Cohen smiled his first real smile (while awake, anyhow) at Daddy yesterday at 3 weeks, 3 days old. The beautiful happy expression in his eyes was one of the best moments of our lives. I was jealous for a moment that the smile wasn’t meant for me, but then he offered me one just a short while later, so I got over it 🙂 Since then, he’s given me 2 more. It’s a pretty amazing feeling- seeing your little creation show you an emotion other than sleepy or upset for the very first time. Here’s to many more smiles along the way.
Smile for me, baby. October 9, 2010
