When I see you smile - I smile.
When I see you happy - I am happy.
And when you laugh - what a delicious sound - I can't help but laugh too.
I remember your very first smile. It was September 2006 and you were 9 weeks corrected age (22 weeks actual) and had been home from hospital all of 4 days. You were lying beside Audrey and I was talking to you both when you gave us a hint of a smile. It only lasted a few seconds but oh how it gave us hope.
Maybe you knew who we were?
Maybe you were happy in spite of everything you had been through?
It was the first time you indicated that you were 'in there' after all those months in hospital.

The best thing about your smile is that you do it every day. It is a very rare day when you don't have at least one smile - and most days you have hundreds. And seeing as your smile makes me smile this means that every single day - no matter what else is going on in my adult world - I have a reason to smile.
