20/52

"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."

I know that originally I promised individual portraits, but this week something beautiful happened, the girls recognised each other for the first time. It is one of the most amazing things I will ever witness, the bond between my identical twin girls. They cooed and smiled, flapped their arms and wiggled their legs in the air. They even tried to gently touch each other's faces.

As a first time mother I really had no idea about the different developmental milestones and steps babies go through. It delights me every time Maggie and Elisabeth do something new. Little things like a smile or a coo could make me so happy all day.

I can't pick my favourite out of the following photos I took. Elisabeth is on the left and Maggie is on the right.

What beautiful photos of two beautiful girls! I have often wondered when twins 'make the connection' with each other. I wonder when they realise they are looking at the exact image of themselves? How lovely for you to see and capture that special moment!
