First Smiles


Dear Asa,

You’ve been smiling a lot the last few weeks.  My favorite is when I look down at you to discover that you’re already grinning at me.  There’s nothing in the world like the feeling of your child being completely enamored with you.  (I’m sure that sounds narcissistic, but it’s true!)

I love the way you start to smile with one side of your mouth (like Elvis) before the other side catches up.  Or when you’re only slightly amused and do the half-smile.  I love it.  And I love you.

    I’m pretty sure he’s smiling because it’s almost my birthday and he’s really excited about it! (that or he just pooped)
