First times .........................

So its been a while again since I got on here but with a new baby time flies!

Its been a magical time & it set me thinking how wonderful it must be to experience things for the first time as my son does everyday .... I can't imagine what its like to look at something as simple as a tree for example & never have seen one before, not know what it is, what it does but to marvel in the colour, the way the leaves move & the noise they make! As adults we become blase about everyday objects & don't often have time to sit & wonder how, why, where or just admire the beauty of something.

I tried to think when was the last time I saw something completely new to me, something I had never seen before, when had I experienced that rush of awe or thirst for knowledge at something new? Then it dawned on me ..... the arrival of my son, such a new experience to a first time Mum. I now see new things through my sons eyes & through his actions (its almost like being a child again!) his first smile, a thing we take for granted & maybe don't flash enough!? Learning to roll from his back to front!! A skill we take for granted!

This week he had his first taste of food! Imagine that .... to have never tasted food before ..imagine how strange it must feel in your mouth, the texture, the warmth, what do you do with it .....???

So when was the last time you had a totally new experience ...................??
