When She Smiles

Davie smiles with her whole body.  I just can’t get enough of it.

At first she’s a little shy, the corners of her mouth turn up a little uncertainly

But then she commits, and opens her gummy grin wide

and her soft round cheeks dimple

and her eyes close, and she throws back her head

and flings her arms wide

and arches her back

and kicks her fat little legs

and curls her toes

every inch of her smiles

Pure joy

    Is this post after the song “story of a Girl”?? One of the lines goes, “I absolutely love her, when she smiles!” Really made me think of your post and your Miss Davie! Hope you are all well! xoxo

    Awww. That’s the sort of thing you just imprint in your brain and think about on your baby’s wedding day. So sweet.
