There are many milestones we as parents all hope to experience with our kids, but sometimes someone else beats us to the punch… were you there for all of these little milestones with your kids?
It’s nothing short of amazing to watch your baby develop into a little person. Here are some of the fun experience milestones that you won’t want to miss!
1) The first swim
They’ll either love it or hate it and the expression on their little face will say it all.
2) The first haircut
Your child’s first haircut can be really fun or a bit scary. Some are born with what seems like a full head of hair and are quite young when they need their first haircut while for others it may seem their hair is taking forever to grow. Did you keep a lock of hair from your child’s first haircut?
3) The first bath
Did you give your baby their first bath? Often the first bath is given by the nurse in the hospital while you watch and learn hoping you will be able to do it with the same amount of ease. It’s priceless to see and hear their reaction to being in the water for the first time.
4) The first Santa visit
It’s so exciting when your child’s first Christmas approaches. Most parents can’t wait to put their kids in their favourite outfit and take them to see Santa for the first time. The challenge is to get them to sit still long enough so you can get a gorgeous shot (or at least one where they aren’t crying).

5) The first bike ride
No matter what age your child rides their first bike it’s an exciting and also nerve racking time. Some take to it with ease and in no time have progressed to no training wheels while some are a little more cautious.
6) Taking that first bottle
Getting your baby to take their first bottle can be difficult and can take numerous attempts but once they get the hang of it there are smiles all around.
7) Eating their first finger food
It’s exciting to see your child pick up their first piece of finger food and attempt to put it in their mouth. The challenge is to actually get it into their mouth rather than all over the seat of the highchair where they sit on it.
8) First taste of solid food
Most babies’ eyes light up and can’t wait to have their first taste of solid foods. Watch that little face as they experience the different textures.
9) That first time in a swing
Seeing a child smiling in a swing at the park with other kids always puts a smile on your face.
10) Losing that first baby tooth
Losing that first tooth can happen anywhere at anytime so often you may not be around. There is no doubt that as soon as they see you they will let you know they need to put the tooth out for the fairies.
11) Tasting ice cream
Most kids love ice cream. How did your child react to their first taste of ice cream?
