Year 2 Day 129: Smiles for Daddy
Ryan is an equal opportunity smiler so Daddy gets his share as well. We've only gotten a couple a day since he started and we're starting to feel like we're acting like big dorks to get them. It's amazing what a baby will lead you to do when you are aiming to get feedback from them in the form of smiles and coos.
Something else to smile about are Ryan's new wrist toys from The Early Learning Centre store. He has been very aware of his elephant rattle from his play mat and is really good at turning his head to the sound. I wanted to encourage him to move his arms and legs when he's lying down, but also distract him from crying so I purchased this set. The lamb squeeks and the bee rattles...so we'll see how they do.
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!
