Smile

We've been seeing a little peek here and there at what might be a smile.

Aaron got one days ago.

On Sunday night I was pretty sure he was trying as hard as he could to give me one, but it was just on the edge of a smile.

This morning, his sweet blissfully beautiful little face greeted me with a smile. Still kind of a half smile, but a smile.

Tonight I got a full body, shining eyes, face lit up, without a doubt big fat smile from my baby boy.
While he was holding his head up.
You know, that baby who wasn't expected to hit either of these milestones for quite some time, if at all.

Today I feel like the most blessed mama in the whole world.

And though this isn't a picture of today's smile, here is a sleep smile until I can capture a waking one.....
(you should know that he is smiling here because he was about to embark on a sleepless night and apparently that is amusing)

I find it funny how much a blog can make you feel connected to a person but our family has sure fallen in love with yours! You are amazing, while keeping it real. You've inspired and motivated me in ways you'll never know. Thanks so much for sharing all that you do!
