Of smiling...

I've heard it said that a baby's first real smiles don't appear until about 6 weeks of age. I don't believe it. I am certain my little guy has been smiling at me for that last few days and he is only 3 weeks old. Mandy was also an early smiler, according to the norm. We were basking in her sweet smiles at about 2-3 weeks as well.

This smiling business is hard work. Holding his tiny hands takes no work at all.

The grasp of his tiny fingers feels like perfection. 

Back to sleep he goes.

And yes, his hair looks redder and his eyes look bluer every day. Crazy.

This is sooooo sweet. I love those smiles. I also loved your post about having a boy, but I didn't have time to comment on it. Or did I? I can't remember now.

Oh, he is just cuter and cuter by the day! Yes, his hair looks red! My little brother and all my cousins are red heads. Red heads can make good money doing commercials... my brother and cousins both got scouted out and made a good chunk of college money when they were about 7 years old. Maybe with his early smiles it means he's a natural fit?

I think I've decided I want a red head.

I was just going to ask: does he have red hair?

Can't get enough of that precious little face. And that smile...oh so handsome!

Baby smiles are THE best!
