From the birth of your little one to his baby steps, we usually remember the first times those milestone moments happen - but the last time you change his nappy? It might just go unmarked. These are just some things you may want to add to the magical memory bank…
The last time he called you 'mama'
Now it’s ‘mum’ *sob*. [Corbis]
The last time he falls asleep on your lap
Sure you may have had a dead thigh for the rest of the afternoon, but you secretly miss stroking his hair and cuddling him while he drops off. [Corbis]
Last time you carried him
The walk from the car into the house feels weird now, like you've forgotten something… [Corbis]
The last time you read him The Gruffalo…
You find yourself reading it to yourself now, just because you miss it a tiny bit. [Corbis]
The last time you pureed his food
You’re thinking, ‘soon, he won’t need me at all!’. [Corbis]
The last time you breastfed
OK, so it gave you sore nipples but it was such a bonding experience. [Corbis]
The last time you went to your baby yoga class
He looked so cute (attempting) the downward dog pose. [Corbis]
The last time you used the baby bath instead of a normal bath
What’s next? The adult loo? He’ll be driving you around soon, too! [Corbis]
The last time he fitted into a baby sleep suit
He looks so grown up in his spiderman pyjamas… [Corbis]
Last time he crawled
And he hasn’t stopped running away from the camera ever since. [Corbis]
The last time he sat in his highchair
But at least the food is less likely to hit the walls now… [Corbis]
