First Smile

We have exciting news to report. Alden has smiled at us ...intentionally... I think. Well, he's been smiling a lot this week (mostly just as he's about to go to sleep). However, at 11:30 pm after one especially frustrating day, I was saddling up to feed him and feeling irritated that he wouldn't just go to sleep and leave me in peace, and he looked up and grinned. I literally melted. Kinda of makes the whole pain of early infancy worth it, doesn't it? He's been smiling at me all week, but this was the first time I was able to capture it.

Not the greatest pictures - it's hard to predict when he'll do it - but certainly one of the greatest moments of motherhood so far!
