6-Week Pic/First Smiles!

Hello everyone!

I was lurking around the "Introduce Yourself" section of this board and thought to myself..."I'm so glad to have gotten through those months...the shock of pregnancy, the scare of early testing, and the throes of gestational diabetes"!

It's hard to believe that not quite a year ago, we found ourselves in similar shoes even if the circumstances surrounding each of our pregnancies/conceptions were different! Don't miss the anxiety and "coming to terms with this" at all.

Just LOVIN' being a momma to Mary, Ben and Luke.

Who by the way, must love me being his momma b/c he smiled for the first time on his 6-week birthday! I swear I thought the corners of his mouth were turning up earlier that week, but thought it was way too early,

But check out his pix!

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm off to pick up my kindergartner who I miss so much during the mornings! She, on the other hand, is having way too much fun at school to miss momma! *sigh* :)

Those are smiles alright, Val! How sweet. I have actually caught several "gassy smiles" on camera (and btw, I don't believe they're actually caused by gas, but are actually kind of "practice" smiles), and I'm pretty sure I've seen a couple already recently at various times while talking to him, but I can't wait to start seeing those "I'm smiling at you because you're my mommy and I love you" smiles.

Val,
He is just adorable. Love the smiles. Declan started smiling too and it is so fun to see him smile. I love your idea of putting a sign w/ how old he is when you take his picture.

I have definitely started seeing smiles in the past few days, the looking straight at me, wide-mouthed kind like in this pic, not just the fleeting smiles while napping. It's not that often yet (he'll be 6 weeks Tues), but they've started. Can't wait to see more of them!

I've also encountered my first "true" smiles this week-- although Mateo has actually been smiling here and there for weeks already, this week (also 6 weeks for him) something changed and now the smiles are definitely intentional. As cute as they are in pics, they're even better in person accompanied by gurgles and coos. I'm lovin being a momma too!
