Will work for smiles
I had the amazing blessing of seeing Charlie's first smile today. A real smile, not that gas nonsense.
He was propped up in his little doughnut, calmly surveying his realm when I came around to the opposite side of the crib.
He looked at me, made eye contact and smiled. I laughed and said
"Are you smiling at me?"
To reward me for being so smart, he gave me another one, broader this time.
I did not capture the moment electronically..I soaked it into my very soul. This picture was taken a moment later and I think a good caption would be. "Well, that worked just the way I planned it. She's mine now."
Back in July of 1980 I scored another first smile from Colin (Jake saved his for his Dad) ...this time Jimmy grabbed the moment.
