There's a first time for everything: taking our first baby steps, running, jumping, learning to eat/write/read or produce our first drawing. And it doesn't stop there - sometimes we need years of training to accomplish 'a first' and the feel-good factor is amazing when we do! Recording these moments is priceless, whether we're excited, surprised or even really scared...
