Milestones

I've been wanting to post this all week, but haven't had the chance. So, this past weekend while we were in Memphis, Jude started smiling. And I don't mean those smiles where they are sleeping and it's just a reflex or whatever. I'm talking about the fully awake smiles that happen when we're either talking to him or smiling at him. It seriously is the best thing ever. Yesterday, I went into his room to get him from his nap and he was totally awake, just looking around. Well, I said something to him (I can't remember what it was) and he looked over and smiled real big as if to say "hey mommy, have you come to get me?" It was so sweet!! He totally knows who we are now and talks a lot of sweet baby talk. I tell you, watching them grow is so amazing. I love it! It definitely gets better as they get older! You think it can't get any better and then it does. He's also started making these really funny faces. I've captured a few on the camera.

I know I'm cute...

That wasn't me that just tooted...I can't figure you out, crazy woman...
Jude loves his gammy...
And my favorite, I was actually able to capture this. It's hard because he only smiles when we smile at him first! So, getting him to smile just for the camera is a little difficult.
