Jack gave me his first REAL smiles today! Not the little fake ones he's been doing since he was born but real real smiles! He was nursing and I started talking to him so he pulled off and just looked at me so I made a funny face and he gave me the BIGGEST smile! Then he stopped and I made the face again and he did it again!! He did it like 2 more times right after that too every time I made the face and on the last one he made a little squeal noise! Oh man I cried my eyes out it was the most precious thing I have ever seen in my entire life and I think it made me fall even more in love with him if that's possible! Also after he was smiling I was trying to get him to do it again and get a picture (which didn't happen lol) BUT he was able to follow my camera with his eyes/face when I was moving it around! Gah! My big boy is growing up!!
Welcome! I'm Amy, a late 20 something Polish-Italian Catholic dealing with infertility. I married the love of my life on May 24th 2008 and we decided to start trying for children on June 24th 2008. It's been a hard road, but we have been finally blessed with a positive pregnancy test on June 19th 2010, almost exactly 2 years to the day we started trying. I don't always censor myself on this blog. Read what you like or none at all...but this is my story about my "Miracle in the Making".
