Carter smiles

My heart melted today when Carter smiled at mommy for the first time. I have been waiting for this sweet moment since he was born. We had just finished eating and his little tummy was full and feeling good. He was staring at my face and/or glasses as he often does while his food is settling. I looked down and smiled and said, "I love you, Carter!" with a bright face and he returned the same bright and happy face with a precious newborn smile.

I love every moment of being at home with my son. Even the tough times when he's not being so sweet and won't fall asleep like he's supposed to. I wouldn't trade any second of my day and I thank my wonderful husband daily for allowing me to experience this wonderful pleasure of motherhood.
