Baby Slaps Mum at the Shock of a Snow Flake!

It’s arguably one of the best things about being a parent; watching every ‘first’ that your baby experiences. Milestones are celebrated across the world and rightly so!

However, there are some major ‘firsts’ that get the limelight and the most attention:

First smile

First roll

First time they slept through the night

First steps

First words

First day of school

And so on…


What makes these any better than any other ‘first’ remains a mystery to me and I feel that there are so many ‘firsts’ that get overlooked. To be honest, almost everything in the first few months is a ‘first,’ and these should also be celebrated and recognised.

First time outside when you leave the hospital

First time in the bath

First time in their cot

And so on…


Some of my favourite ‘firsts’ that I’ve witnessed in the last 6 months of Ted’s life though are as follows:

His first smile at me was a very special moment. Knowing that he recognises me by giving me a smile is truly amazing.

His first fart was hilarious. (And his first fart in the bath was even better!)

I remember his first giggle; music to my ears!

And his first time in the car seat has stuck in my mind too. I drove like a very old women… 50% below the speed limit at all times and I checked my blindspots!

He enjoyed the first time I played some Bon Jovi to him and he enjoyed wearing his Arsenal kit for the first time. (He did…and he will!).

The first time he reached his arms out for me was lovely and recently, the first time he rolled all the way across the room was a moment to remember.

But one of my all time favourite ‘firsts,’ was the first time he saw (and felt on his face) snow. And what makes it even better is that we caught it on camera… it’s hilariously funny!

So there you have it… Baby slaps mum! I guess he doesn’t like snow very much?! Who would have thought that a snow could cause such a reaction! It’s one that Richard Hammond would be proud to cover on his Wild Weather series!

What’s your most memorable ‘first?’ What ‘first’ are you most looking forward to?

    Too funny, and too cute! How much longer is he going to be able to get away with that! Don’t blame Ted for being angry with the snow! Blah bring on the warmer weather. Great stuff as usual for

      Even as an adult I still find it hilarious each time he does it. I often get ‘the look’ from the wife!

    Lmao! That’s awsome! First’s are great, too many to mention. Somebody reminded me that there will also be lasts as well, should I slap them?
