They always say that any subsequent children after the first one sort of get the short end of the stick when it comes to capturing their “firsts”.
Of course, when I was pregnant with Aleesia I was SURE that wasn’t going to be the case.
And I was of course wrong.
I only remember to update her “first year” calendar once every 6 weeks or so and by then I’m basically making up when things actually happened. First tooth on October 6th, ish. Said “hi” for the first time somewhere in the month of November. Very precise record keeping.
One thing that I did remember from first baby to second is my love of Pampers diapers (which, you clearly understand by now if you have visited the blog before) but especially Swaddlers. They are so soft and we never see any skin issues, it’s great. And Swaddlers come in sizes 4 and 5 now – which is fabulous!
Pampers has come up with some seriously great opportunities to engage mom’s, new and old, including through their “firsts” campaign.
Being a working mom, I usually miss the ACTUAL first, so I tend to count the first time I see something as “the first”. (does anyone else do that?) But, Aleesia has been quite accommodating to my schedule and I have been lucky enough to be home for a few pretty big firsts. The first time she crawled, the first time she pulled up to stand and the first time she took a step.
Wait, what was that? STEPS you say? Check her out:
It’s still hard for me to believe this is happening, and I promise to remember to write this in her calendar soon. I’m sure it won’t be too much longer before she is walking around the house unassisted with that awesome monster like toddle that I find so adorable. I remember the day Gianna took her first steps like it was yesterday, these things just come and go so fast it’s unbelievable!
