Firsts.

This week has been full of firsts and I have been wanting to soak it all up and capture it all. {I also think that all this excitement is having an affect on my heart rate. I get pretty excited! Just ask J or my dad!}

*****

T had his very first babysitting job today. And I'm pretty sure I was more excited than he was. He babysat two neighbor boys for about 3 hours and he did great. He loved it. So did the boys. And he made $7 and hour!

I was shocked and amazed that T, at age 11, having never babysat before (besides H or E for an hour here or there) would be paid that well.

*****

E had her very first trip to the zoo and she loved it.

E and friend Charlie at the zoo.
She now "ROARS" like a lion. And it is the most fun thing to watch her do right now.

The same day we went to the zoo we also had her 18 month check up where she weighed in at 22 pounds and 8 ounces (with a diaper). She's now officially in the 25th percentile. She is making major progress in the weight gain department and our pediatrician said he is no longer concerned at all about that.
The ears and adenoids are a big, fat question mark. But she is hearing and developing and she is not bothered. I have such a peace about where things are right now and I am feeling like that is a good thing. She is a healthy, happy girl even with her food allergies and ear history and that is a lot to be thankful for right there, isn't it?

*****


H had his first day of Ball Activities through Community Education and he loved it. I was so very excited for him because I knew he'd love it. I watch him go into new situations with such ease and he's laughing and having fun with kids he's just met, I just wish I could live my adult life more like it.

The first day was some running, some catching and some throwing.

Next Tuesday and Thursday they start batting. He can't wait.
*****

And Miss M. She had her very first day of tennis. And she loved it. So did I. Doesn't she just look like a tennis pro already?
She was nervous. Oh was she nervous. When I walked her into the courts I was having flashbacks to her preschool days wondering and worrying that this may not go over so well, but it did and she did just fine.
{It always helps when you know your biggest fans are there ready to jump out of our skin with excitement!}

She did not stop smiling the entire time she was out there. And while I'm biased and would love for her to love tennis because I played it and loved it I also am hopeful that this is a sport she'll really love as she gets better and learns more about it.

This is the stuff our days are made of. New firsts. Busy days. Can you believe the above firsts were just this week? But oh, do I love every, single second of it.
