A Reason to Smile

January 21, 2009

The little guy has a new trick.


We’ve seen smiles for a few weeks, but in the past few days he’s learned that smiling gets him a smile in return.  It’s a great game to play, and so fun to actually get some non-crying interactions.

Today we drove out to Christer’s work to watch the inauguration.  I really meant to bring the camera along, to take a picture of Toby watching Obama.  But I forgot–blame it on sleep deprivation.  Still, it’s history, and he’ll be able to say he was there.  Except that he was seven weeks old.  And sleeping.  But the sleeping meant that I got to watch uninterupted, and wow.  I made it through the oaths, but I was a bit teary at the benediction, when the pastor started with the lyrics to Lift Every Voice and Sing.

Today we’ve all got a reason to smile.
