The One with Jane's First Smile/Snuggles with Fox


Thursday, September 13, 2012

Jane has been smiling for about 4 days now and I haven't been able to catch a smirk on film despite desperate efforts with my camera practically glued in front of her face 24/7...

Until yesterday!

Eeeeeeeps! It's so nice to finally get a reaction out of her. There isn't really one "thing" that gets her to smile. Random silly noises and sometimes tickling her chin or cheeks has done the trick a couple times but it's not consistent. I can't wait to get more and more of these cuz they make my heart go pitter-patter!

Fox was being pretty chill yesterday so I decided to set Jane beside him to see what would happen. One of the questions I get asked most frequently is "How is Fox handling the new baby?" So far he's pretty much ignored her. Once in a while he likes to point out all her features - Nose! Ears! Eyes! Mouth! Other than that, she's just something that takes my time away from him. It's getting better though and I'm sure they'll be the best of friends all in good time. These pics are all in black and white because I hate our red couch - it ruins all my photos and makes them un-scrappable (this color of red is like non-existent in the lines I'm working with). There was a time when I would buy EVERYTHING in red and we still haven't phased this couch out of that stage of my life. Anyway. Pardon my tangent. Back to the kiddos:

They coordinated telepathically - arms out!

Oh my goodness, notice how his hand is wrapped around her! I didn't even make him do that!

"Are we done yet Mom!?! Sheesh! I'm bored outta my mind! I wanna go play with my collection of Buzz toys!"
