“There are no words that can describe the euphoria you feel when your baby recognizes you for the first time and smiles.”

Jared Padalecki

Special thanks to TC. We’re sharing her essays and photos again this week. Here’s Day 9 of 10, (Gems 7.84):

Babies

Babies have an interesting effect on people whether they are human or animal babies. What is it about the smallest of any species that makes us smile? Is it their innocence and their newness? Maybe it is the way they feel in our arms small and venerable. Is it the way they move when they are a little older able to walk or crawl in an uncoordinated and awkward way? When babies cry we all know that they are unhappy, hungry, tired or in need of a diaper change and their needs tug on our heartstrings. When they laugh we laugh too, their giggle is infections and our hearts lift with joy. This is not to say we don’t feel annoyed when a small child is misbehaving and being unruly which is totally different from the earlier mentioned crying. Take notice the next time you are out and there is a baby nearby how you feel and watch how others react. Babies hold a special place in most of our hearts and it shows on our faces whenever we are in their presence. We stop, watch and smile without speaking, enjoying the moment.
