smiles

There comes a point, for me anyways, when the newborn stage almost wears me out, and then they smile. Oh those blessed smiles. I could just sit with Quincy all day and try to get her to smile at me. 
The funny thing too, is that I have to make an utter fool of myself to get a smile out of her right now, but oh is it worth it, and all of a sudden I have new realms of patience, energy, and no need for sleep after I have seen that smile.

These aren't the greatest pictures of her sweet smile, but cute still the same.

I know you can't see her smile, but can you just see her little sparkly eyes! 
I was so bummed when I missed her mouth in this picture, but her eyes light up when she smiles.

I interpret this picture as : "Mom, what are you doing? You are acting a fool!"

 Ok, but you are pretty funny, so I will smile at you anyways.

 The best part of her smile... she take a couple really shallow breaths like she has so much joy inside her she can't even contain herself, and then the smile comes, and then the cutest little coo you have ever heard.


I am in LOVE!
