Henry smiled for the first time today! It was the most beautiful, heart-warming, toothless, chubby grin and both of us were there to see it. His daddy was kissing him and laughing, and then it happened! This time I am sure that it wasn’t trapped gas, and once he did it the first time, he kept doing it as a reaction to both of our smiling faces looking down at him.
The crying part of his communication came as soon as he was born. Now he is smiling to tell us that he is happy, being his mother has just got so much more rewarding. I can’t believe how one little grin can make all the tiredness, stress, and dirty nappies completely worth it! It’s his first major development, and he’s not even four weeks old yet!
