He did it! After 2 weeks of swimming classes my 3-year old just today (in fact, about an hour ago) let hold of his death-grip, after being bribed with candy, and swam all by himself… with the help of swimmies, of course. Finally, he was actually enjoying himself and learning how to maneuver around the pool to get where he wanted to go. Similarly, my eight-month old, just this morning, figured out how to sit up by himself from the laying down position. I have not witnessed this event yet, but have found him sitting up when I know the last I looked he was laying down. It’s a day of “Firsts” and I can just cry I’m so proud of my little guys. 

DDA has also achieved many Firsts since we began as the first totally digital Advertising Agency in the U.S. in 1994. We were the first Digital Photography studio in Pennsylvania. We were one of the first Search Engine Optimization Companies in the U.S. in 1996 and in 2005 we were one of the first custom website developers to offer search engine copywriting by in-house staff writers! We have so many firsts, in fact, we have dedicated a whole page of them on our website. Click here to read more.

So, I’m going to spend the rest of the day knowing that new and exciting things are happening at home and at work… because, resulting from these Firsts I know my 3-year old will ask “when are we getting a swimming pool” and after sitting up my 8-month-old will be crawling and walking, which means putting all small toys away and baby-proofing again. And, because DDA is so fast-paced and focused on innovation our clients will benefit from our Firsts and those to come.
