Smiles for the MacDaddy!

Finally, Mac smiled at the MacDaddy -- which gave me the opportunity to grab the camera!

So it's not just me, and it's not just gas, huh?  As I've mentioned in an earlier post, Mac's been smiling for about a week now, but only at me, and only in the morning. Until this evening. He had a nice, long afternoon nap and was particularly alert and (obviously) in a good mood when the MacDaddy started talking to him... and BAM! He gives MacDaddy a smile. And then some.

This is why people have babies. It's what I've been waiting for. I always told myself that even if the sleepless nights were really bad (though they haven't been), it would all be worth it when he smiled at me. But I haven't just been waiting for the past month-and-a-half; I've been waiting since January, when I first found out I was pregnant. Or maybe ever since the MacDaddy and I even talked about having a baby.

There's nothing better than seeing your baby smile at you. It's how you know, beyond any doubt, that you've done something right.
Chillin' in the boppy afterward.
