A “Gerber baby” look
To get THE picture, you must be patient! Do not try to get your child to perform, that is an adult’s anguish! Your child can give you good memories whether he is sulking or sparkling with happiness. Sometimes, tears precede great moments of calm and remember that your child, if he is forced to smile because you ask him to, will give you fake grins that you will not like either!
My thing? I wait, I wait, I watch and I let things come. And then, after a while, something happens and a contact is made. Then, I have the baby’s undivided attention and only then I pull faces and sing – I must be honest, I am a very bad singer but it always works! – to obtain the coveted smile! Click!
