Milestones are hit practically every month with infant babies. And my girls were no exception to the rule. A few of these milestones were my favorites. One such one was when they learned to smile, because nothing was sweeter or more endearing to my heart than seeing my kids smile those first few few times with their cute little baby smiles.
In this above photo, Emma was in the supported sitting phase and smiling a mile wide while I was holding her little hands. This was in January of 2010 and she was just about 6 months old here. For Emma, who was a colicky, unhappy baby for the first few months of her life that smile was truly music to my ears, as well as magic to my eyes and I will never forget how happy I honestly was when she started to smile more and more like times like this above picture. Trust me, I waited a long time for these smiles.
And then there was my Lily. This picture was also taken in January, but of the following year in 2011. Lily wasn’t even three months old and smiling already. She was my happy baby by all intents and purposes. I have to admit I wasn’t used to this, because Emma unfortunately with colic wasn’t happy for the first 2 months of her life. So, to have Lily smiling for the first time at 6 weeks old was truly a new one for me. And probably why I just couldn’t help, but snap her doing it every chance I could get.
I honestly try not comparing my kids, but I am their mother and just can’t help, but take note of the differences in my two kids. Believe me when I tell you I love both my kids with all my heart, but they are two different little people and as their mother I am aware and try my best to love them for they are and not when they actually accomplished something like a milestone, but again as their mother (and writer, too) I wrote everything down when it happened so I wouldn’t forget and be able to share with them when they got older and asked me.
And even know I love when they smile for me and do it so freely with their whole faces!! So, I couldn’t resist including this in Flashback Wednesdays and share with you. Hope you enjoyed and for more Wordless Wednesday posts, please feel free to visit Cyndi’s blog, Pictimilitude.
