Daughter smile

The Little One has been quicker to smile than her brother: at around 4 or 5 weeks old, you could expect to see one. Now, the smiles are pretty frequent. Sometimes the smiles occur in the midst of a crying jag.

The baby is almost 2 months old now. We have only begun to provide the care and assistance that her life needs. This is especially true in my case, because I have been mostly wrangling the Monkey while the Monkey Mama cares for the Little One. And after those early, urgent days of hospitalization, I'm only now starting to give her care.

Of course, our love and care for her is unconditional. But her smile gives a sense that she appreciates these things, and that we can share joy in our common journey. It is a wonderful, joyful sensation that holds every other feeling in suspension from the corners of her mouth and eyes.

Hi--Boy, I thought you weren't blogging because every time I checked there wasn't anything new. But lo and behold, I needed to "reload" the page, and up pops all these wonderful entries! How nice to read about this incredible time. "Q Bee" is cute, btw. --Constance
