First Smiles

Tuesday, January 11, 2011 4 Comments A+ a-

Ashlynn loves her bath time, it completely relaxes her.  And today was a particularly special time, Ashlynn bestowed her first purposeful smiles on me!  She’s been smiling in her sleep for a couple of weeks, but today during her bath, she turned her head towards me, locked eyes, and smiled.  Not once, but twice!  It made this mama’s heart so happy! 

Unfortunately I didn’t catch it on camera, I was too transfixed by my baby girl’s smile to remember to grab the camera.  But I did capture the rest of her  bath time.

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.

She's beautiful Jenn! I love the pictures. There's nothing like that first smile. I will always remember the first time Ellie smiled at me.
