Hawkin’ the moment

What’s so strange about having a “preemie” is that you become obsessed, truly obsessed, with milestones. I am sure that we are not the only set of parents whose heart swells with pride, love, amazement when their baby does something totally and completely normal…but we’re going to brag again anyway.

Last year, this is where we were. Today, I cried because Jack pulled himself up to a standing position while watching the US Open.

I am dork. A dork with a huge sense of history.

  1. You are not alone! My husband and I often joke that our son Aidan is going to turn into a praise junkie. But we can’t help ourselves. Watching our 1.5 lb 28 weeker turn into a 2 year old 30 pounder and doing all the “normal” toddler things is just amazing. I swear we clap at everything new he does. Counting. Clap. Saying letters. Clap. Kick a ball. Clap.

    Oh, well. There are worse things in the world than knowing your parents are proud of you. If we create a praise junkie, so be it. 🙂

    Congrats on the pulling up! These are big moments! 🙂
