Yesterday, Robbie finally smiled at his momma!

For several days leading up to it, he'd been smiling at some favorite things- his pacifier, a bottle etc. But nothing that I could really call a social smile.

A couple of days ago, David and I were talking and he smiled in a way that I THOUGHT he was smiling at us, but I couldn't be sure.

But yesterday morning, he woke up in a good mood. I tried to feed him but he was too playful to pay attention to eating, so I set the bottle aside and mimicked his sounds.

He said "Wawhh Wawhh" so I said it back. And he smiled! I thought maybe it was a fluke. So I did it again. And he smiled again!

After 4 or 5 in a row, there was no question he was smiling at me.

Since then, they've come easier and easier. I spent most of the evening and today trying to catch one on camera, but you really have to make eye contact with him to get it, and that's hard to do while also aiming a camera.

But we finally got it!

So I present to you- A Robbie Smile!
