I am in awe everyday that God has given me the amazing opportunity to bring a child into this world. I have been given a gift to witness a number of “firsts'” that my child gets to experience. It seems like these “firsts'” are happening everyday lately. My little guy seems to be growing so quickly… Right before my eyes.
From a new giggle, to eating a new food for the first time to starting to show signs of crawling. I am moved each time he tries or experiences something new. I was just looking at various videos and pictures I have taken lately, and came across this one. I took it a few days ago when I let Lucas touch bananas for the first time. My brother in law (who is a neat-nick anti dirt/mess kind of guy… JUST like my husband) convinced me that I should start letting him touch his food so he could experience these new textures and work on his fine motor skills (even if it’s messy). Yes, Meg – your husband was advocating your beliefs in making a mess;)!!!
After watching this video I was in awe at how amazing it is that I get to witness these first experiences. He will never touch a banana again for the first time. What a special opportunity. I need to remember moments like these because they come and go so quickly.
