Journalistic blog

Franky smiled at me yesterday for the first time. It was probably the most exciting moment motherhood has presented so far. I've been reading along in the week-by-week baby book my neighbor lent to me and it talked about how by week 6 he should be smiling at people he recognizes. So I've been working on it with him.

I'll put my face directly above his about 12 inches and talk and coo at him. And yesterday I got my reward: a big fat smile from my most favorite creature of all time. I've yet to capture a picture of this beautiful sight. I almost don't want to. It's like our little secret that he knows who I am:

I'm his mommy.

Love, ali

What a little cutie. No fair hogging his smile--I want to see it!
