Wonderful Milestones

Well, Ava finally learned to roll over from her back to her tummy. Only six months behind, but, oh well. It got my thinking of some other wonderful milestones in our children's lives that they don't put in the baby books:

-When you are able to send the kids in for a shower/bath and they are able to get reasonably clean without your constant supervision

-When the kids are old enough to tell you what the babysitter was REALLY like

-When you don't have to wipe, or 'check their bottom' anymore

-The first time they're able to 'read' (recite) their favorite book to you

-Can stand on his own, so you don't have to hold him on your lap when you go into a public restroom

-Is self-burping

-Can pick up food and eat on their own

-Can actually blow their nose (and know to do it only when there's a tissue in front of it)

-Has figured out what it feels like just BEFORE throwing up

-Can change a baby coll/barbie doll/GI Joe's clothes without help

-Can give you more than 15 seconds notice that they have to go to the bathroom
