I think I've been pretty restrained for a long time now. I mean to say, when did I last show a photo of The Smudge? I took this yesterday. Is she not the sweetest?
I lifted the next one from Thesha's blog. It was taken on June 26th, after our long flight home from Vancouver.
The girl became and more alert during our hiatus. Although she was beginning to smile then, she now smiles often and freely and begins to try to use her voice. There are a few smiles and a few vocalizations in this clip, but, of course, she tends to clam up as soon as the director yells, "Roll Em." Who knows whether that her first laugh was recorded in this clip or whether it was a complete fluke?
