Big Moment Missed

Today Caitlyn accomplished a big task for the first time and we missed it! I laid Cait on her back in her play gym so I could get the kids a snack and when I returned to the room, this is how I found her!!!

"Hey Mom, look what I did!"

"You missed the big moment Mom and I don't know if I can remember how to do it again!!"

"Life looks good from this angle and check out my hand down there, it can hold stuff!"

I remember when Mikayla was trying to figure out how to roll from back to front, we didn't want to take our eyes off her for fear we may miss something amazing!! This time around, we missed something amazing and really, it's ok. We properly celebrated her when we all realized what she had done!

I am happy that Caitlyn is developing normally and is experiencing all the milestones that a baby goes through. It is easy to take for granted the little things that our children do...we are so blessed.

We were like the with Zoe too. Always watching for the milestones. Noah did so many things the first time and we missed it. He rolled over one day at about 3 months and I walked in the room and found him on his stomach. Come to think of it I think he was playing with his play gym too:0)
