Little smile

Natural instinct prompts babies to start smiling and cooing at just the right time. I'm at a point of exhaustion when my left eye is often twitching. But this sweet little smile is worth it. He's smiling even though he screamed himself to sleep on the drive taking the kids to school. Trusting little darling.

Oh how I dread that feeling of exhaustion. You probably don't use caffeine either, huh? Just want you to know with five kids I think you're amazing! Massi, like the rest, sure is cute.

Oh oh oh - how cute!!!!! They really do know when to turn it on :). He is adorable!

Glad he's smiling for you. I forgot how it does really come at the perfect time...if you notice in all of Kent's wedding pictures I had a bloodshot right eye...so tired from a newborn baby myself.
Hang in there!

Heavenly Father knew what he was doing when he taught babies to smile... and when he decided to send us babies first instead of teenagers! ;)

I too have had the eye twitch. Is it exhaustion or heredity. I vote for exhaustion. He is adorable.

no kidding about babies starting to smile just at the right time. Mine started just when my mom left to go back to the middle east. This means you are near the end of the worst part of the exhaustion. The 4th trimester is almost over.

He sure is a cutie.

How precious.... I'm so envious that you have such a sweet pure spirit in your arms. Babies are an incredible gift. Sorry you're so exhausted. Hang in there!

Paige,

I echo what your friends have said. You are an amazing woman and I know an even more amazing mommy! He is absolutely gorgeous! Deep breathes and sneak in a few minutes for yourself! I really don't know how you are doing it! I feel so blessed my husband lost his job right after our 4th was born. Sounds weird I know but I don't know what I would have done without him home! Thinking of you!
