"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."
I have wanted to join in Jodi's portrait link up for some time. During their stay in hospital the girls both had nasal gastric tubes taped to their face (it felt quite momentous when we removed them for the final two days when they could eat exclusively from me!), and whilst we could see past it often it pulled on their face and irritated their eyes. So we have kept the photos of them private. Since coming home I've been quite busy as you can imagine. So after 3 weeks I feel a bit more organised.
I think it will be important to capture the girls separately as well as together, as cute as twin photos are!
So here are my first two portraits. Credit to Rob who took them.
Maggie sleeping peacefully. Don't let that fool you, even though she's still only 2880g she can make a lot of noise!
Elisabeth's expression here is priceless! They are becoming so alert and taking in their surroundings and us.
