Lilly is growing and changing so much with each passing day.  It has been so much fun to watch her grow - she gets more alert and aware of her surroundings by the day.  She smiles a lot, but previously it was only if she was peeing or gassy.  Last week, she started smiling at us when we talked to her.  I cannot even describe to you how sweet it is and how incredible it makes me feel when she smiles at me.  Of course, I have to use a super annoying baby talk voice and make very silly exaggerated facial expressions, but it's totally worth it.  This morning, she was actually laughing at Dan - it was the sweetest thing I think I've ever seen.

She started doing this, of course, while Dan was out of town last week.  I told him about it and he didn't believe me - he kept telling me it didn't count if I had to touch her cheeks to make her smile (which I was not doing anyway, he was just jealous that he missed it!) - so we spent a lot of time trying to catch it on video to send to him.  The following video is one attempt that makes me pee my pants laughing every time I watch it.  Make sure your volume is on, and pay special attention to (1) her facial expression and (2) my Mom's comment.  Gets me every time.

I have literally watched this video at LEAST 25 times since it happened.  I am not sure whether I am trapped in a 12-year-old's body, or what, but somehow it never gets old.  Who knew gas could be so cute (don't tell my husband that, we wouldn't want him getting any ideas - HA!)?  I am well aware that she will someday hate me as a result of this post, but I say it's worth it.  :-)

Happy Hump Day!
