Just now, Sami laughed out loud for me. He was doing his open mouth grin, eyes sparkling, when a chortle came out. Of course, when I got all excited, he sobered up and got serious. He's been smiling since early on. I know some people say it's just gas, but Sami would smile at us while engaging with us from very early days- week 1 or 2. Dr. Sears talks about internal and external smiles- internal smiles aren't in response to outside stimuli- but I really think Sami's early smiles were in response to us .After all, if babies grimace when they aren't happy, surely they smile when they are.
