Trixie has hit a couple of milestones that I haven’t had a chance to mention. She smiles now. This has been in development for about two weeks.
Of course, babies can smile almost from day one, but that’s an involuntary reflex. Usually they are asleep and they are doing something in their pants. I’m talking about a social smile. That is, she will look at one of us and in response to us looking back, she gives a huge smile. (I’ll try to get a picture up soon.)
This is fun because it’s nice to get feedback. And she’s a very happy baby when she’s not screaming. Additionally, it’s a milestone of social behavior, and if she wasn’t doing it yet we would have to take her back and get another one.
