisses, too! I guess it's from too much TV. She'll get it right soon. My daughter had a fascination with the toilet for a while, too. Luckily she never put anything into it, though. And there's no way my daughter could have opened the fridge at 15 mos! Wow! Hayley's only been able to open the fridge since she turned 3. Then again, she didn't have any interest in the fridge when she was 15 mos and we bought a brand new fridge when she was 20 mos, so it still has a really good seal on it.
