I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful. ~Author Unknown
Today, our littlest man turned 6-weeks old. And how did he reward us? With the most precious of smiles.
I saw his precious mouth starting to turn up at the corners a week or so ago, but thought it was way too early to truly be a smile. Probably just gas. :)
But tonight…oh how my heart melted tonight when during our “documenting” photo session he turned all smiles on me! I was overcome with joyful tears.
It’s almost as if he’s saying, “I know how happy I make you, momma. And just think…you don’t have to go back to work. Ever.”
Okay, that might be a bit of a stretch. But for the foreseeable future, there is no outside-of-the-home work for me and that makes ME smile! (In the past, 6-weeks marked the half-way point of my maternity leave…usually causing sadness to begin swelling in my heart as tears were welling in my eyes!)
Wishing you all a night full of sweet dreams and smiles!
P.S. I added music back on to my blog. Feel free to turn it off if you are distracted by the music or in a position to not be able to listen. I will say that I added two of my favorite “baby” pieces of music. Beautiful Boy by John Lennon and Baby Mine from the Dumbo soundtrack by Walt Disney.
