A First Time for Everything

As we drove Whit to the doctor for his first shots a week ago I began to think about all of the firsts in his life.

In the last 10 1/2 weeks Whit has had his first day with a sitter away from Mom and Dad, his first smile, his first bath, and his first road trip.  There are so many more that have happened that I can't possibly list them all.  It is difficult not to become nostalgic and emotional when I think of all the firsts that have come and gone.  Moments that we will never experience again.  We will never again feel the joy that came with that first smile, that first laugh, the first time he slept through the night!

Our baby is growing up so fast.  However, he still has many more firsts to come and I pray that we are able to enjoy each moment of every one of them. 

On that note, Whit is putting forth all of his effort right now to roll over for the first time.  The only downside? Rolling from back to belly means 'tummy time' which is easily Whit's least favorite activity.
