SILee has been away this week, so we've been spending extra time at Thesha's. Cuppa has even been sleeping over in case both babies were to become needy at the same time. So far, it hasn't happened. In fact, they've both had pretty good nights.
I am seeing more of the open-eyed version of Zachary these days.
The kids and I are still getting comfortable with each other. It's a work in progress. It doesn't help when he proffers the finger though.
Yesterday, as I was holding the little guy, I got excited and proclaimed that he had produced a genuine smile. Then I thought, "No AC, it can't be." But he did it again, about five times in five minutes all told. Cuppa grabbed the camera and caught this one — the third smile, I think. I know it sounds improbable for someone who is just three weeks old today, but they sure seemed real enough.
Then, as I was looking through photos from a few days ago, I found this next one. Looks a bit like a smile too, but let's just put that one down to a fluke.
Anyway, as I continued to hold him and walk with him (from the smile photo — two above), Zach fell fast asleep (below). Perhaps we are beginning to understand each other after all.
