Year 2 Day 122: Smile Watch - Day 1
Our little bundle is six weeks old today and we've been waiting with bated breath for the coming of the magic, six-week "social smile." Well, let me clarify...MOMMY has been waiting, maybe even trying to coax and/or bribe our little mite into releasing a bit of "puppies and rainbows" from his angelic face in the form of a simple cheesy grin.
And the results...no dice.
As this is naturally an exhausting process anyway, he wasn't able to muster 5 minutes of alertness to take in Daddy's XBox 101 lesson for today.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
