Oh, the smiles.
I had forgotten how perfect and priceless little tiny baby smiles are. It’s the first real emotional connection you make with your child and it’s amazing.
She started smiling a lot a couple of weeks ago and I’ve already figured out all of the things that make her show me those bubbly baby gums. She loves hearing me whistle and loves the breath that blows on her face when I do. Mostly, I just have to say “hiiii” in a really high-pitched voice and she perks right up. The cutest thing is to watch Knox imitate me talking sweet to her. He loves to lie beside her on the floor whispering and talking in a sing-songy voice saying things like “Hi, seet girl!,” and “What’s a matta?,” “Wuv you.” It kills me every time.
