Bindi Irwin took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a snapshot of herself lovingly holding her one-year-old daughter Grace Warrior. The two stood on the beach with Grace buried in Irwin’s arms, a sunset up ahead. “My love,” she captioned the post. “There are countless adventures waiting for you on the horizon, a whole world for you to create positive change within. Until then, I will carry you and be there to encourage every one of your dreams.”
While many of those thrilling adventures are yet to come, we’ve gotten a sneak peek at some of Grace’s earliest exciting escapades — from confidently taking steps at the Australia Zoo to saying some of her first words (prepare yourself emotionally for that video).
We’re counting down the most adorable milestones that Irwin has experienced as a mom — so far! —and can’t wait to see all the upcoming big parenting moments in store for this family.
