Friday, April 30

I've been reduced to a big pile of mush.

Milo smiled at me! His first real smile!

It happened on Wednesday. He had been dozing in his swing, but it was time for me to change his diaper and get him ready to go (we had a big lunch date with my dear friend Melynda). So I unsnapped his safety harness and scooped my sleeping baby up. As I did, he opened his eyes, looked right at me, and gave me a big, toothless grin.

And 30 seconds later he frowned and briefly even considered crying.

But I know what I saw, and I saw a little boy who recognized his momma and was happy to see her. And a little piece of my heart just melted away.

Love this post! That first smile will get you acting like a fool to make him do it again. :)

The first smile is about the best thing ever, isn't it?
