Thinking of fairies and babies’ laughter

Taking a step back from that with this thought to pause, take a deep breathe and release...

 

“...Because you see when a new baby laughs for the first time a new fairy is born,
and as there are always new babies there are always new fairies”
(From Peter Pan)


Nathan’s laugh captured on camera for the first time
(circa 3 months old)

"Know you what it is to be a child?
It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief;
it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear,
it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses,
lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything,
for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul"
(Francis Thomson)

 

[P.S. On the second fairy that came to live in our house]

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
