I know that as a parent we are going to have a million 'firsts' with our baby and soon to be toddler (hopefully not too soon). And each new thing will be just as exciting as the next. And it is so amazing to get to witness the things you teach your child when it comes to fruition. Whether that is once they start walking, talking, driving or even clapping. Every morning we sing to Brynn (sometimes I will sing to her if we are still sleeping when Matt leaves for work) and then at the end of our song we clap, saying "clap clap". Nothing too crazy right? But still it is sweet and she lights up every time we do it. This morning for breakfast Brynn is in her high chair and before she goes to town on her banana pieces she just started clapping. A lot. Over and over again she was clapping all by herself and smiling. It was so sweet. She has been clapping all day long and every time I could well up with tears just because of how sweet it is to see her learn and then do new things. It is another moment in time where I am thrilled and then I say a little prayer that time does not go too fast and that we enjoy each moment our baby is in (even when she is ten or fifteen or twenty). Brynn spent some time at my mom's house this afternoon and had her first 'big girl' visit where she was totally content playing there and did not seem to be upset that Matt and I were gone. She was very comfortable and got to explore and show my mom and Steve her personality more than she ever has before.
