The sweetest gift
Yes, our children are the biggest gift we will ever receive. They bring so much love and happiness - more than we ever imagined that we can feel and experience! And from the moment they arrive, as a parent, there is nothing you wouldn't possibly do to keep them happy and healthy and safe.
As a parent, you want to take in every moment, every little wink, and yawn, and cuddle, and smile. Memorise the best you can, how their little hairs curled up at the back of their fragile necks, how they sucked on their tiny fingers and the pout they made when they were starting to get peckish again.
A million little things that you want to treasure forever!
When I was born, some twenty plus years ago, my dad would sit over my crib with his video camera, filming me as I laid in bed, less than a month old. Trust me, it didn't make for very exciting footage... But that video is so valuable to my dear parents. It's the little things that are such treasured gifts to a new parent.
Luckily, we have cameras to save those moments and keep them with us forever!
