Say Cheese!

The big news around our house? Harry has started smiling. Pretty cute, right?

Harry has begun to smile for real. Not in his sleep. Not when he's gassy. He's at his best in the morning after the first diaper change and feeding. Kevin or I (or sometimes both of us) put him on his changing table, give his mobile a spin, and wait for the smiles while he cycles his legs and coos. Probably not the most exciting thing in the world for anyone else, but I fall in love with him every time he smiles because I'm sure, just SURE, that he's smiling for me.

Frances, you have plenty of company! Not one person has said that Harry looks like me, unless you count the single mention by my mom when Harry was sleeping.

Personally, I think everyone says he looks like Kevin because they're male and have the same coloring. But Harry's first hair has been falling out and some new hair is growing in, so I can hope that his hair will be brown. I wouldn't trade those blue eyes for anything, though!
