Today My Butter Bean is 5 weeks old! And he finally smiled AT ME! And I was no more successful at catching it on film than when I tried to take pictures of his eyes open in the hopspittle. He's been smiling at everyone else for weeks now. His Daddy. His sister. His brother. The dog. The picture hanging over the couch. The cushions on the couch. Everyone but me! He'd been hungry and poopy and gassy. So I changed his didee, fed him and got him burped. He was happy. I was holding him upright in my lap and I was speaking silly to him. I asked, "Do you feel better now? Do you?" And he looked right at me and gave me a sweet, shy little smile! It was magic!
