Today I had one of the most beautiful “firsts” so far.
We met the youngest member of our family, my cousin’s beautiful daughter, for the first time today. It’s been absolutely lovely, seeing our two little ones together. F. is about twice her age, so that they are very similar in some ways and completely different in others. Funny to think that one day we’ll think of them as exactly the same age.
At one point, they were lying next to each other, reaching out for each other with their little hands. It was such a beautiful moment. Two little ones like that, barely aware of their own existence, yet they are connecting on some level. It’s moments like this that make life truly worth living.
