First Smiles {My Captured Moment}


This picture was taken on our second wedding anniversary in December 2011. We had booked into the Hilton in Manchester and taken our 5 week old little boy with us. We had a lovely day pottering around the Christmas markets with O all snuggled up nice and cosy in his pram.

As we weren’t quite brave enough to venture too far from the hotel we booked dinner in their restaurant and O was such a good boy he slept the entire time we were eating. He woke up just as we were heading back to the room, so we lay him on the huge double bed between us. Then something amazing happened, he smiled at us for the very first time!

Before quickly falling back asleep.

    Ahh what a little cutie! I work just down the road from the Hilton in Manchester and walk past it every day to go to and from work. Podium is a fab restaurant and the afternoon tea in Cloud 23 is divine! Sounds like it was a lovely ‘first’ family stay for you all. xx

    Such a cutie, it is hard to remember them so little isn’t it. We have a picture of the first smile in our lounge. Really makes me smile. x
