A lot of it is a blur, but I still remember the moment.
My wife had survived what was a very difficult delivery & was still in recovery.
I was alone with my newborn twins, besotted.
Jake was sleeping, Ellie was crying.
Then she reached out & wrapped her tiny little fingers around my finger & stopped crying, held on as if she would never let go & went back to sleep.
Both of them.
Beautiful in sleep, beautiful awake.
As I wrote at the time “It was a moment where it felt like that up until then I hadn’t really lived”
They were beautiful then; they are beautiful now.
Jake & Ellie, my beautiful twins
