The first cuddle.
It’s a moment most mothers remember. Long, fleeting, loud, peaceful.
The mottled skin. The sticky hair. The papery nails. The huffy breaths.
Lyndsey’s baby, Ward, arrived three and a half months early. When he was four days old and just 680 grams, she got to hold him for the first time.
Her husband made this video for her birthday. Watching Ward grow from being a crumpled little tissue to a thriving baby boy who laughs, rolls and eats a cake lathered in icing is such a beautiful tribute to their son – but most of all, to Lyndsey.
Take a look.
