You experience many firsts as a parent. Some are more exciting and special than others.
The first smile is amazing.
The first steps are a triumph of determination over gravity.
We found waiting for the first words rather frustrating because we were never quite sure whether the boys had actually said a proper word. We waited for a word to be repeated in context before it counted as an official word. Perhaps we had too many rules on that one.
(For the record, Presley’s first word was ‘Home’ and Cash‘s was ‘Ta’).
Today I discovered that Cash can count up to two. It was while he was in the bathroom with me this morning. As I was getting dressed he picked up two new toilet rolls and put them on his arms like whopping white bangles. He sat there holding up alternate arms saying ‘one two one two’. Then he cuddled them and said ‘baby’.
I’m fond of my Nouvelle toilet tissue, but have never felt the need to nurse it!
There was a massive first for Presley too today.
For the first time ever he asked ‘Why?’.
I wonder how long it will be before he hears his first ‘Because I said so’ from me?!
Oh and don't ask me why he chose to wear oven gloves today, or why his hair has started to stick up. I have no idea!
