Kids Firsts - Milestones Past age 5

One of the best parts of being a parent is seeing my kids firsts - and since I'm a Virgo and a list maker I tend to keep a running list of all kinds of firsts. Here are some of the firsts that have happened so far in 2013:

  • Our oldest rode his two-wheeler without training wheels
  • Our middle got his first loose tooth
  • All three kayaked for the first time
  • Two of our kids fished for the first time
  • Our oldest got to the top of the climbing wall at REI
  • They saw the Pacific Ocean
  • They saw redwoods
  • They saw Niagara Falls & went to Canada for the first time
  • They saw a new Great Lake
  • Our middle got a tick for the first time
  • First visits to Michigan and California
Most baby books stop at age 5, so these kind of milestones don't often get recorded. But not in my family.
