Sunshine Smiles


probleme mit anyoption Miss Elma is a sunshine baby. Despite being born in the middle of winter, and it being dark at the actual moment of her birth, the next morning was light and beautiful, sparkling across the frost on the cars parked outside the hospital, dancing all the way to my tiny new baby, wrapped up in layers of cotton, wool and the ubiquitous green hospital blanket, casting aside the rain and gloom of the previous week. And through the cold spring, the late snows and the weeks and weeks of near constant drizzle, she has stayed sunny and bright, a happy joyful little baby.

In each of the thousands of photos of the girls I’ve got a gateway to the memory, the visual stimulus to bring back the rest of the feelings of that moment. And so I can preserve them, treasure them, and save them up against a rainy day. Literally and figuratively.

And then there are the relieved smiles of a little girl whose Mama had allowed herself to become too far away, but who has now returned to scoop her up in enveloping arms; the smiles that come in the middle of a feed, breaking off from the serious job of nursing to gaze adoringly upwards with a little milky burp; the smile that breaks off the morning chirruping as I scuttle to pick up a still sleepy baby; or those early morning smiles, when we’re the only people awake in the house, to tell me that there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.



Those smiles, they’re all mine.
