2011 - Dylan's Firsts

I have declared that 2012 is the year to get stuff done!  Jim and I already completed one project each.  I'll blog about that soon.  But first, something else I want to get done... Dylan's 2011 firsts!  I did this last year and it was so much fun looking at it this year.

January - First snow fort

January - First science class

February - first Pittsburgh stage show - Madagascar Live (I won the tickets!)

 March - First fire station field trip

May - First time letterboxing

 May - First "big boy bike"

End of May? - stopped taking naps.  "Wanna play?  Ready to play?  When are we gonna play?"

 June - first Vacation Bible School (at my parent's church)

July - first movie in a theatre - "Winnie the Pooh"

 July - first private swim lessons (with Valerie).  First time floating and putting his head underwater!

July - First time driving golf balls (at Bills Golfland, my childhood hangout!)

July - First wave pool and water slides.  Also, first time he only went on "big kid rides". (Idlewild)

 August - first time at a beach and boardwalk.  First time in the ocean.  (Ocean City, Maryland)

September - first baseball game and first time running the bases on the field.

 October - first time he picked his own apples in an orchard.  (Triple B Farms)

 October - first time playing tennis.  (With Mommy, at Heritage Park)

October - first time to make and eat caramel apples.

 December - first carriage ride with Santa.

December - First time ice skating.  (Bladerunners in Harmarville)

He also learned to read this year, (Level 1 books),  add, subtract, multiply, and became completely fascinated with counting money.

 I'm excited to see what 2012 will bring!

What a great idea to record all the "firsts". Dylan had so many, I love the picture of him at the baseball game.

Happy New Year Jen!

So neat to have this all recorded. So many wonderful things you've exposed him to. He's got quite the golf stance.
