Sometimes, something very simple will get me all verklempt.

Yes, I know it’s just a swing, and I know other kids her age can totally do this. But until recently, little M rode in the baby swing. She was not strong enough for the regular ones.
It’s a little thing, and probably not even a real milestone, but it made me so happy to see my girl so happy to swing.
Such a little thing, but sometimes these little things seem so big and important…like a swing.

    Ahhh….I almost cried reading this post. The precious moments in our little ones lives are what makes mothering so special. Congrats M on your big accomplishment!
