First Smiles

I only wrote Barneys one month update at the weekend but yesterday was a special day. At 4 weeks and 5 days old Barney woke up and decided that today would be the day he would smile for the first time and I wanted to document it on here.

Gorgeous huge gummy smiles for all of the family along with little screechy happy noises while kicking around on his playmat, Phil was off work so he was lucky enough to experience the firsts too.  Of course it is impossible to get him to smile on cue for photos but I managed a single smiley snap.


I always think that mother nature is incredibly clever. First smiles seem to come along when the reality of a new baby is setting in.  It's like a reward for all the hard work you have put in so far.

I forgot how it makes you feel, the rush of love, the pride and then the little bit of sadness when you realise your baby is coming out of the fuzzy newborn stage.
