The first smile

She smiled at me, I swear. This was not a typical gaseous stomach smile, this was the real McCoy. Ella smiled and I melted. They’re not supposed to smile until 6-8 weeks, I’m advised. But our kids, they’re advanced 😉 And you should see the neck control they have!

I saw the smile with my own eyes, but it was not captured on video. So, I’ve created another video that is also cute. This one, entitled “almostsleep“, depicts the twins snuggling in the vibrating chair. The scene opens with Ben and Ella snuggled into a chair…and, pretty much, that’s it. Clocking in at four minutes plus, LA thought it was TOO long. So, to enhance the viewing experience, I added a music track to convey the peace the tranquility of those almost sleeping moments. (A special prize goes to anyone who can name the song, the original composer and the performer of this version. Send me an email if you know.)

Tomorrow is the twins’ three week milestone. They are starting to grow fast. And they are developing personalities. Ben is fussier than Ella. Ella is a better sleeper. Ben almost always gets fed first, while Ella seems quite content to get the extra sleep before being awoken. And, of course, Ella smiles very well.
