You dash into the room, climb onto the big bed.

You are delighted to see mommy, yet you are overjoyed to touch the baby to whom you have only spoken through mommy’s belly. 

So soft, so cuddly, so angelic. And the subtle scent of the baby’s head. 

How can there be something so tiny? How can a yawn be so fascinating to watch? What are you dreaming when you frown?

Although the baby smell will fade one day, and you both will grow bigger, and may fight with each other over toys and snacks at every chance you get, may these pictures remind you that you were each other’s first love.
