Sweetest Baby Boy

John-Philip has to be the sweetest baby boy I have ever known. The kid is always smiling, which is a constant reminder of how good God is to me. I mean part of that in a funny way because my son-in-law is not a "smiler", and I was afraid John-Philip wouldn't smile. However, seriously I did pray God please let that baby be happy and smile. He smiles ALL THE TIME, unless he is just horribly sick, which he has been a couple of times. You never have to coax him. The other day Kacey, John-Philip and I were about to get out of the car and we were talking about his smiling. We decided to experiment, we turned around and just looked at him. He immediately began smiling, that big beautiful smile. We just stared at him. After a couple seconds he just stared at us with his smile slowly fading. He would start to smile again but just look back and forth at us wondering what was going on. I felt terrible I couldn't continue so I smiled and he got his big smile back looking rather relieved.

You know it was funny then but as I am writing this now, it makes me realize how important your expressions are to the little ones. So keep on smiling everybody.

That was mean....

I remember when Zac was a baby, my step-father telling him in a pathetic sad voice that no one loved him and that he was a lost baby...Zachary would pooch out his bottom lip and start crying till everyone started laughing and then he's stop....thinking back now...that was horrible to tell a baby even if he didn't understand what you were saying and only understood the tone in which it was said...just not right.

I love that picture of him...he is adorable!!
