A father and son moment

Posted in Personal by Matt at WelcometoIllinois on December 16, 2008

Last night I fed my little boy his milk for the first time (also his first time on the bottle). This has to be one of the best moments in fatherhood in my opinion.

What made it even better was that while I was distracted trying to feed myself at the same time G – as I’m going to call him on here from now on – put both hands on the bottle and pushed it towards his mouth.

Our portage representative had said he should be putting one hand on the bottle pretty quickly but we should expect it to take a month or so before he was attempting to use both hands.

G was straight in there however. Earlier in the evening he was trying to hold some toy keys with both hands as well, although the bottle was a lot easier. I couldn’t be more proud.

    What a beautiful moment, thanks for sharing. It sounds like G is doing very well and is surrounded by such a wonderful and loving family and one proud dad.
