Since those first glimmers of smiles around 6 weeks I seem to spend a lot of my time hovering over the twins with my phone trying the capture the beautiful image that I can see when they finally let that grin take over their little faces. The first weeks with any baby seem endless and with two it is a constant cycle of feeds, changes, sleeping but then come those moments when their waking hours and filled with curious eyes watching, spontaneous smiles and the beginnings of gurgles as they make sense of the world and people around them. It’s no secret that this is the most amazing time for a parent, the moment when everything is worth it; the exhaustion, night feeds, all the tough bits seem that bit easier when your face is the one that your baby looks for above all others, when your voice is the one they move their head to follow and when your daft faces and silly voices are the things that can make them beam. It feels so needed; that little confirmation that you are doing the right thing, that you are their everything and that the bond you feel is totally real.
While trying to capture the precious smile I’m also treated to the funniest of faces, how could I not share?!
