Our baby girl has started to light up the room with her breathtaking smiles. It doesn’t take much to make her put on a happy face, either. She smiles when her daddy sings to her, and she seems to really like the “E-I-E-I-O” part of “Old McDonald Had a Farm.” She grins when we smile at her, and when mommy sings “Smelly Cat.” Sometimes, she even flashes a friendly smile at her toy dinosaur or the giraffe table that was in her daddy’s nursery when he was a baby. (Yes, daddy was once as little as Madeline.)

All this smiling certainly makes us smile in return, and we can’t wait until we hear that first laugh!

As requested, here are more pictures.
