Pixel's 365 - Day 10 – Mommy’s Favorite Smile

First thing’s first, newborns don’t smile on command. They’re not ticklish yet, they don’t really react to outside stimuli (regarding emotion) and they don’t understand knock knock jokes! They have SO many facial expressions, I think we’ve seen about two hundred thus far. The most loved by all that have seen it, including mommy and daddy; is this adorable smile. I actually sat one night with a remote shutter release for two hours just waiting for to smile. I tried all the normal ticklish areas. I tried a feather, my fingers, blowing; nothing worked, the little bugger never gave me a glimpse. It’s little pieces of joy such as these that I’ll look back on in 20 years and cherish.

 

(Thank god for pictures)
