The blessings of our children's milestones

As a parent, it is amazing to watch our children learn and grow. My family and I like talking about and looking through our family pictures and videos to re-live the memorable moments. I think milestones are truly blessings, as we miraculously learn important things in life such as walking, eating that we tend to take for granted each day.

There are many milestones of my children that I want to remember because each one is important to me such as the cute toothless smiles that melt our hearts, and the way their little fingers used to grasp onto our finger tightly.

I remember my children trying to lift up their head on their own, when I put them in their tummy-time. A child learning to balance their head is a big milestone for me because once they learn to balance it is easier to carry them.
Walking and exploring.
It was so cool to capture the moments of my children turning from their tummies to their back and vise versa. I remember them crawling high-speed to every corner of the house curiously exploring. 
It was neat to watch my children holding onto furniture and learning to walk.

The first time my children ate solids while drinking breast milk was a big deal for me. I started off with solid food like bananas and rice cereal. My daughter was able to have rice cereal from boxes, however my son reacted with allergies to the milk that was found in the rice cereal so I gave him grounded rice. It was a big learning experience for me, as I slowly introduced each new food item to them. It is so cute to see the pictures of their facial expressions as we gave them new food items.

The days are going by fast my babies are growing up and I am trying to keep up, so it was nice to sit down and think about some of these milestones :)
