She finally did it…really did it…She smiled at me–not just once in a random sort of way but three times in a row when she looked at ME!! Please don’t tell me it’s gas…this baby has had gas and she DOES NOT smile with gas. It was a genuine, Hi! Mommy–I love looking at your funny face kinda smile.My heart melted…all the screaming (from the aforementioned gas) all the sleepless nights thusfar, all the missed dinners with my family as I sat by myslef on the sofa nursing this wee one seemed totally insignificant (which they are). All because she smiled at me!! I am in love!!
