Yet, it is those amazing moments of baby-hood and toddler-hood where the firsts are celebrated with joy and wonderment. I can remember being so excited and dancing around after the first tinkle in the potty, or that first real smile when they baby was about two months old. All those sleepless nights and screaming fits of colic melt away and mean nothing when your little baby looks at you and coos for the first time.
Life is full of firsts, and those very first firsts are the ones to be cherished the most!
My last pregnancy was unexpected, very unexpected. I didn't even realize that I was pregnant until I was about eight weeks along. I was in the job which I had worked and sacrificed so much for. We didn't have any plans to add to our family, as we had our million dollar family. When it dawned on me that I may be pregnant I was completely taken off guard. But, it didn't take too long to get used to the idea of having a newborn to love, and once again realized that God has a sense of humour.
The pregnancy was not easy or simple though. Jillian fought and beat a lot of odds to arrive safely. I remember being so scared the day I gave birth to Jillian. When it came time to push the room filled with doctors and nurses and I knew that they just didn't know what was going to happen. That day, the most wondrous first was the sound of Jillian taking her very first breath and crying for the first time!

The firsts don't end when children are through those first couple of years of life. I've come to find that each age offers a special first, and cherish each and every one as it happens.
