Social Smiling

Yesterday the boys both started to smile more socially. Silas had been sort of smiling for about a week, but yesterday it was was very obvious! Previously they would smile while sleeping or when they had gas, but wouldn't smile at us when we were talking to them. Yesterday morning when my mom was over helping out the boys were smiling quite frequently at her, which they continued to do today. Silas smiled at me several times yesterday and Liam did it a handful of times. This morning when I got out of bed and came downstairs Liam was smiling and "talking" to my mom (she comes twice a week at 5:30am to help with the boys), but when I started talking to him he frowned. It was hilarious. It seems as though the boys are more "smiley" in the morning. This weekend I'm going to try to get photographs of them smiling, but for now here are a few photos of the boys over the past couple of weeks ...

Getting ready to go shopping with mom:

Both boys love to hang with mom in the Baby Bjorn:

Oh Niki, they are adorable. I think smiles are natures way of rewarding us for those broken nights - not that we need a reward - just having them is enough huh? Beautiful.

Niki,
Your boys are so adorable! It looks like they're enjoying their new house too! When you get a free minute (LOL) I'd love to hear a quick update on how K is doing and how she feels when she's sees your little boys!! Lots of love to you all!
