Emmett kept me up until 4:30 am the other night. As I was drowsily changing his diaper, he looked up and smiled at me. What a charmer! I think it may have been a real smile this time, but it wasn't the first. He gave his first real smile to grandma Leslie. I am okay with this because 36 years ago, I gave my first real smile to Sarah Darlington, an elderly neighbor of my grandparents who had a particularly high voice. My mother was very hurt by this, so I think it's only fair that Emmett gave his first smile to her.
Here is a picture of Emmett smiling in his sleep, taken by his aunt Annie. Who knows? Maybe aunt Annie really got his first smile!

Our darling baby is one month old today! Many thanks to our neighbor and dear friend, Emilie Ralph, for doing a mini photo shoot for us. Otherwise Emmett's life thus far would only be documented via iPhone cameras. :) To see more of Emilie's work, or to book your own photo shoot, please visit www.photobyemilie.com!
