I Love To See You Smile

So Bab-E Brother has hit a milestone that usually comes around 6 weeks of age.

He's finding his social smile.

It's amazing. I mean, he was amazing before, but there's just something about that smile which causes him to exude personality.

He suddenly seems so much more "alive", so much more vibrant and interactive (it probably helps, too, that he prefers to be carried facing forward so that he can see everything and take it in--this bears an uncanny resemblance to Big Brother).

Of course, Mom-E was the recipient of the vast majority of the initial smiles.

Despite being just a hair envious, I can't really blame him. I mean, are you going to smile at the pretty lady who is your sole source of food, or the balding guy who brings you to the food? Duh!

But what makes it even better is that I've stumbled upon found a "tactic" that gets him to smile a fair amount of the time. This basially involves kissing him on the cheek repeatedly and making silly noises whilst doing so.

Despite the challenges of trying to snap a picture right at the very moment his smile is ear-to-ear, he's given us permission to post the following pic.

So without further ado, debuting Bab-E Brother and "The Smiles"

I can't wait until he starts giggling.
