An extraordinary gift

On BabyJaguar's 5 week birthday, he and I were up at dawn. First light had just hit the bedroom and I was holding him and making conversation. Then he looked me right in the eye and smiled. It was his first real smile that was actually in response to something, not just the random ones he throws around that could be from gas.

And I smiled, laughed and cried all at once. Happy 5 week birthday, BabyJaguar. Mommy liked her gift.

How sweet! I'm so glad he gave you that gift. :) The first time Jack smiled a big smile at me I cried too. I could cry right now thinking about it.
