Kids grow up WAY too fast! It seems like one day I was changing my daughter’s diapers and the next I’m buying her deodorant and talking about puberty! As I watched The Odd Life of Timothy Green a couple of months ago, it reminded me of just how quickly time flies and to cherish every little moment we share with our children.
The parts of their childhood we tend to document includes most of their firsts: their first smile, their first word, their first tooth, their first step, etc. My husband and I recorded all of those with my daughter but there’s one “first” that brings a smile to my face whenever I think about it, even now that eleven years have passed. It all started when she was about seven months old:
Yes, that’s her hearty, deep from the gut, “I’m loving it!” laugh out loud (LOL) laugh. We could not believe such a laugh could come out of such a little girl. She absolutely LOVED it when my husband would nibble her neck! It was when we heard this that we knew she wasn’t just a child but she was OUR child, the one that would fill a place in our hearts like no other.
Isn’t she sweet?! Aww, I need to go hug my daughter now! What is your favorite memory of your child(ren)?
