Some of you may remember gorgeous little Hannah (above) from her newborn session a couple of years ago. Hannah was born tongue tied: a condition that affects many newborns and causes much stress to parents who are unfamiliar with parenting let alone the complications that can come with it. I wrote about Hannah and her amazing parents in an earlier blog entry. You can find it here.
Meet Charlie ….. baby brother to gorgeous Hannah.
Isn't he just dreamy? I am so in love with his gallery!!!
We had the pleasure of meeting sweet little Charlie just before New Years, at his own Studio Newborn Session. Such a contrast to his big sister, Charlie was a dream come true to work with…. but only just. We managed to get all his pics in before he decided he wasn't playing any more.
Not long after his session Charlie's Mum and Dad realised that he too was tongue tied. What are the odds? Julie was already altering her diet as she had recognised the same type of food intolerances in her little man…and now this too? All I can say is that my hat goes off to this amazing mum. She listened to her gut and got onto the doctor straight away. By the time I saw them for their viewing appointment last month Charlie's tongue had already been surgically released. What a relief.
The results? One very settled little baby boy and one very happy family. Such a pleasure to see Julie so chilled at her viewing.
So often as parents, whether new parents or second, third, or more times around, we just 'know' when something isn't right with our little ones. My advice? Whether you think it's something small or something more get it checked.
We have an amazing medical system here in Australia and so much support for those who need it. There is no harm in asking for a medical opinion. If it's nothing, then it's nothing and you can move on…. but if it's something more you can get the support that is available. If you still aren't happy then get a second opinion. At the end of the day you are the parent. Go with your gut and get answers…. then you can hopefully get to enjoy your family like this amazing family of four.
Let's have a sneaky peak at some more of Charlie's amazing gallery.
Look at Hannah now. She is such a darling girl, full of energy. She radiates happiness and makes my heart sing every time I see her little face…. and she just adores her little brother.
